Last night Chicago had one hell of a night for music. Between this, Bongripper playing outdoors in front of the Logan Square monument, and Pygmy Lush.

Great day to live here

I've never understood this, if it's a "secret" show, how do people find out about it? Unless you're just there, and American Football comes out and performs

It was scheduled to be an Owen show, but I think eventually word got out closer to the show that AF would be playing it, generating a surge in ticket sales until it sold out.

This is so cool! From the videos I've seen, some of the songs they played were Never Meant, For Sure, Stay Home, The One With The Wurlitzer, Letters and Packages and But The Regrets Are Killing Me. Wonder how many songs they played.

I mean Kinsella certainly sounds different compared to the AF we are use to hearing, but I expected that. I don't mind his singing in this honestly.

I was going to say the same thing. Guitars are way off, and vocals are flat. :(
