What a better way to spend a Sunday and Monday then to go to concert, especially when it’s one of you favorite bands and they are playing back to back shows.
Milwaukee was the first city on the stop for Repeat Repeat, the band from Nashville that plays a mean surf rock candy vibe, and totally kills it every time they perform. You can’t help but start moving and grooving, the husband and wife team of Jared and Kristyn Corder, with best friend Andy Herrin on the drums, you really shouldn’t miss a show. They are getting ready to release their second album, and embarked out on a Spring Tour to start it off.
Franks Power Plant was the setting for the Sunday night show, there was three other bands that opened up for them, The Bang Bangs, Mumble Mouth, and The Cave Wives, all which were really good local bands from the area. Repeat Repeat went on late, but that was alright I was planning on staying anyway, and glad I did.
They opened up with “Echo” a new song off of the forthcoming album, “Floral Canyon”, due here this summer.
They also did a few songs off of their current CD “Bad Latitude” “History”, “Chemical Reaction”, “12345678”, and “Your not the One”.
There is going to be two videos of the same songs, but one is from Milwaukee and the other from Chicago, as I love the new songs they play. “Hooks”, and “Mostly”.
Here is “Hooks” and “Mostly” from Franks Power Plant in Milwaukee:
Double Door in Chicago was the setting for Sunday nights show, and Repeat Repeat went on before the opening band “The Ivorys”, there was also “Sleepy Kitty” and “The Van Goghs” that opened up before Repeat Repeat took the stage.
Repeat Repeat and Sleepy Kitty just released a Record Store Day vinyl, with “Elenore” on one side and a song from Sleepy Kitty on the other. It was a big day for both bands.
Repeat Repeat’s set list for Chicago consisted of, “Echo”, “History”, “Animal”, “Elenore”, “Polina Beef Man”, “Hooks”, “Chemical Reaction”, “Not the One”, and “Mostly”.
Here is the video for “Hooks” at the Double Door in Chicago:
And “Mostly” at the Double Door in Chicago.
The acoustics at Franks Power Plant and the Double Door are amazing, there is that echo that comes across that makes it sound very clear when they perform.
It was a great Sunday, Monday of live music. I’m so glad I made the journey, I even got my hand at doing a little “roadie” work, and let me just say I think I’ll stick to concert promoting, as the muscles aren’t feeling it at the moment, but I do have a new found appreciation and admiration for bands that lug their own equipment around I don’t know how they do it, but bravo to them.
