Atlas Genius are a bunch of road warriors. They have already played 59 concerts in 2017. They have played in Chicago at least 9 times. That’s quite a feat for a band all the way from Adelaide, Australia. All this touring has resulted in a finely tuned live set.
The music comes alive and sounds even better live than on the record. From “Stockholm” to “If So”, the crowd sings and dances along. They also throw in a cover of “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” by Dead or Alive. It is very well received tonight at the House of Blues. The lead singer gives thanks to the other bands playing tonight, Night Riots & Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. Then, they close with their biggest hit, “Trojans”. “Your Trojans in my head!” They definitely left the crowd wanting more, just like all the best bands do.
