On June 4th, indie rock band, Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever made a stop in Chicago at Thalia Hall. Supporting them were fellow Melbourne natives, RVG. During RVG’s set a couple songs that stood out to me were “I Used to Love You” and “The Eggshell World,” which are both on their debut album, A Quality in Mercy. Rolling Blackouts C.F then came on stage playing songs off their sophomore release, Hopes Down, like “Time in Common,” “The Hammer,” and “Exclusive Grave.” After their appearance at the Governor’s Ball in New York Rolling Blackouts C.F has been considered the standout act of the fest by Stereogum, in which I concur with. Throughout the night the show was chill and had a more laid back atmosphere and was overall a delightful show.
