Live: Kaiser Chiefs and The Changes in Chicago
Last Thursday night, Kaiser Chiefs visited Chicago and I have to say, it was sad to see them go. The band stormed the stage at the Double Door, thundered through its hour-long set and left almost as quickly as they arrived.
When I got Kaiser Chiefs CD a few weeks ago, I wasnt sure if I was going to write about them (dont get me wrong, the CD is pretty hot, but Id just written about a slew of other British buzz bands), but after seeing them up close and personal, I was blown away. Lead singer Ricky Wilsons quirky energy surpassed anything Ive seen in a long time even Mick Jagger, who took to this same, intimate venue in 1997, doesnt hold a candle.
