LIVE: Glass Animals and Amber Mark at Aragon Ballroom
Glass Animals brought dance moves, pineapples, and an energetic performance to Chicago's Aragon Ballroom
New York's singer songwriter Amber Mark warmed up the sold out crowd with her lively pop and R&B fused tunes. Performing a 30 minute set composed mainly of songs off her debut EP, called 3:33AM, Mark showed off her powerful vocals while exuding a carefree and fun attitude.
Glass Animals took the fully decked out stage next, stocked with a pineapple disco ball, palm trees, and a prop TV. Hitting the stage in a blaze of energy, the British indie rockers commanded the crowd's attention and had them all echoing back the words of songs from their sophomore album How To Be A Human Being. The exuberant and dynamic set included the entirety of the band's second album, as well as a few of their most popular tracks, like "Black Mambo" and "Gooey," from their debut album ZABA. During the latter, Glass Animals' frontman Dave Bayley jumped off the stage to bring his signature dance moves directly to the crowd. Between each song, the devoted audience erupted in nearly deafening applause and cheers, and Bayley never stopped expressing the band's gratitude. The memorable performance wrapped up just before 10PM, the crowd filing out of the ballroom with infectious smiles on their faces.
