Dopest Videos - 2014

Next up for our “Dopest of…” series is our music videos list. The art of creating visuals to music may not be as appreciated as it once was (you can draw parallels with TRL’s last years of relevancy), but at least the quality hasn’t suffered from it. This list showcases everything we dug in 2014, highlighting everything from throwback choreography routines to visuals that can double as Horror short films.

Recap: Young The Giant Live at the Riviera Theatre

posted by Oscar March 24, 2014

Saturday night saw the return of Young The Giant to Chicago since releasing their last album, Mind Over Matter. The last time we saw these guys was also in Uptown’s Riviera Theatre and it was actually one of the earliest recaps we did for the site. This time around the tickets came courtesy of DO312.com after I entered their giveaway for this show and I was lucky enough to win myself a pair, so shout-outs to them for the free show.

The show itself was an experience worth re-telling for the simple fact that I was able to see that Young The Giant has gotten so much better in these last few years. The last time around YTG sure had a great number of fans that helped justify that last Riviera show being able to sell-out, but many of those at the show were fans of “the singles,” and at this show it was much easier to pick out that sort of fan over those who didnt know the lyrics to every song on the set list.
