In the famous, Chicago staple, Aragon Ballroom, the stage was brightly lit above a large general admission floor, only separated by the barricade and a few security guard. The ceiling, brightly adorned with a painting that resembles the galaxy was lit brightly as Chicago-based rock band Company of Thieves took the stage.
Despite the unfamiliarity from the audience, Company Of Thieves was well welcomed onto the stage, with cheers from most of the 5,000 capacity venue. Influenced by No Doubt, The Killers and more, Company of Thieves was a force to be reckoned with during their forty minute set.
With a quick Happy Birthday and a cover of “When We Were Young” by the Killers, Company of Thieves performers a set that grabbed the attention of concert goers and had them asking for more.
While most of the audience had no knowledge of the band prior to their set, fans lined up quickly to grab merch from the band after their colorful set.
Singer Genevieve Schatz shined brightly, her vocals stretching across every corner of the castle themed venue. Fellow founding member,Marc Walloch, also has a strong part of the performance, clearly strong in his skills. Playing to their hometown crowd the band finished out their set with a danceable song that had listeners wanting more.
Overall, Company of Thieves was a perfect opener for energetic Walk The Moon and we can’t wait to see what the band does next.
