Mae | Schubas | 10.9.2018

In anticipation of their new release, Mae’s 2018 Tour brought them to Schubas in Chicago on the evening of October 9, 2018. The cozy, GA standing room was filled with what felt like a Mae-fans’ reunion and made for a really warm-hearted, suspension in time. Mae opened their set with “Sing” from the upcoming album, being released through Tooth & Nail Records, called Multisensory Aesthetic Experience, which is actually Mae’s acronym. They jumped right into Destination: Beautiful‘s opening track “Embers and Envelopes,” deliberately followed by track three’s “All Deliberate Speed.” The sidebars and banter between lead vocals and guitarist Dave Elkins, the audience, and guitarist Zach Gehring truly made the night an intimate evening among friends. Sift through the photo gallery below and you’ll find evidence of the everglow of the night: Dave giving a shout out to a couple who got engaged during the show, Zach smiling after telling a fan he remembered them after being asked if he did, Dave asking for a show of hands of anyone who was celebrating a birthday (which, I actually was the day before), and of course, the band rocking out.
