On this particular Friday night, I was excited to see the show with a handful of friends at Schubas in Chicago. The group of us arrived around twenty mins after doors opened – or so we thought. We mixed up doors with start time and missed the talented Aliocha’s entire set. I’m a planner and typically on time, if not early, so this news was difficult to hear. Since I am unable to review his set I have attached a lovely video of him and the shows headliner Charlotte Cardin.
Part of the reason I wanted to see this show is because my friends were raving about Los Angeles artist Niia. She has a soft and beautiful voice which is accompanied by smooth grooving beats and then she covered one of my favorite Spice Girls songs. Niia won my heart over and I quickly realized why my friends were entranced.
Back in January, I watched Charlotte Cardin open for Borns and when I heard news of her first headlining tour I knew I couldn’t miss it. She took the stage with a glowing smile and thanked everyone in the sold out venue for being there to support her. Charlotte has a unique voice that reminds me of Amy Winehouse. My favorite of the night was a new song Charlotte sings in French. Even though I could only understand a portion of the words it was the most beautiful song.
