Give It Voice Regional Showcase::Chicago::Metro::01/20/11
Shure is right outside Chicago, and so we were out in force for the second showcase of regional finalists in the SM58® Give It Voice Tour. All three bands were from the City of Chicago, each representing a very different genre from each other. Opening the show, St. Bagu was a hip-hop act with two MCs fronting a live band. Rivals of the Peacemaker, an eight-member alt-country act, followed. Closing the night was Samantha, a power rock/punk trio. Taking the judges vote by one point, was St. Bagu, who now move on to the next round of voting.
