Hailing from Michigan and Chicago, the alternative rock duo, Vandalay opened Friday night at Double Door in Wicker Park. Unfortunately, to my dismay it was an abbreviated set. Having seen these talented musicians before I was hoping for more. Trust me I am not complaining because what the crowd got were some tunes from latest album “Flicker” mixed in with some of the older greats. These guys rock hard and play hard with a captivating live show that could be seen by the sweat pouring after only a couple songs. To me its a mix of alternative and hard rock music. I am always impressed by the sound these guys produce with just two members. Most of all they have stage presence and talent which is not always the case with some bands. Just a couple of passionate musicians who love what they do. Go see this band if you get a chance. Why…because they jam.
