Gomez is a band with multiple singers and songwriters and that gives them a lot of flexibility. It comes through in their progressive, indie rock arrangements which have garnered them a large and loyal audience here in Chicago.
They hail from Southport, England and, in a touch of geographical irony, played a Live From Studio X show at Schubas, which is located on North Southport.
Hear their sold-out XRT show at the Vic Theatre in 2006 on this week’s XRT Sunday Night Concert. Prepare with these:
A tale of eternity.
A how to musical manual for empathy.
The kind of advice your dad would give you if he was in a band.
Sometimes it’s good to go wobbly.
A trailer trash classic!
The other Gomez.
