Last night the lovely Swedes, Shout Out Louds gave a spot on perfect show at Doug Fir Lounge, full of energy and completely polished. I love these guys and highly recommend seeing them live! The opener was Freelance Whales, a newish band from Brooklyn. Check them out here.

hi, i have been following your blog a long time now (and it’s really inspiring!!) but i never commented on any post. i saw shout out louds unplugged last summer:) they are great!
Thanks for the comment, Kerstin! They are great huh?:)
The bow in her hair is perfect, Thanks for the recomendation.
Oooh. That one in the middle must be the one who “got” a baby!
That is exactly what I was thinking, Jen.
I hope they make a pitstop in Toronto!
I remember you mentioned the Shout Out Louds before, so when I saw a poster at Lincoln Theater in Chicago announcing an upcoming show, I made a mental note to attend. Alas, I forgot and the show has passed. I will check out their music, though!
Yes, Dottie! Their sound has evolved quite a bit. They are one of the few bands who has gone from being really produced to a creating a much simpler sound. The new album, Work is really, really good. And, it’s upbeat, unlike most of my music recommendations:)
Thanks for the introduction to Freelance Whales. I’ve just added them to my May playlist!
thanks for the music inspiration Chelsea! ! wish I was in portland to see them… maybe I’ll catch them in Sweden 🙂
