Chicago’s own AM Taxi performed at the iconic Double Door for the release show of their new Semi-Confessional (mixtape).
The city came out in force to support their own on Friday night, as AM Taxi celebrate the release of their new mixtape, and did not leave disappointed.
From the moment he stepped onto the renowned stage at the Double Door, frontman Adam Krier was always on the move and barely stopped. It was obvious that Krier and the rest of the band had been itching to play this show.
AM Taxi put on an impassioned performance from beginning to end with the band tearing through a set that spanned their entire catalogue from “The Mistake” and “Tanner Boyle Vs the 7th Grade” (which were on the 2007 EP Runaway Songs) through to a number of tracks from Semi-Confessional (mixtape).
Even at the end of the night, when the fans were demanding one more song, Krier still delivered, even though he was starting to lose his voice from the night’s performance.
It is great to attend a show for a local band where the audience displays a level of passion and support that you would typically see for international rock bands. They crammed in close to the stage and sang every word; the band couldn’t help but feed off the energy of their hometown crowd.
Which such enthusiasm from both band and audience, it is surprising they have not yet made the national stage. With continued support for their loyal fanbase, bigger things should be around the corner for AM Taxi.
If you are in the Chicago area this weekend, AM Taxi is playing a free show at Lombard’s Brauerhouse on Saturday, May 21.
