TVD Live Shots:
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds at the Auditorium Theatre, 6/16

Enthralling. Haunting. Lovely. Tortured. Just a few words I’d use to describe Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

Their shows are often referred to as religious experiences. And so the revival once again returned to the Windy City leaving the audience at the Auditorium Theatre this past Friday “stunned” and “transformed” in their own words. “Cathartic,” one friend murmured to another.

Their extensive tour—dates can be found here—continues in Portland tomorrow night. The current setlist draws heavily from Nick Cave’s latest release, Skeleton Tree, which largely deals with the tragic death of his son, Arthur, from an accidental fall.
