The Shins played to a sold out Vic Theater in Chicago last night for their Lollapalooza after show. The night consisted of throw backs, lots of flowers, and pure excitement for their Sunday night spot at Lollapalooza in Grant Park. The intimate show warmed the band up to the Chicago music scene, and boy were we ready to welcome them. A performance from The Shins is relatively rare in recent years for us windy city folk, so getting to see them in a theater as glorious as The Vic in Lakeview was a highly sought after occasion. It’s no shocker the show sold out, but if you’re one of the unfortunate many who weren’t able to score a spot scroll through our shots from Saturday night’s show and re-live the glory.

The Shins are currently on a global tour in promotion of their recent album Heartworms, with supporting acts like Spoon and Baio coming along for the ride. Check out the dates and shows below, and purchase Heartworms for yourself here.
