and all the death that ever was, set next to life,
would scarcely fill a cup.”

Desert Noises
Tyler Osmond, Kyle Henderson, Brennan Allen, and Pat Boyers
Schuba’s Tavern | Chicago, Illinois | April 4, 2014

   Friday’s Desert Noises show at Schuba’s Tavern could potentially be the final time this gifted band plays a venue this small in Chicago.  Desert Noises are currently touring North America supporting their new album “27 Ways.”  On this evening, they were the opening act for headliners The Wheeler Brothers, and were allotted a solid 45 minute set.
