The next Chicago show is upon us and it’ll be at Uncommon Ground (Clark) on June 30 featuring the Chicago-based Folk Rock band Tree. Tree will be performing an acoustic set at 10 p.m. followed by Rachel at 11 p.m.
Tree took the time to introduce themselves via a Q&A with Rachel, here’s what they had to say:
How did the band Tree come to be? One day Adam came home from martial arts training and there were a bunch of neighborhood kids hanging out in his basement playing various guitars and drums. No one could say or remember how they got there, but from thereon, music was made.
What is it about making music together as a group that you love the most? The best part about making music as Tree is that no matter how simple or innocuous a beginning, all Tree songs, once completed, will rock.
Any fun stories or memories from your last show at Uncommon Ground? At our last show at Uncommon Ground, Laura forgot to turn her phone off and it rang in between songs. It was her mother. Laura answered the phone and told her mother she was interrupting our set. Her mother replied, “Is Adam’s balding spot glistening?”
What are you most excited about for the June 30 show? Playing a set without cellular interruptions.
If you could tell people exactly why they should come check out the June 30 show what would it be? Good, new music.
One final question — Cubs or White Sox? Concession stand.
