Bastille

Dan Smith brings his buzzing British pop act Bastille to a sold out gig at Riviera Theatre, March 31, 2014.

British synthpop act Bastille pumps up the melodrama on its smash debut, Bad Blood, updating the New Romantic polish of the 1980s for the EDM generation. Dan Smith piles harmonies and oohs and aahs atop tumbling programmed drums, as if Chris Martin programmed a machine to digitally emulate Mumford & Sons. The band returns for its third Chicago gig in a year, in the biggest room yet, for $15 more. Stardom!
