Folk rock quartet Big Thief hail from Brooklyn, but a few decades ago, the band's more subdued ballads wouldn't have sounded out of place in the in the cafés and bars of Greenwich Village. The group's Saddle Creek debut, Masterpiece, balances out its quieter moments with some bursts of noisy energy, providing contrasting backdrops for singer Adrianne Lenker's thoughtful narrative lyricism. Harmonizing New York City electro-soul duo Overcoats open the show. This free concert is part of the 2017 Millennium Park Summer Music Series.
