Trafficking in the same blend of impassioned folk rock and sleek pop balladry that sent acts like Mumford & Sons and the Lumineers to the top of the charts, Ontario outfit the Strumbellas just want you to sing (and stomp) along to its anthemic refrains. Headlining a bill that includes Los Angeles pop-rock act Lovelytheband (they wrote a song about Coachella) and synth-pop group Joywave, this might be the best Taste of Chicago show to attend if you merely want some pleasant background music to enjoy while you focus on digging into your meal.
