Company of Thieves at Bowery Ballroom

Company of Thieves performed at The Bowery Ballroom last Monday, June 13th.

Check out my review along with some cool pics. Be sure to check their page in “My Archives” along the right hand side of this page for some more music, exclusive interview with Genevieve and plenty more. 

Last Monday night, Company of Thieves rocked out the Bowery Ballroom. They brought a ton of energy and put on a powerful performance. The Ballroom was packed out, eager to hear this break out band from Chicago. Coming off the release of their new album “Running Froom A Gamble”, there was quite a buzz in the crowd. There were fans there, some new and some old. Either way, the anticipation was high.

The lights dimmed and the crowd grew silent as they all waited for the first guitar chord to sound. After a bit of fine tuning their instruments, the lights went ablaze and Genevieve rushed out onto stage in bright red spandex pants and a cut off t-shirt.

Racing Up the Charts Company of Thieves

by Jason Pollak

Company of Thieves is a breakout band from Chicago. They were formed in 2005 when lead singer Genevieve Schatz bumped into guitarist Marc Walloch while riding on the train together. It was a train ride of fate as the two instantly gelled creatively and have been making music together ever since. They would later add drummer Cris Faller and bassist Marcin Sulewski to complete the lineup. Their band features a wide variety of musical sounds and Genevieve’s voice truly caps it off.

Although still growing, Company of Thieves has released two albums as of today. They released “Ordinary Riches” in 2009 to a favorable audience and instantly drew in further fans. Most recently the band has released their second LP entitled “Running From A Gamble”. Currently the album is sitting at #162 on the Billboard 200 and #12 on the Alternative Albums chart. The band is also currently touring to promote their new album and will be in NYC at the Bowery Ballroom June 13th. (continue to next page for more)
