On Friday night, Chicago indie-rock outfit Lala Lala—the brainchild of front woman Lillie West—played the Empty Bottle to celebrate the release of their Hardly Art debut, The Lamb. Photographer Brittany Sowacke was on hand at the very sold-out show to capture the excitement and positive energy—it definitely seems like Lala Lala will be headlining clubs way bigger than the Bottle soon. Opening were Dehd (one of whose front-line members, Emily Kempf, played bass on The Lamb) and Choral Reefr.
