The Chicago Vibe


White Reaper Preview

Meghan Boyles | November 2017

On Tuesday, November 14th, White Reaper will be playing an all-ages show at Metro.

The band, which hails from Louisville, Kentucky, is known for addictive guitar-based tunes reminiscent of 70s arena rock. Their discography consists of two EPs and two full-length albums. Some may say that the title of their newest album is fitting: It’s called “The World’s Best American Band.” It was released this past April through Polyvinyl Record Co., and if you give it a listen, you’ll get what I mean when I say that the songs are meant for blasting.

The band has been on the road almost nonstop since the album was released, and it seems that Chicago can’t get enough of them: They played the Beat Kitchen in May, Lollapalooza in August, and a Lolla after show. If you still haven’t gotten a chance to see them, you won’t want to miss this show.

Joining them will be local favorites Post Animal, a five-piece psych rock band that has been compared to Tame Impala.

If you want to spend your Tuesday night rocking out with White Reaper and Post Animal, head on over to Metro on the 14th. Doors open at 6:00, and the show starts at 7:00. Tickets are still available, so grab them while you can.
