“Black Wednesday” is a (mostly) Chicago colloquialism used to refer to the day before Thanksgiving, to symbolize a Homecoming-Of-Sorts. And this year’s Homecoming Queen was Kid Sister, stopping in at Chicago’s House Of Blues while on tour to promote her debut album, Ultraviolet. She was backed by duo Flosstradamus, with whom she started as MC in the Chicago club circuit years ago.
While it was a fun time, I do want to casually mention that the “Ultraviolet” stage lighting theme made my job challenging. Red and Magenta stage lights are a concert photographer’s worst enemy. However, House Of Blues is a really fancy venue with good sound, and Kid Sister knew how to take advantage of that to get a full house dancing.
