Oh Honey, Public, Nick Santino // Beat Kitchen, Chicago [show review]

Beat Kitchen was jam packed with talent on Thursday night with a line up featuring Oh Honey, PUBLIC, and Nick Santino. The show opened with a barefoot performance by Nick Santino played on an electric guitar he purchased moments before his set. This was a switch from his usual acoustic performances.

PUBLIC, from Cincinnati, Ohio, played next. They delivered an amazing high energy show and really surprised the crowd with an exciting cover of Britney Spears’ "Toxic". This was their first ever Chicago performance, and it was definitely a hit.

Oh Honey took the stage last and performed a mix of music from both their new EP Wish You Were Here and older EPs. About halfway through their set, the band left the stage and came down to the floor to play some acoustic songs as well as covers including “No Scrubs”, “What Would You Do”, and “Ride With Me”. They then returned to the stage to finish out the show, and ended with one of their most popular songs “Be Okay”.
