Hear This: Little Green Cars

  • Copy by: Alaina Kaczmarski

Hey all. Alaina here. So excited to be talking to ya’ll about one of my favorite topics: music. I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again… one of the absolute best things about Chicago are the small music venues dotted around the city. They bring in lesser known bands that are exploding with potential and very clearly on the rise. Take for example the  Little Green Cars. I was fortunate to see this new group front row at Lincoln Hall (a bar/venue in Lincoln Park near the DePaul campus), and I am thrilled I’ll get to see them again when they perform at Lollapalooza in August. Little Green Cars has all the talent, potential, and unique sound to make them the next best thing; kind of like how Of Monsters and Men were last summer. Mark my words, their song The John Wayne will be climbing Ryan Seacrest’s Top 40 in no time. Crazy to think this group of five are all still under the legal drinking age, but damn do they know how to string some lyrics together. And if her vocals don’t give you goosebumps, I’m not sure there’s much hope for you in this world.

I’ve included a few of my favorites that will likely get you hooked.

The John Wayne
Favorite Lyrics:
it’s easy to fall in love
it’s easy to fall in love with you

Big Red Dragon
Favorite Lyrics:
being dead is not as easy as it looks

The Consequences of Not Sleeping
Favorite Lyrics:
and I get scared when I’m not there
cause no one can take care of you like me
and I’m not strong but if something’s wrong
well I’ll carry anything that you need
