Family Groove Company's Live in Chicago was recorded over two nights at Martyrs’ in the band’s hometown of Chicago in November 2007. FGC’s first full-length live release is perhaps the band’s most thrilling recording to date, as for the first time the magic and excitement of a live FGC performance has been captured on an album in glowing sonic clarity.
Half of the album features previously unreleased material, including fan favorites like “Wrath of the Solids” and “We Could,” while the other half showcases the first official recordings of FGC’s live treatment of staples like “Byron’s Got the Time” and “Ready Fire Aim.”
“We really enjoy our time in recording studios,” says keyboardist and lead singer Jordan Wilkow, “but I think that environment still feels foreign to us in many respects. Live in Chicago is the FGC that I know so well. This is what we’ve so enjoyed sharing with audiences all over the country for the last few years…this is the band at its most comfortable, doing what we do best, and I’m just thrilled that we finally have a record that offers a taste.”
