After an incredible past couple of years, Japanese Breakfast stopped through Chicago on Monday night (July 10), playing at the Salt Shed, with opener Frankie Combs.
The Michelle Zauner-fronted act has been on a whirlwind live schedule since releasing the 2021 standout Jubilee, which was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 2022 Grammys and also earned Japanese Breakfast a Best New Artist nomination.
Last year, Japanese Breakfast performed on the Natasha Lyonne-hosted season finale of NBC's Saturday Night Live, playing "Be Sweet" and "Paprika," both tracks also on her setlist for the Chicago show this past week. The band also performed live renditions of "Posing in Bondage," "Kokomo, IN," "Everybody Wants to Love You" and "Boyish."
This current run of dates comes amidst a number of festival performances as well as touring last year with the likes of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Florence + The Machine and The Linda Lindas.
