As Chicago's Old Shoe becomes more of a force on the regional touring scene, they have been amping up their game for their Chicago plays.
One of my favorite of this site's photo contributors is Dale Foster -- whose journalistic style truly captures what it's like to be at the show.
These two forces came together at the 2016 edition of Snow Shoe, Shoe's indoor winter festival which assembled Horseshoes & Hand Grenades (fresh off Greensky tour), Old Salt Union, and artist-at-large Dan Andree at Chicago's 1st Ward / Chop Shop. Now that's a scene, and Dale wove his typical magic web with dozens of great snaps from the band to the fans to the venue.
