Glaive and Ericdoa fuse genres and dodge elbows at Schubas Tavern

Halloween costumes were scattered throughout the venue as Glaive and Ericdoa performed their second sold-out Chicago show as part of their “THEN ILL BE HAPPY” tour.

Glaive and Ericdoa, with support from their collaborator and opening act Midwxst, brought a fusion of genres to their performance at Schubas Tavern, 3159 N. Southport Ave., on Oct. 31.

Fans in costume were packed tightly inside the Lakeview venue, dressed in witch hats, Scooby-Doo onesies and more.

Fans Morgan Keller and Calvin Morningstar came to the show in costume as Glaive and Ericdoa. They held an UNO card “to hit them with the UNO reverse card,” as they were dressed as the artists they came to see perform live.

Midwxst opened up the show, getting the crowd on its feet while he performed songs from his new album “BACK IN ACTION,” which fuses hip-hop with electronic beats in a unique sound in the realm of hyperpop.

Ericdoa played next. He performed songs from his recent album “COA,” including “Likewise.” His energy spread throughout the room under red and purple lights.

Later in the show, Glaive jumped into the crowd and performed in the pit. The hyperpop artist played recent songs, such as “I Wanna Slam My Head Against the Wall,” as well as older songs, including “Arsenic.”

The energy of the room reached its peak when Glaive and Ericdoa finished off the concert by playing nearly all the songs from the duo’s recent EP, “then i’ll be happy.” Midwxst also came back on stage to help hype up the crowd.

­The “THEN ILL BE HAPPY TOUR” is set to continue through November. Other tour dates can be found on Glaive’s Twitter page.
