Incubus Brings ‘Light Grenades’ to Intimate Riviera Theatre

By Randy J. Klodz

Southern California-based rockers Incubus have cornered the market on infectious, and chart appealing rock. The band is on the road and ready to showcase its new material to the band’s dedicated Chicago-area fans on Feb. 6. Incubus has grown large enough to headline arenas, but this time around, the band has selected to perform small and mid-sized theaters. Incubus will perform at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre.

Incubus—which includes Brandon Boyd (vocals), Mike Einziger (guitar), Ben Kenney (bass), Jose Pasillas (drums) and Chris Kilmore (turntables)—is on the road in support of “Light Grenades,” its most recent album which hit stores in November.

People best know Incubus from chart-topping songs like “Drive,” “Megalomanic,” “Nice to Know You,” “Pardon Me” and “Wish You Were Here,” and fans are taking to the band’s latest release.

From “Light Grenades” radio outlets have pumped the loud and catchy “Anna Molly” as well as lighter tracks like “Dig” and “Love Hurts.”

As veterans of the touring circuit, including stints on early Family Values and OZZfest tours, Incubus has built itself a large base of fans with its exciting stage show.

Riviera Theatre is at 4750 N. Broadway Ave. Tickets for this all-ages show are listed for $39 each with showtime slated for 7 p.m. Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes is also scheduled to perform. For more info on Incubus log on to www.enjoyincubus.com.
