Concert review: Sparks at Copernicus Center, Chicago, IL (March 19, 2022)

Perhaps the dominant theme of the Edgar Wright documentary The Sparks Brothers is the importance of persistence. Ron and Russell Mael have pursued a distinct artistic sensibility for over five decades, with patches of success in various parts of the world. The Maels now find themselves on the upswing in their home country, aided a great deal by the aforementioned documentary, along with their first feature film (for which they wrote the story, and co-wrote the screenplay and songs) Annette

2021's so-called Summer of Sparks has helped Sparks to headline the biggest venues of their career in many parts of the country where they weren't in vogue for most of their career. Their current North American tour brought them to the Copernicus Center on a Saturday night. A converted old movie palace in the northwest Chicago neighborhood of Jefferson Park, which has one of the largest Polish populations in the city, the Copernicus Center holds roughly 1900 people, and if not all, most of those seats were filled with an enthusiastic crowd who ate up everything their longtime (or medium term or new) heroes dished up.
