Petit Biscuit Brought Hard Beats to Logan Square Auditorium for Lolla After Party
Petit Biscuit is a young producer hailing from France. While no one in the U.S. truly knows how to pronounce his name, his music has spread like wildfire. His chill beats and synth-filled tracks can fit any occasion. Following his set at Chicago’s Lollapalooza, this 19-year-old played a sold out after party at Logan Square Auditorium. The stage was small, the venue was old, but his music was as fresh as can be.
The line outside of Logan Square Auditorium stretched from the venue steps to around the corner before doors opened later than expected on Thursday. The line was foreboding and the venue kept to the original schedule, so many who arrived after doors missed the openers. Petit Biscuit’s audience welcomed him warmly as he came onto the stage. Many in the crowd mentioned their surprise at the events’ turnout, stating they “didn’t know he was this popular.” The eclectic crowd was made of a diverse array of people, proving that Petit Biscuit makes music to be loved by all.
Petit Biscuit came out of the gate running at the beginning of his set. He played most of his originals at Lolla, so he had a few remixes up his sleeve to get the crowd going. Everyone knew these tracks as the entire crowd sang along, still with the energy of a music festival. At only 19, the women in the crowd swooned over his cute baby-face and genuine smile. After a few known remixes, Biscuit threw down some heavy beats that were out of character but perfect for the moment. These hard techno breakdowns were flawless for an after show and created a no sleep, party all night vibe. After this, Biscuit calmed things down a bit, playing favorites like “Iceland” and his now iconic hit “Sunset Lover” while playing live guitar.
About halfway through his set, Petit Biscuit’s music cut out. Instead of becoming disappointed, the crowd seemed to come alive at this electrical snafu. The crowd chanted “Biscuit” over and over, which made everyone more comfortable with the awkward situation. After a handful of minutes, the music returned and Petit Biscuit returned to the stage to play “Waterfall.” The crowd was in the moment 100 percent. Petit Biscuit ended the set with a slow euphoric tune and finished with “The End.” This young French artist is only beginning his musical journey, and we can’t wait to see where he grows from here.
