Brigitte Calls Me Baby oozed charisma and commanded the stage at NON-COMM - WXPN | Vinyl At Heart
2024.05.09 - Brigitte Calls Me Baby - NonComm 24

Is there any band as cool as Brigitte Calls Me Baby? With their charm, mystique, and swaggy demeanor, an opponent would be hard to find.

The band oozed charisma from the moment they stepped on stage, jumping into “Eddie My Love,” the lead single off their debut EP This House is Made of Corners. Frontman Wes Leavins’ vocals glided over the nostalgic instruments, commanding the stage. They went on to play “Palm of Your Hand,” before pausing to tell the crowd that they were happy to be back following their Free at Noon show in February. “I don’t think we played this song last time,” said Leavins cheekily, and the band went on to play two unreleased songs, “Pink Palace” and “Too Easy.”

They closed out their set with “Impressively Average,” and by this time, the entire audience around me was dancing and grooving out to the dazzling music blasting through the speakers. The vibe was fun, free, and absolutely fabulous as the band showed off dance moves of their own.

Hailing from Chicago, Brigitte Calls Me Baby consists of vocalist Leavins, guitarists Trevor Lynch and Jack Fluegel, bassist Devin Wessels, and drummer Jeremy Benshish. The band has a retro sound that encapsulates decades of rock and roll, all the way back to Elvis and beyond. But rather than stay in the past, they are propelling the genre into the future, bringing smooth, crooning rock back to eager ears.

They will be visiting the West Coast this fall, supporting The Airborne Toxic Event on tour. Brigitte Calls Me Baby will also be playing at WXPN’s XPoNential Music Festival this September; tickets can be found here.
