Past Performer Update

by Ryan Anderes

Our Playlist Theater has seen many acts over the years. Some have moved on to receive national acclaim. Even then, many enjoy returning year after year.

One thing that's always interesting is seeing what our performers do after they play here. Margo Price and the Price Tags played here in the fall. It was one of the absolute best shows we have ever had. Many patrons left that evening saying those exact words. It is really cool to take, what we term "a flier," on a lesser known artist and then hear such great feeback from the audience. Even cooler when they go on to claim mainstream notoriety. We get to say, "yeah, she played here first!"

And, as it turns out, Margo is still doing pretty well for herself. She appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night for her TV debut. The video is shown here.

Margo will also be releasing her debut album Midwest Farmers's Daughter on March 25th. The Aledo, Illinois native appears to be on the track to stardom. We are honored to have had her perform in our Theater and wish her nothing but success in the future!
