They came, they played and they definitely rocked it.
Shiny Toy Guns hit the stage at 11 p.m. Thursday at a secret show at Gallery 1028 on Goose Island. Around 300 people, all of whom snagged the coveted passes here on nbcchicago.com, packed the space for the intimate show. However, ticket-goers didn't know the location of the concert until the same day.
The group wasted no time whipping the crowd into a frenzy, playing its latest hit, Ghost Town, near the top of their set.
Their fans appreciated the effort.
"It was a really fun show. The lighting was absolutely amazing -- great vibe, great people, great fun, great drinks," said Eric Ian, who was partying post-show in the VIP lounge.
Shiny Toy Guns played a number of tracks from their sophomore album, Season of Poison, including Richochet! and Stripped.
The Grammy-nominated group isn't sticking around Chicago for long. They have another secret NBC-sponsored show in L.A. Saturday night.
