CHICAGO — For the second night in a row, Atlas Genius supported Imagine Dragons at the House of Blues.

Last night, however, was a much different experience for the band from Australia.

"It was our first official snow day," said lead singer Keith Jeffery, who along with his other bandmates, saw snow for the first time on their current United States tour.

The band missed a television performance at WGN in the morning because of the snow, joining many others in the Chicago area that got the day off from work or school.

Jeffery said the guys did get out into the snow for some fun.

"We went for a little walk to Whole Foods. We only had to go three blocks," Jeffery said. "We did throw a couple of snowballs just so we could say that we had."
