Here's the e-mail annoucement:

I know that this schizophrenic weather is messing with your biological imperatives, but it we assure you that hibernation season is not yet here.
You still have a couple of days to forage for berries, bury your nuts (that’s NOT a euphemism so get your head out of your pants), and throw a hump at a bear of your preferred gender-identity.
Also on that checklist: see one, last, GOOD rock show before the cold weather settles in.
Look, exposing yourself to the right music before hibernating is an important task. Imagine a 3-month-long dream with the wrong song on some accidental loop for the soundtrack.
What’s one way to guarantee it’s not “Livin’ on a Prayer?” Come out and see four different, wholly original acts with the ability to surprise, confound, delight, and destroy.
The details:
NONAGON (“headlining” and debuting a NEW SONG)
FAKE LIMBS (bringing the heave-and-throb)
WITHNAIL (inventive noise-pop from Champaign)
TRANSMONTANE (kicking things off with heartfelt meanderings)
(2200 N. California. Chicago)
9pm. Cheap.
Come! Send yourself to sleep with style!
As usual, if you would like to be removed from this email list simply reply to this missive with “I DON’T NEED YOUR FRACTURED ‘LULLABIES’ IN MY HEAD UNTIL SPRING!” … or something a little less provocative. Don’t think we’re not prepared to sit outside your cave for the next few months with Waco-style loudspeakers blasting Jennifer Black, Ke$ha, and the Metallica/Lou Reed collaboration.

Bike Fall 2011

Date of Show: 
Saturday, October 8, 2011
The Hideout
Chicago, Illinois

Autumn is fast upon us and cold weather scares folks off of their bikes like a leaf off a tree, but don't be scared Chicago riders! West Town Bikes is throwing you a party to keep you toasty warm and riding in the cold months ahead.

We teamed up with our pals at Big Shoulders Realty, Chicago Velo, the Hideout, and New Belgium Brewing to bring you BIKE FALL, an all day party at the Hideout (1351 W. Wabansia) on Sat. Oct 8th. This bacchanal of a bicycling bash features so much stuff all we can do is give you a run down.

11 am - We start with a family friendly parade to the Hideout itself to get things rolling. Stay tuned to West Town's website and FB page to get updates on the starting point

12-6pm Hang out on the Hideout's patio and watch the fun happening in the street!

  • West Town's Bike Club Fixed-Gear Free Style Competition and BMX Demo
  • Ciclo Urbano's Mechanic Challenge bicycle mechanics competition
  • Performances by the Racketeers bicycle dance troupe
  • Chicago history bicycle tours beginning and ending at Bike Fall
  • Live music on the patio, food trucks, and more!

After 6pm the party goes 21+ and moves inside with music from:

and late night sets starting at 11 PM DJ Billy Ocean and DJ the Jimmer

We aren't charging for the events outside but will be asking a 20 dollar donation at the door when the party moves in doors. All proceeds go to support West Town Bikes in our mission of empowering Chicago's under served youth with independent transportation, job skills, and opportunity.

This was a wild show in a great venue (that happens to be behind the building where I used to work in Madison -Robert). A fight broke out during the middle of our set. I think we earned a punk rock merit badge for that.
