Nonagon is a three-piece punk rock band that was formed in the early oughts and practices in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. Tell me more...
With Quatre Tet, Austerity Program and another band whose name alludes me.
The other band members successfully convinced Robert to hit the road and do another show with The Austerity Program.
This was an odd night. I think this is when we got burnt out on The Note as a venue. Your Black Star was good, but the other two bands were, in my opinion, kind of cheesy. They all had hankies in their back pockets and took themselves way too seriously. The drummer for one of the two kept is sticks in hand or in the aforementioned back pocket even when he wasn't playing. Lame.
We did manage to get some good photos of me though. Here's the photos taken by Dave Farkas and stolen from his Web site (Robert had the best light):
A evening of Tony reliving his college past and reuniting with old band mates in Carbondale.
There were other bands on the bill but I have forgotten who they were (John, can you fix this?). Anyhow, I seriously believe this was the show that caused my tinnitus in my left ear that has been with me since. -Robert
Friends and Tolerators! In a raucous and blatant celebration of bloody regime-change, NONAGON (the self-assigned alias adopted by Tony Aimone, Robert Gomez, and John Hastie) will be flagrantly pushing their noise at THE BEAT KITCHEN.
Here’s some other stuff you should know:
1) You should get there early (even if you don’t stay late) because Champaign’s charming and inventive drum and bass duo, TRIPLE WHIP, is well worth cutting your dinner short for… They freak us out.
An amazing line-up of bands got together to support Jackson Presley Diamond.
