This was a really odd show. Two of the four bands didn't even bother to show up (Punk'n and The Oliver Twists in case you are wondering). The place was a really nice all ages hang out, but all the kids just stayed in the parking lot while the music and a screening of the film Puppy went on inside.
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...
John was the driving force behind getting this show together. Chrsty brought a yummy cake with a frosting design by Jay.
This was day #2 of our whirlwind tour of Wisconsin. A great show that featured a virtual drummer, via DVD, for Butte and guest vocal from I, Crime on one of our songs.
This was the first night of our Wisconsin micro-tour. The Borg Ward is an old funeral home that has been converted into a art gallery (gallery show #3 for us!) and studio spaces.
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):
