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.

Click the thumbnail to the left for an enlarged view.

After years of flirting around the edges of “respectable” bandliness we’ve rolled up our shirtsleeves, knuckled-down, (ate some pizza), and put together OUR FIRST RELEASE!

It’s a CD EP called NO SUN that contains 6 songs we recorded in September ‘07.

We’ll be playing songs from the record along with some new stuff,

AND we’ll be opening for two amazing bands…

QUATRE TÊTE- a Chicago trio that plays blistering rock that manages to be catchy while displaying advanced math skills.

and

RACEBANNON- a blast-furnace of a band from Bloomington, IN that will likely melt some part of your anatomy.

The Note w/ Your Black Star

Date of Show: 
Tuesday, July 17, 2007
Venue: 
The Note
Location: 
Chicago, Illinois

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):
