Nonagon's Chicago debut! It was at the Bottom Lounge. Many thanks to all our friends and fans who showed up! We were to be followed by Ed Gein and Breather Resist, they hadn't made it to the club by the time we were packed up and gone. Oh well.

A Show Report by John H.

We had our second-ever show last week and it was a vast improvement over the first.

In fact, if they keep getting better at this expediential rate, our fourth show is sure to involve opening for a reunited Fugazi at a reopened Lounge Ax with sound by Bob Weston, posters by Jay Ryan, and the rapt attention (and wild applause) of everybody in the room...

Venue
Dave's House
Location
Libertyville, Illinois

The band currently known as Nonagon finally had its first performance for relative strangers.
It was a bit surreal.

We played a cookout in Libertyville that was hosted by a coworker of Tony's.
When we got there we thought there was NO WAY we were actually going to be allowed to play:

The suburban yard was filled with kids and neighbors from the ages of 3 to about 75 and we were to set up on an outdoor patio facing a park in a very suburban, family-oriented neighborhood.
