Nonagon - Latest News
Yet another rocking time was had. This time it was down in the Loop at Cal's Liquors with The Heavy Bombers and Blackout Dates! Posters photos and a video of Blackout Dates all documented for your future Nonagon fan-fiction inspiration.
Cal's is located in the south Loop just a couple of blocks from the Sears... er... Willis Tower.
No, they weren't filming a C & C Music Factory video outside of Cal's, just your average Chicago hole in the road with lots of blinding welding.

I was too busy playing bass to take pictures of Nonagon while we were playing, so here's a shot of Tony's drum kit.
The rest of the photos are on Flickr.
More details to come...
This was one of our best shows yet. The opening bands were good and we were playing, surprisingly, to a rather packed house. We love playing Quenchers. We also performed a cover of P.J. Harvey's "Dress" with minimal f-ups.
John had back-up singing duties with Dianogah this weekend when they performed at the Pitchfork festival 2009. He's wearing a dark shirt, and is hidden in the back most of the time. Enjoy.
We played the Beat Kitchen with Phantom Works (hard, art-rocking, minimalist Chicagoans), Self-Evident (Minneapolitan purveyors of complex guitarcrobatics… SO good!), and Scotia Widows (energetic Chicagoans boasting the algebraic formula: X + All = SW [maybe?]). Lots of photos to look at.
Tony cannot hold back the tears of joy.
Scotia Widows were on first. The flyer for this night's show was designed and printed by Gina from the Scotia Widows.
Here's one of the blurry "night mode" digital shots that us bands love so much.
And here's a much more sobering in-focus shot of Nonagon.

Self-evident from Minneapolis.
Phantom Works ended the evening.
Nonagon cannot resist the siren's song of a post-show late night breakfast. That short stack is calling to you, John.
