Another fun Quenchers show with a huge crowd. They were lining up out front! Noteworthy moment: Tony losing a stick into the crowd and hitting a spectator square in the face.

Cal's Sign

Cal's is located in the south Loop just a couple of blocks from the Sears... er... Willis Tower.

Street welding

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.

Nonagon's gear

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.

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.

The Beat Kitchen w/ Self-Evident...

Date of Show: 
Friday, July 10, 2009
Venue: 
The Beat Kitchen
Location: 
Chicago, Illinois
Other Bands on the Bill: 

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

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.

Golden Nugget

Nonagon cannot resist the siren's song of a post-show late night breakfast. That short stack is calling to you, John.

Hot sauce and eggs.
