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.
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.
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.
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.
