First of all, a new Defunct Gig!
That's right. To follow up the 2nd Annual Laying Down the Law Show, Art and his band of Defunctinators will play at Reggie's in the south Loop area. We are thrilled to be able to play 90 minutes this time, and the cover is...free! Get that? Come and see me and the D for free! This will be our first Chicago proper performance, and I'm already giddy about it. The date is October 23rd, a Thursday night. (Mark your calendar now!) This will be a World Series show featuring Defunct and two other bands. It might be a very special World Series show.
But any Cubs fan knows better than to count his chickens before they're fried.
Speaking of the Cubs, you haven't forgotten about my Cubs Clinch the Pennant Solo Acoustic Show at Uncommon Ground on Thursday, September 18 at 8 PM, have you? This is a great venue right in the heart of Wrigleyville (Cubs play that afternoon; you'll find parking), and I'll be playing new tunes along with your old favs. I predict an intimate and fun night, but you have to make reservations to be there. Small place. The reservation number is 773-929-3680. Call now, or very, very soon.
What more do you need? Full-on rock show. Full-on acoustic performance. Rock 'n' roll may not save the world, but it sure feels good.
Finally, here's a link to Liz's photos of LDL rehearsal. Was this already over a week ago? Seems like yesterday. Enjoy!
