Sunday, January 10 at the Pilot Light – Geronimo!
From the band’s email:
I love that your blog exists. It's a pretty damn sweet premise for a blog.
Flattery will get you everywhere my friend, even if it is contrived to schmooze. Nevertheless it worked and I’ve included a blurb from their press kit below:
Geronimo! is a three piece rock band from Chicago, IL. We have two five-song EPs available on E-Van Records. In the year that we have been together, we have booked two tours across the western and midwestern parts of the U.S. In addition to booking our shows, we write and record our own music, as well as make and design our own merchandise. Members of the band have previously played in various other Chicago bands including Inspector Owl, Picture Books, The Gunshy, and The Honeybear Wild and have recorded with bands including Troubled Hubble, The Felix Culpa, and Surround Sound.
They may have forgotten to list Smugly Dismissed and Sausage Assassin for all I know. So there it is, you know as much about them as I do. More information is available here. I hope they kick ass.
Monday, January 11 at 4620 Reinvented – The Party Show
This one sounds like good ol' dirty fun.
From Clams’ email:
...Exotic creatures from Baltimore and New York City bring you an over-the-top night of world-class shenanigans! From the award-winning teams of burlesque stars Trixie Little & the Evil Hate Monkey, and Anita Cookie & Clams Casino, THE PARTY SHOW is a wild-campy-comedic-circus-burlesque night with mind-blowing acrobatics, jaw-dropping striptease and madly brilliant stupidity! Bringing together the Eastern Seaboard's hottest performers from the burlesque, circus and variety worlds, it’s like a visual shot of tequila mixed with an intelligent champagne chaser that will leave you drunk enough to laugh but lucid enough to remember. The show will star Trixie, Monkey, Anita and Clams, as well as Coney Island Red Hot, Little Brooklyn (combined, the winners of 8 coveted trophies at the world's only international burlesque pageant in Las Vegas) and local superstars Kisa Von Teasa and Siren Santina.
What a sweet girl. Plus there appears to be some local talent at the gig, so go check 'em out because I know you don't have shit-else going on Monday night. More information here and here, be sure to check out their pics, good shit.
