Today's Advice Post (Which is Admittedly Irregular Anyway) is Postponed to Bring You This Important Announcement...
I'm getting ready for The Joans' CD release on Friday, Sept. 4 at Schuba's in Lakeview.
I'm excited about the show because
A.) well, it's a CD release--I mean, we've waited forever to release this fucking thing (we recorded it last year), so now our fruit is hanging low, so to speak; and
B.) our friends The Handcuffs are playing with us. I've seen them live countless times. They're super folks, great musicians and widely played. Their songs get play on shows like "Gossip Girl," "The Hills" and Margaret Cho's VH1 reality show. Their drummer, Brad Elvis, is the touring drummer for The Romantics and they travel a LOT. So it's very cool that he made time to do this with us.
Also appearing are The Wanton Looks, a local Chicago all-female punk outfit that's smoking hot.
It promises to be a hell of a fun show, and all of this--ALL of it--costs only $8.00 at the door.
Three kick-ass bands for $8.00? Get it while it lasts, folks--the recession is coming to an end!
