Come Love Chicago THIS Saturday Night! [Apr. 28th, 2006|12:15 am]
Chicago Rockabilly

lil_fatty
Come hang out with me at Delilah's this Saturday!!

Lemme break it down up in here: I design for a magazine that's dedicated to profiling everything independent or under the radar in Chicago. We cover bands, artists, entrepaneurs, fashion, restaurants, music and book reviews. Starting with our 4th issue, we've re-hauled, re-designed, and re-sexified the entire magazine to be a spankin', publication dedicated to all things punk rock and DIY. And as true-blue lovers of the Windy City, we've got some awesome music planned and even our very own Chicago based DJs, Nora Utley, from Shit Sandwhich Records, Punk Planet and WLUW's Hump Day Dance Party, spinnning some tight joints that'll make you want to dance the night away. Not to mention they gave us the entire bar for the whole night to cheese in.

So even if you gots plans that night, drop it like it's hot and come chill with us! We'd love to meetcha and we're always looking for new contributers as well as new things to feature. Plus, we're starting the shindig early and if you get there at 8pm, your first drink is FREE!!! Now how can y'all pass that up?! For more about the magazine go to our link: Love, Chicago.

For party info, check out the invite:

Love, Chicago Re-launch Party
Delilah's
2771 N. Lincoln Ave.
Saturday, April 29 @ 8pm


ps-Hey sofabeast, I'm still heartbroken that you can't make our party!

"Love, Chicago ~ the magazine that rocks all over your face."

Hey guys, i finally got my hands on the reissue of Nekromantix 1994 release, 'Brought Back To Life'. I had been trying to find this album for years, so glad they decided to reissue it! It's even better than I had expected! I'm loving the album, has anyone else picked it up yet, what did you think?

Boycot the Congress Theater, Chicago [Nov. 6th, 2005|03:12 pm]
Chicago Rockabilly

guinnesspunk95
[mood |angryangry]

I'd like to propose that all bands, promoters, and concert goers consider a boycot on shows at the Congress Theater in Chicago.

The reason for this has nothing to do with the great bands and great shows that have played there... but has everything to do with the management and security personnel at that facility!

These people, in their infinate wisdom have decided that the standard studded belts that who knows how many of us wear just about every day are some sort of dangerous weapon and are not allowed into the building. (This is their supposed policy at least)

This all came to a head for me last night at Riotfest (a great show) when we were forced to leave our belts at the door... and then lost them when security threw them all away! I have no idea how many people lost their personal possesions, but even one person is too many!

Here's my breakdown of the problem:

First of all... the belts are not some kind of weapon nor are they dangerous unless some total idiot decides to take it off and wack people with it... and I've never seen that at a show in all the years I've gone to shows. I can see not allowing the inch long spikes, brass knuckles, glass bottles, knives... that just makes sense, but our belts?

Secondly... this is nothing more than total oppression! They basically have come and said that those of us in the punk community can't dress like punks at a punk show! Talk about B.S.!

To add more to the problem... they don't advertise on ticket sites or advise the promoters of the shows to advertise their insane restrictions. So, people get to the show (often by public transportation) and are told "Go put it back in your car." Yeah, that works if you drove only! So they point to a garbage can near the door and say leave it there or put it outside somewhere. Then to top matters off... they threw away the whole can full of belts with all the other garbage! So instead of leaving it at the door or outside and only running the risk of loosing your stuff to some dishonest person, you get the security that is hired by the management of the theater basically taking your property and throwing it away! How can it get more screwed up than this?

If you ask me, that policy is B.S. and to top it off, they pick and choose who they apply it to because some people did get in with belts like that, although many of us didn't.

So what I recomend is that people just don't go there! If you are a promoter for a show and are looking for a venue, don't choose that one! If you are a band looking for a show, suggest your promoters don't book that venue because of the unfair treatment your fans will get when they arrive! And if you have to go that venue because there's a show you just can't miss... I guess bite the bullet and leave your studded belts and bondage belts at home because you run the risk of loosing it. I sure don't like loosing stuff I shelled out my hard earned money to buy.

Physically, the venue is really nice... it's unfortunate that the management chooses such ignorant policies towards their patrons and hires such morons to run security. The bands that I've seen there in the past kick ass too... and believe me many of the band members I talked to last night were pretty uhappy about all of this too.

Please Re-Post this to anyone you can... get the word out so more people don't loose their stuff!
