R.I.P HALFWAY HOUSE : : Loft Show Hopping : Crazy-ass hardcore crowd, Halfway House gets busted up, Chicago, 2/20/10

Too dark, but must go up anyway, a lighter version will be up when I stop using Windows Movie Maker on a laptop from 2001.

Really now....

The craziest crowd I have ever seen at a DIY space was last night, as shown after the first small clip. Was way late, got there at 9:30, it started around 7 / 8. Caught the last two bands of four, which i believe these are Neurons and Raw Nerve. Had never been here. Cool spot with low ceilings. The guy in the red shirt drained every single drop of energy during their set. It seems everyone did. This was sheer insanity. Even inebriated, you could just feel the energy of that circle. Truly a whirlwind. WTF is going on at some of those points? Dude holding your face, are you okay?

The second show started at 10:30 at Halfway House. I knew nothing about it until a text came at 9:00. Nothing on the internet.... three? bands played, and cops were everywhere toward the end.. 12? cars outside. Gangbusters. Nice mixture of bands. Donation stuff. Amazingly layout. Space to walk around even though there were shitloads of people. It sounded like they're going to tear you guys apart!

I , and most people, really appreciate what you guys are doing to have these shows. Cheers to you all.


******** UPDATE ********** EVERYONE @ Halfway got evicted, EVERY floor?!

Dammit. First time there, loved it. WE APPRECIATE WHAT YOU DID GUYS! :(
