Thom Yorke - I Froze Up / Everything In It's Right Place....

Atoms For Peace slayed Chicago last weekend. I mean, really, Flea is a madman. I didn't realize how good someone can be on bass. There was a kid on his dad's shoulders doing the Yorke head-weave the whole time. It was the cutest goddamn thing i've ever seen.

Here is Thom Yorke playing "I Froze Up" and "Everything in it's Right Place".

...and yes, that's me screaming "True Love Waits!"

Go see 'em while you can :

Johnny Whitney of Jaguar Love - Georgia

Johnny Whitney is a class act...really, it's true.

Jaguar Love played Reggie's, as seen below.

Not only did they play a loft show the next night, but Johnny Whitney was nice enough to LOOK UP HIS OWN LYRICS on google to learn a song for me THAT DAY!

We talked of manyjavascript:void(0) things including the Blood Brothers,, touring, and his perspective on music in general at the moment.

SO, here for your viewing pleasure, "Georgia" :

...the Lakeshore Theater is closing. Abruptly.

It's happening.

This weekend.

I still can't believe it.

Farewell good friend. I experienced Bob and David, Dave Atell, and Doug Stanhope all make me spit beer out of my mouth and cry tears of laughter.

Chicago is losing a landmark as far as i'm concerned.

Aside from Cymbals Eat Guitars, Titus Andronicus, Dillinger Escape Plan, Black lips, etc....which we'll get to :

Jaguar Love is playing a loft show, tommorow, today...Friday.

They played to what seemed like 50 people at Reggies tonight. It ruled.

It's true, Reggies does look like the TMNT1 skate park hangout.
