THE MOPERY IS DEAD......
When I first moved here years ago, my now ex-girlfriend was buying a phone at the US Cellular on the corner. I went out to smoke, and a man approached with beer. "Oh, you bought me beer!" I said sarcastically. "No, but what are you doing later tonight? I'm having a show". He invited me up to his house where they "all live in tents". His house meaning, a giant warehouse with art and madness everywhere.
From then on, never have I seen so many great bands, sense of community, selflessness, and just a general feeling of people not giving a shit what clothes you have on, who you're with, or any of that bullshit. You could walk in alone and leave with 3 new friends. This was a place where they let me put my beer in the fridge, and NOBODY TOOK IT. EVER. Well, you know how good this was...
Thank you. We appreciated it.
Saturday is the last show. Lineup :
Take a look at all you've missed, SCHEDULE AND LINKS TO BANDS
My condolences for your loss, Chicago.
