so i went to a show last night…

02.01.2009

and i saw some incredible bands. no albums in this post but lots of incredible tunes/dudes.

first band I watched was  Lautrec. technical, mathy emotional hardcore that couldn’t come from anywhere else but chicago. their singer Mac was a swell guy. i’m seeing them again next weekend!

i also finally got to see Mountain Asleep out of Louisville, KY. i’d heard of these dudes before, but seeing them was quite the experience. the high point of the set was during ‘don’t tell bad jokes’, a song written in the memory of a departed close friend. the song ended with their singer Jake surrounded by both Louisville and Chicago kids alike, screaming “I won’t forget you!” as if to make sure their friend could hear it in heaven. it was a truly emotional experience.

last night was one of the most incredible experiences i’ve had in a long time. i’m excited to learn more about the scene here and become a part of it.
