We were fortunate to play the 2nd show of the FIRESIDE BOWL revival. Which we were extremely elated to partake in. As a Chicago teen full of unwarranted and in-need-of-channeling angst, Fireside was a well of release for my friends and I. We saw some wonderful shows there, from Piebald to Link 80 to Slapstick to Alkaline Trio to Apocalypse Hoboken to The Impossibles to My Chemical Romance and Rise Against when they were first on circuit. There are too many memories to recall, nonetheless we plan on retaining and making many more memories now that it has reopened.
Here are a few shots by JUSTIN WATSON JAMES from our July 13th, 2010 performance there:
Billy slaying the crowd!
The whole band doing our best to keep it moving while beset by bowling balls.
"HERE WE ARE TO PLAY TODAY!" "AHHHH!!!!"
Wouldn't it be nice to find us playing at a convenient store near you?
And here is a sweet flick from our pal Kate Battle, shot on her phone!
We are working on some cool things with our pals at VEOBA, so look out for some new shows and songs!
