Despite the awesomeness of Les Savy Fav's performance on the boat, this one by Josh of The Smoking Popes might be my favorite of the Summer Break series. It also reminds me how great of a lyricist the Moz is...
"...Shyness is nice and, shyness can stop you, from doing all the things in life you'd like to. So if there's something you'd like to try, ask me I won't say now, how could I..."
"Ask" - Josh Caterer
Josh Caterer of Smoking Popes covers "Ask" by The Smiths on Tim's deck
"School's Out For Summer" - Les Savy Fav

By the way - it's NOT summer break, we play next Tuesday at Pancho's!

THE HEAT - mp3
Punk rock dudes influenced by Hot Water Music, Alkaline Trio, and Nothington. Often mistaken for the Village People on casual Fridays.
BULLY IN THE HALLWAY - mp3
For fans of bands like Fugazi, Fifteen, Avail and The Ghost, Bully in the Hallway is a great new addition the Chicago punk rock scene. With these bands as their influences, Bully in the Hallway combines great lyrics, fierce riffs, and an uncontainable stage presence.
'90's-leaning fuzz anthems, small but loud. Think GBV, Jawbreaker, Dino Jr, Superchunk, Sloan, etc. Sometimes a full band, tonight one man.
