In about five hours, we’re supposed to be at the airport to head off to Chicago for this festival and to hang out with all sorts of peeps: Gorilla vs. Bear, Marathonpacks, My Old Kentucky Blog, Indie Interviews, Muzzle of Bees and a host of other blogger types that I’m sure I’m forgetting.
Thursday night, we might even be seeing the Cloud Room and Muse at the Avalon. Friday, we’re gonna try to scalp tickets to the Cardinals-Cubs (wish us luck), then later that night is the pre-festival show with Sunset Rubdown, the Joggers and Voxtrot at the Metro.
Saturday and Sunday is the festival, and then Annie and I are spending a couple extra days to see some of my family, friends and another Cubs game (vs. Diamondbacks on Monday).
I’m probably bringing the laptop, though I’m counting on Royce to keep the place warm while we’re away.
Here’s a some recent posts on a few of the bands playing the festival:
