Drama City

A certain interview is causing a minor stir within Chicago.

I have to remind a certain AC sounding Chicago band with a name associated with tiredness, stress, overwork, lack of stimulation, or boredom. of this:

(one excerpt from “why your band sucks III”) …Because you think your band is special or different from the rest

You are not special. I am not special. We will never be. Be modest and respectful. We play music because we love to or because this is all we know. There is no need to be a pompous asshole. I hope these columns actually help someone out. It really hurts to see some bands get their dreams crushed, because of how oblivious they are.

Thanks Lindsey:

Stress is a mess

I guess I never imagined playing something like the Pitchfork Festival. I am not nervous and I am somewhat excited. Hope to see you there at 1PM on Saturday.
Hype and buzz are a bitch. Two things not on my side and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Living the Ian MacKaye lifestyle circa 1981 for a week.

I am giving myself a week to cool out on the drinking and be a sober Susie.

I would like to die in India

Just watched this video from this guy Britton in the band Hume. I played a show with him a couple years ago and heard a few stories about how ambitious he is. I guess he did a little traveling in India and got a chance to play with some Indian players. INCREDIBLE! Spend the next 6 minutes admiring this amazing video.
