I flew to Chicago the day after x-mas with relatively no problems, and met up a short while after landing with a friend from a band called Still Alive and his brother. It was snowing and extremely windy because there apartment was right by the lake, so I resigned myself to just stay in and hang out with them watching tv and getting some pizza a little later. The next day I caught a ride with them to Hammond, IN for a house show at the Void House with Common Enemy. We then went to there Dan and his brother Anthony’s parents house a short drive away for the night since we Still Alive and Common Enemy were playing the Suicide Machines/Mustard Plug Holiday Show in Detroit with a bunch of our other friends.
I almost met up with Mustard Plug in Chicago, but I figured since the Common Enemy tour would be with them the next two nights, and I hadn’t spent to much time in Indy I’d go with Still Alive and see my Mustard Plug friends the next two nights. A really good show at the Void House. I only made 5 bucks in tips but people bought us all pizza and shared there beers so it was still a good night. Got to see my friend Andrea as well who came out and then stayed and came out to breakfast with all of us.
We’re in Detroit right now among a lot of friends and a ton of bands. Common Enemy is about to go on and then Mustard Plug asked if I could come over and help during there set, so I’ll keep it short and post the remaining dates. If your going to be at ANY of the following shows and want to help out with food or anything like that let me know! While I support those to go veg or vegan, all of us eat meat so it tends to be easier to feed us because of less dietary restrictions.
