I still remember Larry and the Bhopal Stiffs playing at Dirty Nellies in the late 80s though, and have seen Pegboy more than a couple times.
So Lady H, name your fav Chicago show...inquiring minds want to know.
For what it's worth: I do believe Pegboy will be playing Chicago soon.

Amen to that :-) don't tell anyone, but I was going to Dirty Nellie's in the, uhm, later '70s to see Jump'n the Saddle Band among others - favorite show? hhmmm - hard to choose - haven't been going to as many shows since I went back to school so not up to date on all the new ones in the last year or so - going backwards, shows I've seen lately are Three Days Grace, Pegboy, Rancid, Toasters, Buzzcocks, Buzzcocks, Waco Bros, Onfall, Mustard Plug, Sex Pistols w/Rev Horton Heat & Dropkicks - there are others in there but can't remember them off hand - oh, SubHumans UK was one of them - lots of bands that are big now I was seeing in clubs a few years ago, and saw a whole slew of them a couple years ago at Inland Invasion the year Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks played, but I'm lost who's playing in the smaller local clubs right now - top of my list for Chicago has always been Naked Raygun though, and then of course Pegboy and the bands they came from, one of the reasons I love them so much - Bloodsport was one of them too, wasn't it?

My fav shows:
Effigies - whenever, where ever (I remember them at 950 - they even played a 'reunion' at McGregors in Elmhurst...damn)
Husker Du w/ AOF - Cubby Bear
Bad Brains - Metro
DKs/Naked Raygun/crapload of others - Palace (Halloween show!)
Sham 69 w/ Social D - Cubby Bear
Underdog - Elgin somewhere
Gwar - Dreamers (one of the funniest shows ever...)

Rancid you say? Operation Ivy played your old stomping grounds (Durty Nellies)!

I could go on as I guess every show I have seen has been a favorite - Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, Slapshot...too many to name them all. The good old days. Where's my bomber...

well, that's my problem as well - I've seen so many and as long as they slam me with no BS inbetween I'm in heaven - Yeah, I just bought a pair of Dickies for the first time in a long while - my son has stolen most of my work shirts, but I've still got a few - just please don't tell me you want a Members Only jacket

No, of course you're not "one of them" - and I didn't have disco jeans with the colored stripes that went up the front of one leg around the to the butt and down the back of the other leg even though I didn't ever go "disco" - erm, and it wasn't pre punk out in the boonies either ;-)

I would only be scared if you still had said "jeans." My house growing up was pretty brand neutral (I was required by Maternal Law to wear toughskins though).
I have my Eisenhower jacket and a handful of gas shirts. I don't think I ever made the fashion transition to 'adult' though

No worries, then - those hit the dust by '79 - sad though, that my Shell shirt finally gave up the ghost a while ago - wasn't much left to it, I was wearing it for PJs by then - I went adult for a while by necessity, and it wasn't a pretty sight.....

I have the matching badge as well - have had them both hidden from the kids until recently - when they confiscated my Pegboy Plumbing and Concrete t shirts, and told I needed to buy the, is it Big Black Tools? one, I figured they were in the know already

Ok, I'm hogging the airwaves here, sorry, and I have to go anyway now that I've had me coffee - but I just have to recount my most touching kid quip, once again - when my daughter was about 8 she was in the tub and I got a call - so I'm on the phone and she finishes, and drains the water and is calling me because she cold and needs help getting dressed - and she whines at me "'cmon Mom, I'm naked" - and I said "Oh, so you're a Bare Naked Lady, are you?" to which she replies "No, Silly, I'm a bare Naked Raygun" - I couldn't have been prouder in that moment :-)

ya'll have a great day now, been lovely chatting with you - it's a beautiful day, why aren't you out riding anway????? - I might get a ride in later this afternoon, the lawn is calling my name right now though

That's great. When I have kids, I can only hope they'll respond in the same way. My parents raised me on a steady diet of Talking Heads, The Smiths and a bevy of classic rock. On family trips, we'd always bust out a host of cassettes, and I distinctly remember listening to the Talking Heads "Fear of Music", specifically the song "Life During Wartime". My brothers and I would sing along to the song and scream in our best imitation of David Byrne the line, "I got some groceries, some peanut butter, to last a couple of days."

Of course my parents loved that.

As for riding - it's raining here and I'm not too keen on being cold and miserable. I'll probably hope on my trainer for an hour or so, but right now I'm contend on being lazy.

More people need to raise their kids on decent music. I'm just thankful I had the foresight to dislike Top 40 from day one...

this interests me greatly :-) If you hear of something, could you keep me posted please? - I checked around the net and didn't see anything, but with them it's not always out there - I'd appreciate it, thanks in advance

The new Mission of Burma "On Off On"

This is fantastic, but I like "Signals, Calls and Marches" better. That's to be expected though...

I like Mekons - also like Waco Bros
Almost anything that Jon Langford does - Mekons, Waco Bros., solo stuff w/ his Sadies and w/ Sally Timms, etc. - is great. Jon records for Bloodshot and also lives in Chicago, I think. Does that mean that y'all living in Chicago get the benefit of many, many excellent live shows??? If so, I'm jealous - although Jon usually plays Portland with one band or another about once or twice a year.
