Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Chicago: Parking yr bike at my rock band show.

Dudes.

I'm in a band called Sharks. We'll be playing Baby's First Rock Show on Saturday night, at Ronny's (2100 N California Ave.). Since I'm 100% positive that you're all interested in coming, I just thought you should know that bike parking is limited. Don't be deterred, however -- lock up to the fence across the street!

Again:

Hirudin 9:30pm
Sharks 11:00pm

Ronny's (DIVE BAR) 2100 N California Ave.

I thought you said you had a lot of work to do today.

Face it, Chicagoans are too lazy/hungover to post today. It's disappointing.

We're here

http://www.thesharx.com

I hesitate to even post that, though, since the sound quality is so unbelievably shiitty (recorded with a computer mic sitting in the other room).

Which one? We've got a different lead singer for practically every song. But yeah, if it's the one I *think* you're talking about, then it's Jagger all the way. That's my roomamte, Max.

Is it a boy or a girl?

edit: I didn't know who either of those bands were until I looked them up. I sort of wish that I hadn't.

my first impression was guided by voices, microphones, and the lo-fi stylings of dump... if they got together for the first time, drunk, at 4 in the morning.

I like.

I didn't need any help getting broken last night.


The same, I expect, will happen tonight. Also, in other news: apparently Ronny himself is ROASTING A PIG for us.

A WHOLE PIG.

Now you have to come.
