    Default Chicago - February 24 and April 1

    Who's in?

    I need to make sure my school schedule allows me to make the trip (no tests that Friday or Monday after the April 1 show). We could get a pretty solid gathering of Chicago Linkers at the show. I just hope I can make it

    I'll be going nosebleeds because I still have to pay for Rush and CF tickets this summer and I'm not making much money these days, but we could still get a damn good group of Linkers together for either of these.

    I can't stand the venue. I'm sure I could make either one happen but I think Rosemont freaking sucks.

    I'll take my chances with the United Center any step of the way. If however I find that April 1 is the better option I'm sure I'll be seeing your crew up there

    UC is a Friday. I don't have class on Friday. It's a 4 hour train ride from East Lansing to Union Station. If tickets are reasonable and if I can convince my friend to go home to Chicago that weekend, I might be able to go. This all depends on whether or not they add a second Detroit area date, which I think they will on 2/26.

    Could that finally be the first time in seven years our paths will cross?

    Whether I like it or not I'm going to have to go to both Chicago shows!

    At least this time they're a month apart. (Last time in 2007 it was two shows in three days.) I prefer Rosemont since it's easier to get to from the suburbs then the United Center. And there is hotel/sports bar—Best Western/Shoeless Joe's—a half of a mile from the venue for pre- and post-show dinner, cocktails and camaraderie. I already made a reservation at that hotel to do the show the same way as I did back in 2007. But there's no way I'm going to be able to wait until April 1 knowing they're playing the United Center on the fourth night of the tour on February 24. Thus...

    Whether I like it or not I'm going to have to go to both Chicago shows!

    I will be at the 4/1 show (Sunday night). I'd rather go 2/24 (a Friday) but the person I'm going with can't make the 2/24 show. From a sound perspective the 2/24 show at the UC would be slightly better. Either way should be a blast! I'll just take 4/2 off anyway!!!

    I'm thinking 4/1.

    I saw Roth play on 4/1 in 1994 at the Cabaret Metro in Chicago.

    If no St. Louis show is added, I may have to go to the April Fool's show.

    I think I might make the drive down for the April show. It's on a weekend, and my Monday doesn't start until 11:30 am, so I might be able to pull it off.

    I'm going to have to go to the show on the 24th. Taking my kid, so a Sunday night would be a no go for him. It'll be his first concert.
    Good thing to know:
    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    Thanks!
