Green 17 – Chicago
So, we arrive at Aragon Ballroom. A MASSIVE venue. Sound check is scary as the music swirls around. Fingers crossed it changes when there’s a few thousand bodies in there! Dinner is a treat today…In house catering and I get some delicious fish.
There’s beers and rum in the green room so we’re ready to crack on. Dave Hause is up first and you can hear the crowd getting excited…before I knew it it was our turn. The venue is packed. The sound is great…our good friend Rosco joins us with his marching drum for Seventeen Summers and both him and Michael take their instruments into the crowd. There’s a circle pit to my left, then one to the right. As I sing Forty Pound Wedding (after another amazing toast to the artist Party George) I think I’d rather be in the crowd…surfing over the people’s heads…Loadsa fun! Sorry to the girl I think I caught with my heel!
An amazing gig! Chicago…we liked you the first time we played with you but now, well we love you!
After the gig us Skinnies went on drinking with our wonderful host Lauren Millar. They’re feeling it now! Thanks for the drinks and bed Lauren!
Next stop Cinncinati!
