Milwaukee to Chicago

On Thursday we played at the Uptowner in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee and met the great granddaughter (or something like that?) of John Schlitz. The people there were super friendly, especially the guys in Gnarrenschiff! We ate dinner at this great Hard Times-esque coffee shop called Fuel that had “great coffee, lousy service” written on the awning, and it was not a lie. Can't wait to go back!  I also made a video that I can't upload til we get home, sorry!  Here's a photo of our "gnome away from home" that my sister gave us instead.

The drive to Chicago was congested and construction-filled. Sooo glad Alex was driving! What a mess, and there's no place to park. Luckily we got to stay parked in the loading zone outside of the Double Door while we played and through the magic of Facebook and the lovely Mary Renz we found a driveway to sleep in.

The show was really fun and the venue was huge. We had our own green room and everything! Didn't get any photos of Alex playing though because I was working the merch table all night. Tonight we're headed to Morseland in Rogers Park, show's at 9pm, cover is $5.  Look, here's Trixie with the gnome!
