Whoo boy, good chicken now!
What a party, you guys, am I right? Two weeks later and we’re still recovering from the mayhem at Riot Room in Kansas City. How you all holding up? Did you remember to grab your sweater and reindeer antlers before you left Riot Room? Also, did anyone pick up a left-handed brown glove? We’re missing a glove. It’s fingerless. Because that’s how Austin likes to roll when he’s out cruising on his hog.
Thanks so much to all of our friends for packing the house, dressing goofy, and dancing all night to sets from from Bonzo Madrid, Hembree, French Horn Rebellion and Sheppa.
Most importantly, thanks for your generosity — we filled several large boxes of toys, most of which were actually appropriate for kids, and we raised $1000 for Kansas City’s Toys For Tots organization. It was one of the most fun shows we’ve ever played and it was a night we’ll never forget.
We ended our sets in Kansas City and Chicago with a super jam on LCD Soundsystem’s “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House.” The talented Jim Vondruska and Nichi Hoskins captured the moments on film.
Chicago friends — we’re glad you found us at Cobra Lounge! Some of our best friends in Blane Fonda, Ancient Friends and Bring Your Ray Gun joined us for a heck of a party. The good folks over at Pabst Blue Ribbon kindly donated a bunch of awesome prizes which we gave away throughout the night. Congratulations to whoever ended up with the extra-large PBR onesie.
The room was filled with ugly sweaters and the sweatiest dancing we’ve seen in Chicago in ages. Thanks to everyone who brought a toy — we filled our entire van full of toy donations. Special thanks to the thoughtful souls who donated a doll of that terrifying clown from the award-winning “Saw” franchise and a Game Of Thrones coffee mug. If there’s one thing tots are known to do, it’s sipping on a strong cup of joe while watching horror films.
