  3. Really hoping I can make it down to Peoria on Monday for that show. Even if I can't, I love this band and I'm glad I got to see them a couple times (and open for them once) after Everybody Left came out.

    music is all we got

    Great to hear they're still kicking! In The Shadow of Two Gunmen is a classic.

    Show was awesome and the turn out was great- especially for it being on such short notice. They're also working on a new record (but don't expect it for a very long time).

    Setlist:

    Fade In Fade Out
    (May You One Day) Carry Me Home
    I'll Set You Free
    One Hundred Percent
    Illinois
    West Coast
    APR
    Sing It Out
    Some Things Never Change
    Life's a Garden, Dig It
    And We All Return To Our Roots
    Everybody Left
    These Lights

    They're playing a show on Sept 5 in Peoria with a bunch of other bands from the early 2000's central Illinois legion hall scene.
     
  14. That fest looks like so much fun - definitely considering making the trip down for it even though my September is already really busy.

    Agreed. It's definitely going to be a cool/unique couple of weeks seeing a lot of the local bands I grew up with one weekend, and then a lot of the larger/national acts I grew up the next weekend at Riot. It'll be a little hectic, but worth it.

  17. We may have talked about this before, but are you from the Peoria area? I was just a little bit young for most of those bands, but I remember seeing the fliers for their shows in Bloomington, and my first punk house show was opening for Tina Sparkle.

    Wow I feel some wild nostalgia from that line up

    This band fills a space for me that no other band can ever quite fit. Love them and am glad they seem to still be active at their own speed.
