Sleep at Thalia Hall

The best Doom band evar is playing Thalia hall, if you don't go to this you hate riffs and fun and music in general.

    Holy crapcakes, Sleep are so good. Despite being off work, I had to get up early to get fitted with my new custom earplugs at Sensaphonics, and was literally running around all day. I could have used a doom nap, and was caught nodding off certain moments during the show. So yeah, "Jerusalem/Dopesmoker" is a bit long for a live show, but otherwise it was perfect. The bass, the grimey tones, drummer Jason Roeder from Neurosis, Matt Pike's gross bare beer gut...

      It was awesome, the only song they didn't play that I wanted them to play was Solomon's theme. They played an appropriate amount of Dopesmoker I'm glad they kept it short though

      Sorry D, I thought you drove, and didn't see this. I would have offered to split a cab, M dropped me off at red line.

    I'm bailing, too tired & seeing Sleep is not helpful. Gave my ticket to one of our nurses. Have fun!

    I'm just going on record here: Thalia hall is without question one of the best venues I've EVER been in in Chicago; last night I saw Goat there with Hasiband Lara, it was AWESOME, I CANNOT wait to see Sleep here! Apparently they just recently reopened which is why Ive never heard of it before but man oh man is this place great. Only complaint is the location is FAR FAR away from any convenient public transportation. Oh and there is a REALLY good BBQ place called Honkey Tonk BBQ down the street we should hit up before the show

      I'm all for BBQ before the show! I had my eye on it last time but didn't get there early enough. It's 1.7 miles from the Chinatown stop, a 34 minute walk which isn't bad on a nice night. I might do that and maybe split a cab back with anyone interested.
