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...

Did they play for over 2 hours? I am seeing them tonight.
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
How's parking in the area?

So so, I had to park a little ways away when I was there but it's manageable
Yeah it was surprisingly busy. I guess opening band starts at 9 and I ate already so I'll probably get to Honkey Tonk at more like 8-ish.
I took the bus
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 eating tacos. Couldn't go to Pilsen without wasting Mexican.
I'm waiting in line
I'm bailing, too tired & seeing Sleep is not helpful. Gave my ticket to one of our nurses. Have fun!
Have her join Metal Meetup :)
Go to sleep

I may have an extra ticket, stand by. Message me if interested and I'll confirm by noon.
Asking around now
Dex claimed the ticket. I'm going to aim to get there by 7:15-7:30 at Honkey Tonk BBQ http://www.yelp.com/b...
Can we please discuss carpooling there? I would really, REALLY rather not drive to Pilsen solo, Tony/Laura, you guys wanna meet up somewhere ahead of time?

It's a good idea, right now I'm not sure about my schedule for that day.

It's a Thursday so I would probably go there from work, but I could split a cab with any northsiders after the show! Anyone want to eat somewhere? It's walkable from various train and bus stops.
Probably too tight for me, will see next week.
Tony, if you wanna meet by me we can carpool, I'm right by the highway and and directly north of the venue

Looked at setlist. They are doing Dopesmoker. My tolerance for long songs only goes so far so I'd be leaving early most likely.

Yeah but Dopesmoker! Matt I'm off work doing a bunch of errands during the day, will check with you by afternoon.
I can also drive from Wicker Park if anyone is interested
Dammit I can't believe I have to work during this show. This one is going to be EPIC.

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.

Hit return before ready - link is to Discussion about new releases that might interest those into stoner/doom/psych and going to Sleep, Windhand, Witch Mountain, etc.
FYI, a second show is added on Friday, 6/29 so I am going to that show instead. Ticket will go on sale on 6/20 at 10 AM!!!
