NEW SHOW LISTINGS and *hard rock* organizer inquiry

Chicago, IL
dag from amsterdam! despite being thousands of miles away, i can't ignore all of the great, new show listings that i saw this week. plus, i just heard that one of the upcoming meetups has been postponed, so i figured i better send a heads up.
before i get to that, though, i'm very curious about those of you who like to rock. i mean *really* rock. i've seen a lot of the new folks in the group note that they dig on a lot of the hard rock bands, but there are not a lot of suggested hard rock shows. same with jazz for that matter. sooooooo, that being said, i'd like to start working with a couple other respectful, curious folks to be a little more deliberate about identifying, suggesting and/or hosting shows in these genres.
speaking of hosting shows....bad news tricky fans...show has been delayed due to visa issues. i've updated the show listing with the new october date. sucks, but at least it's not cancelled.
but, now, the good news....tooooons (that's dutch for tons) of great new shows posted this week by the chicago reader this tuesday. i've seen some of these pop up as suggestions already, which is great. keep in mind that a lot of these shows go on sale this saturday. some have already gone on sale today (like the lolla after shows). so, better commit now! check these out, and i hope to see you at the show!
goedenacht,
