Earlier this summer my old friend Andy and his (then) girlfriend Julia took a road trip and (much to everyone’s surprise) ended up getting married in Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico. Their quasi reception just happened to be last night at Chicago’s Liar’s Club on Fullerton. And in true Pishko fashion, the beer choices from the bar were Pabst Blue Ribbon or Bell’s Oberon. I think everyone had a great time.
Amy and I drank a little with my brother Kurt and his fiancee Kelly and got to see a lot of old friends and acquaintances including Andy, Kris, KP, Bill, Chad, Nolan, and probably a bunch more that I’m forgetting about. The nostalgia is slowly creeping back.
They also had Chicago’s finest wedding band to entertain the lot of us. Earlier this year the wedding band released their fifth proper full-length on Fat Wreck Chords, but last night they played cover songs from the likes of Salt N’ Pepa, Journey, REO Speedwagon, Tiffany, The Mushuganas, Scorpions, Jawbreaker, Cutting Crew, and more… Fuckin-a-right!
Since this is a music blog, watch a video snippet of their performance and also the original song.
