Late yesterday evening I got a phone call from my former Allister bandmate Scottie (currently of The Get Go) and we were discussing our plans for band practice tomorrow afternoon during which Scottie mentioned something about the practice space being near where Santa’s Village was in a rented storage unit that Allister used to practice in. Huh? He didn’t have an address or know anything other than “It is right next to Santa’s Village in Dundee.” Brilliant and typical. So typical of the old Allister days. Now I actually have to find this place.
Which leads me to the fact we are getting the band back together. Sorta. I will (along with our other original guitar player John) be playing a few songs during the final Allister show at Metro this Friday 7/20. Come on out if you can, I’d love to show you that I can still rock out to simple three chord pop-punk tunes. Consider yourself formally invited. Punchline and The Fold will open.
I’ll leave you with a few tunes on this beautiful Chicago Sunday. I’m off to buy guitar strings and find the practice space. If I’m not back tomorrow, call the authorities.
