Windy City Recap, Pool Party Sunday!

Superchunk had a great time in Chicago, 5 years since our last trip to the Metro and for a great cause this time. Ponys rocked, Mountain Goats were awesome as usual, and our set went well despite the fact that i found myself gasping for air 3/4 of the way through the set, oweing to me being not in peak rock-shape:

throwing things
animated airplanes
on the mouth
seed toss
untied
misfits and mistakes
so convinced
water wings
cursed mirror
let it go
without blinking
kicked in
hello hawk
punch me harder
slack motherf%cker

encores:
like a fool
precision
hyper enough

it was great to meet Sean Silver's (for whom the Eff Cancer Benefit was put together)
parents, brother Brian and sister Liz, other friends and relatives of Sean's, and to raise some cash for research and support for others with the same type of cancer that Sean had.

heading to NYC tomorrow for the McCarren Pool Party on Sunday -- it's free but you're supposed to RSVP HERE. see you in the pool!

the gasping must have been well-camoflauged because from where i stood, it was NON-STOP ROCK. truly a special evening and a great show.
