Thanks to everyone present at the big show on Friday. And thanks to Elf Power and The Late B.P. Helium, who were not only excellent, but some of the nicest musicians you'd ever hope to meet. We'd also like to extend a big thanks to Thax Douglas, poet laureate of the Chicago music scene, who graced us with a reading of this just before our set...

a waterfall
like dark ribbons
down like plaid
soothing the tongue
strapped in its
seat waiting for the
taste ride to
begin. As the water
floods the
sockets, the electricity
gives the tongue
a taste it's never
felt as a giant
snowglobes the
roller coaster
upside down.
