Update on Basement Show

EIB basement show with Unloveables, Methadones and Steinways

Hey so crazy crazy things afoot. I wanted to help my friend Frank from the Unloveables get a show in Chicago. It turned out all I could get was my own basement, but through a series of cool events we are now going to have The Methadones, The Unloveables, The Steinways, and yes, yes here it comes... the full line-up of Even In Blackouts. It is crazy because I just worked out a two day flight for Bice from Boston to Chicago and an even more insane flight plan for PHillip Hill. He will fly out of El Paso at 6am after a show with the Independents to chicago for the basement show and then he will fly out at 5:45 am to Albuquerque and catch a bus to Santa Fe for a show that night with the Independents. Oh the Hell we go through to be together.

So there it is:

Here are the details. The show will be starting exactly at 7pm so don't arrive late, because I am not announcing who is playing in what order.

7pm to 10pm
Monday April 2nd
5059 W Winona
Chicago, IL 60630
5 Bucks
we can only get about 50 in the basement at a time... so plan ahead.

enter side door. BYOB and kicked out by 10:30pm

So, Even In Blackouts is once again forced to take an extended break. We are all working to make money. Luckily I get to try to do that while engaged in another passion of mine, Theater. I have three productions coming up this year. I am in a show called "You Asked For It" right now with the Neo Futurists. Then I will be playing a dog who plays guitar for a pretty big event in Millenium Park for April in May, called Go Dog Go. Then the band will hopefully go on a two week tour to Spain and Italy in late May and June, then I will come back to work on a project called Fools. Meanwhile, we are working to put out a live cd of the concerts we recorded in France and Spain. An artist friend is working on sculptures of us that he will then photograph and use for the art. This person also is incorporating us into a comic book, which I think is pretty cool,, and one of the things I wanted to acheive since I was a child holding the comic book version of Alice Coopers "From The Inside. For info about this fantastic artist you can go to:
Keep in touch with us, never hesitate to send us an e-mail asking any question, or just to say "hi".
We are extremely proud of our last record, and pine for the day when we can afford to record and tour again. The record sadly lacks a little in distribution, but FDO is a great label, and I'm happy to be with them, hopefully on the way to establishing an eccletic yet congealed label of talented, diverse bands. Our record made a few "best of 2006" lists which made us happy. If you want the record but are having troubles finding it just e-mail us, or go get it at
