Haujobb, Hocico, Das Ich, and Claire Voyant, Novermber 16th, Vic Theatre in Chicago. Venue says go, Metropants says go, hotel says go. Looks like P and I are set for a pretty badass weekend in C-town. Anybody got any ideas for the rest of the weekend?

By the way, where did you find Choo Choo the exploding pink cat, anyway?

a while back on the main S*P site Randy has posted this and another icon, sized for aim. I just snagged the picture, saved it on my desktop, and voila!

Sausage king of Chicago

It's quite possible me and the girl will be in Chitown for said gala, as well.

The Vic is a great venue to see a show. I saw Tricky perform a few years ago and his chain smoking gave the same effect of smoke machines.

If you hurry, you can still get reservations at the hotel just around the corner from the Vic.

Well, the part of town is great! Plenty of shops + dinning! U'll be right there near Wrigliville. Clark + Belmont will be at your finger tips (shopping shopping shopping)! The show's on Sat. and you will only be a $5 cab ride from a bunch of clubs! I donno about the hotel, but the site looks nice, seems cheap enough. I just know that there IS a REALLY crappy hotel near there.. I donno it that's it or not. ^_^

TELL ME ABOUT THE TICKETS! Do u have'm yet? Are they on sale yet? I can't locate info on this show.

Oops, duh. Metropants says that the tickets will be on sale shortly, they're just waiting on the venue to confirm. Called the venue, they're waiting on the promoter. In other words, next few days, I'd say call the Vic on Friday.
Thanks for the info, and it gave me a good idea. Want to come out to a club with us on Friday? Having a city guide would rock the h1z0us3. I think I know the hotel you're thinking of, I avoided it at all costs.

Dumb question I'm sure. Is Haujobb planning on touring soon, or is this a one-off kinda deal? I'm looking forward to the release of Vertical Theory to be sure. But unfortunately, circumstances being what they are, I can't go to Chicago.
