[In which we realize that God may, in fact, be a circle pit.]
Let’s not kid ourselves here, there are questions about my commitment to this blog. It seems to many that if R. Kelly stopped releasing songs and artists I respected stopped dying, this blog wouldn’t be updated at all. Truth.
That said, here are some tidbits:
- Chaperone will be assaulting your ear drums at Wicker Park Fest [July 24th, 2:45PM]. We’ll be sharing the stage with a myriad of amazing bands, including our friends Ha Ha Tonka and our future lovers Wild Flag. Quoting Sleater-Kinney and Portlandia is an accepted method of seduction, correct?
- Chaperone will also be partaking in a Milwaukee Avenue Arts Fest After Party [or, as the kids call it, an MAAFAP (and then they all laugh, cause *fap* is internet slang for masturbating. Oh, 4Chan, you truly are the Lenny Bruce of the internet generation)]. Catch us at Cole’s on July 29th.
- Chaperone will then be releasing a 7″ single entitled “Raised by Wolves” on 8/2. Pitchfork made mention of this. We’re right below Boston Spaceships’ “Let it Beard”. If you have any money left after purchasing that gem [or the Arcade Fire DVD, Okkervil River single, Moonface album, etc...], please consider purchasing our record as well. We promise that it will be, at the very least, useful for killing a (few) zombie(s).
- 1/5th of Chaperone watched fireworks from the beach rather than Fucked Up at Lincoln Hall. It was worth it. Next time, however, he’ll be inviting the members of Fucked Up to perform at the beach while fireworks are going off. Valentine’s Day is looking mighty fine this year.
That is, I think, all. If you have any questions/complaints/concerns/quality control issues, please don’t hesitate to have R. Kelly write a song about it, I’m sure I’ll respond quickly.
You have my heart and my hands,
