Music Soothes The Soul of the Savage Beast/AKA Shameless Plug

I woke up this morning to find my friends from Detroit The Mydols on the Today Show. What a shock that was, seeing as they played Cal’s just a few months ago. Nobody who comes to Cal’s with me believes it, but it really is one of my favorite bars. $1.00 PBR, the lowest mixed drink prices in the city and the coolest bands, who can argue with that? Sure its tiny, that’s what I like about it! Check it out and don’t give the staff any lip.
Inspired by my buddies The Mydols, I’ve decided to break my usual weekend routine of food delivery and Netflix, and will be venturing out to the Beat Kitchen to see my friend Rob Robert’s band Vendooza perform. Rob was one of the founding members of Ministry and co-wrote many of the singles we all know and love. The other members of Vendooza were all in various Chicago bands of that era. Terry Fox performed with Clox, Jimmy Demonte played with The Swingers and The Insiders, and Jeff Wilson was with Victoria.
Dave Springer, (lead singer) was in Tu Tu and the Pirates and also appeared in a little known Chicago independant movie by Don Dinello called Rock Lobster. He plays a lobster and their band plays a great version of “Stayin’ Alive”. As Dave has been known to spontaneously de-pant at Vendooza shows, you enter Beat Kitchen at your own risk. The fun starts at 9:30 on Saturday night, cover is $8.00 according to Beat Kitchen’s website.
I’ll be there, so feel free to come up and say hi. Yeah, I know I never posted a picture. That’s what makes it all the more interesting. I promise I won’t bite.
