A weekend of wonder and amazement took place in Chicago beginning on the 2nd of August. Ok, I'm probably over-glamourizing, but I had a kickass time.

On Friday night was the first night of the Summer on Southport festival at Schuba's. There were five bands, but I was there for the Shins, Brendan Benson and Archer Prewitt. And let me tell you, the combination of these three bands for $15 equals one of the best shows I've ever seen. I was specifically floored by Brendan Benson's live show. He is amazing.

Then yesterday was the Cubs game, which followed lunch at a little supper club. He he. The Cubs game was fun, even if they lost. Where else can you have someone throw a bag of peanuts at you? Exactly.

An awesome weekend. Really.
