Prior to that afternoon, I'd never been to that little dive-y venue. It wasn't awful. Much more personal than anywhere else on the east side. Cactus club may have made a bit more sense though. At any rate, it was probably the most enjoyable day I've had this whole semester. Nice to have a bit of a break!
The Illinois/Indiana natives have been hitting a venue almost everyday, so naturally they were tired and hungry. We thought Comet would be the perfect spot to grab a bite before the show, but it was raining and we had quite a walk ahead of us. Instead, the four of us walked the 5 blocks, and grabbed Thai to-go from EE-Sane instead. (Side note: never get above a level 5 spicy).
Here are the few photos I was able to grab between wine in a coffee cup, rain, dinner, and epic chats.
If you haven't already checked out his album, Gold In the Shadow, I definitely recommend picking it up. It's a clever concept, radiating around the theme of mental illness. It's a fair amount more cheery and optimistic than his previous 2 albums. To put it universally, if you like Bon Iver or Iron & Wine, you need to listen to this stuff.
