I'm going to Chicago today. And it's about time, let me tell you, even though it's a beautiful day in Seattle and I'm feeling healthy and well-fed, it's time to get out of town. Out! You know how sometimes, regardless of how self-satisfied and contentedly gluttonous you feel, your environment starts feeling oppressive? I need to try another form of gluttony, or at least gluttony in another town. Do not forget to come to Schuba's on Friday!
You know that show at Schuba's, the one on May 25th? I'm in a hurry so just let me tell you quick that Matt Kadane, yes Matt Kadane is going to be doing his thing onstage while we are doing our thing. That's right - his thing. It'll be fun, it'll be just like in Italy. Any of you who missed the Italian shows absolutely must come to this show! Okay got to go!
If you can believe it - and I know you can - we, Silkworm, are playing a rock show!
May 25th, 2001
Where's Schuba's? It's at... 3159 N. Southport Ave, in Chicago. I get to go to Chicago! Tim and Andy are already in Chicago. Tim is there and having a good time. Chicago is in the Midwest. I found a massive cockroach, here in Seattle, the other day. Shit!
We'll try to make this a good show, so you should go. Even if we suck, at least you'll know we tried.
That's all. I hope all is well with all of you. Check back sometime for details, there may be details.
Tim's in Chicago!
That's all the news there is. Go to the New Years shows (see below for dates & places), and send orders for anything Silkworm related to:
6111 North Paulina
Chicago, IL 60660
It's a lovely day. Don't do anything stupid.
The news: Tim's moving to Chicago in three days, three days! And the exciting new thing: he'll get to Chicago in time to see Andy play "...4th chair guitar/maracas/keyboard" with the New Year! Imagine it - and go see it, if you can:
Mon Mar 26 - Grog Shop / Cleveland; with local support
Tue Mar 27 - Empty Bottle / Chicago; with The Eternals and Sterling (both good locals)
Wed Mar 28 - High Dive / Champaign; with Crooked Fingers and one local support
Thu Mar 29 - Last Place On Earth / Memphis; with The Grifters
Fri Mar 30 - Gypsy Ballroom / Dallas; with Knife In the Water

Thu Apr 5 - Black Cat / Washington, DC; Arab Strap support

The New Year is built from parts of Bedhead, parts of Come, parts of Silkworm on this trip, among other things. I'm gonna try to get to a show somewhere, I dunno where. Maybe I'll open for 'em in NYC - solo monkey-screamin'.
