Here are ChiIL Live Shows original shots from The House of Blues-Chicago show on 2/4/2012. It was our great pleasure to see Badfish and Scotty Don't live. Local favorites, Midwest Hype, opened and we enjoyed a first listen to Full Service, pictured above.
It may still be winter in Chi-Town but all 4 bands made us want to dance barefoot and welcome the summer festival season in with a vengeance. We had a chance to check out Full Service's self titled CD, released in 2011, with 10 fun tracks including Lately, Coconuts, Hi Ho, Gymnasium, Ramona, Tasteless Gravy, Rocketships (LIVE), Hotter in the House, Trumpets & Hallways. It may just make you wanna pack up the tent in a micro bus and hit the road! Keep an ear out for these boys on the summer circuit. They put on a sweet, live show.
Give them a listen at their main site, Full Service Music, here.
They're currently rockin' Austin, TX (their current home base) and just premiered their documentary, "TAKEOVER!", about their unique, determined underdog style of co-opting tours and scrambling their way up from the parking lot scene to the main stage!. Check out the details on their Takeover! Facebook page and website.
Home is Where The Yard Is Vol 1 is now available, too.
ChiIL Live Shows will have HD videos from that night, from all 3 bands, coming soon. So check back like we vote in Chi, IL...early and often. See you out there.
