Cobrafest Saturday With Coathangers, Heavy Cream, White Mystery and Habibi #live show shots

This is ChiIL Live Shows full set of original photos of bands Coathangers, Heavy Cream, White Mystery and Habibi.   They played Cobrafest 2012, Pitchfork after party at Cobra Lounge, Chicago.   Sailor Jerry provided drink specials, swag, and free tattoos for VIPs and musicians in their classic Airstream!    Check out SmugMug for our searchable photo galleries.

I had the sweet opportunity to cover Sailor Jerry's Cobrafest, Pitchfork After Party at Cobra Lounge on Saturday for The Local Tourist.  Our original coverage along with a preview of Sunday's sick lineup 
appears here.   Below we've included an excerpt from that piece.

When I hear sailor, I think rum, tunes and tattoos in that order.   Saturday night, thanks to Sailor Jerry, we partied old school, like a bunch of sailors on shore leave.      
Cobrafest was the ultimate Pitchfork after party within short walking distance of Union Park.  Sailor Jerry was even giving out wooden nickles worth a free spiced rum drink of your choice, and black VIP armbands for free drinks all night.  On the back patio, they had sweet swag like free black t's, buttons, and CDs for everyone.  I tried a Sailor Jerry's Spiced Rum/ lemonade/ iced tea combo, refreshing after a hot day in the sun.   My favorite was the Sailor Jerry's Spiced Rum/ ginger beer/ ginger ale.    Spice up and cool down your summer.
This Cobra's got bite.   
Bites to eat and eats with a bite that is!    We thoroughly enjoyed the jalapeno and chedder corn fritters and Buffalo hot wings.  We also went for the comfort food and had some unbelievably tasty mac and cheese.  Highly recommended in the beyond bar food genre.
Last night we met up with a slew of band members getting free tattoos in the Sailor Jerry's Airstream from Chi-Town artist, Nick Colella, of Great Lakes Tattoo.  After they got inked up,  we saw them rock the stage from around 10pm when the crowds left Pitchfork, to well after 1am.  It was "Ladies Night" and truly a pleasure to check out girl bands Habibi, White Mystery, Heavy Cream, and Coathangers.  We're old school punk/metal fans at heart and these girls (and token boy--Francis Scott Key White, drummer in White Mystery) rocked!  
Cobra could have been playing our ipod before and between sets.    They had some seriously sweet playlist going on....heavy on the 80's punk and metal.    Then on the back patio, things were chill with a DJ spinning mellow, retro 50's classics.    

All night on stage, the girl punks killed it.    Check out their web sites below:
