My show attendance has been lacking over the last few years. I guess I’m getting OLD because I’m finding that sometimes I’d rather just hang at home (Dateline tho) vs venture out to the city for a concert (…and do you even KNOW what the parking is like in Wrigleyville?!). Well, that’s not very punk rock of me, so another one of my New Year’s resolutions was to say “yes” to more shows this year. I have an uncharacteristically high amount of posts on the Lawrence Arms, but hell, here’s another one. Saw them on April 12th at Metro with Banner Pilot (god, they were good), and here’s a clip of everyone’s favorite New Year’s Eve tune, “100 Resolutions.”

May 26th, 2016 at Reggie’s Rock Club. Brendan Kelly opened and was fantastic, but unfortunately I don’t have any pictures of his performance.

Saw AM Taxi play at SubT on 02/13/16. Fantastic as always. They did a great cover of Wilco’s “I Am Trying to Break Your Heart,” a song which I’d normally hate on its own. Covered though, it was amazing.

Photo: Hiro Tanaka Photo Release (Special guests: the Lawrence Arms)

Last week, I went to a photo book release show for photographer Hiro Tanaka at the Town Hall Pub in Chicago, IL. He’s known for photographic a lot of bands over the years, including Cursive, Anti-Flag and Bomb the Music Industry. Near the end of the night, the Lawrence Arms came together to do an improptu set. The first two photos below are of their set. The ones following are of Sundowner, Treasure Fleet and Brendan Kelly (solo) respectively. Check out more info about Hiro here, including a link to his Kickstarter campaign.
