Attention Chicagoans!

This Sunday, December 6th, carnyjack, dr_whuh, kaffyr, and I are going to the Chopin Theatre to see All the Fame of Lofty Deeds. (Many thanks to Dave Langford for mentioning this show featuring his brother's music and art.) As The House Theatre's website says:

"Written by rock journalist Mark Guarino and featuring the music and artwork of Bloodshot Records recording artist Jon Langford, this phantasmic journey into the mind of a fictional country music legend is what an episode of Howdy Doody might look like if it were directed by David Lynch. Sadly reflective and yet hilariously surreal, the show mixes rock biography, live music and stunning visual effects to tell a tripped out tale of the demise of America's last living cowboy."

Tickets are $25, plus what looks like a 10% online ticketing fee. If others reading or hearing about this outing would like to join us at the show, please buy your ticket(s) directly and comment here* so we know to look for you. Our ticket order didn't come with specific seat assignments -- I don't know whether the theatre is allocating seats now or when we pick up the tickets at the door. If it's when we pick them up, we may be able to group our seats together, but that's of course far from guaranteed.

The Chopin Theatre is in Wicker Park, at 1543 West Division, Chicago, IL 60642. Directions here or via your preferred mapping service.

Showtime is 7pm. I hope we'll find a convenient place nearby for coffee/dessert/bheer/whatever after the show.

If you're in the Chicago area this Sunday, I hope you'll be able to join us!

*If you'd rather not comment here, please send me email (address in my LJ profile) or call me on my cell phone (if you have the number).

This does sound like a whole lot of fun, but I have no idea when Louie and I will be in Chicago next. A review of the show (after it happens, not before) would be appreciated.

This has... possibilities.

(The theater is steps away from the Blue Line Division stop, for those for whom this information is useful.)

Although I'd be more likely to hang around before the show, than after (places to be, etc).

Places nearby, for some definitions of "near", include the Alliance Bakery, Ear Wax (despite the name, a very good restaurant), and Filter may be open now. I don't know if any of those places will be open late on Sunday, though.

I hope the possibilities turns into reality for you. It's been Too Long!

The before possibilities are iffy for Jack & me -- we're up in Milwaukee through early afternoon, and while we should be back in time to do something before the show, I have enough experience with Jack & Geri Time to formally schedule anything much in advance.

Do you have my cell number? I don't think I have a number for you, though I expect to be able to check email throughout the weekend. Please send email to my toad-hall.com address (see LJ profile) and I'll to my best to keep you in the loop with whatever happens.

I have the number you sent me via LJ-message last year. Let's see if it works.

You have the right cell number, but I am a luddite and have no texting service on my phone. You can call me, but I don't text in or out. Sorry about that!

I wish! But Saturday's activities mean that I'll likely spend Sunday just recovering, not leaving town for more activities. Please post about it here, though.
