this goes out to our fan club in chicago. which admittedly right now consists of 1 possibly 2 fans, but man are they rabid. i’m wearing pads and a helmet next time. this past weekend the weather was 71 degrees with a light breeze and i found myself lost and wandering through chicago. a welcome break from east coast squalor, there’s nothing like this sturdy city by the lake in the summer. from the live symphony playing at the band shell in millenium park to the fantastic architecture surrounding you at every corner, my excitement almost saw me burst into singing the old sinatra standard. some bystanders might say i did. embarassed, i high-tailed up renzo piano’s arching walkway straight into the newly opened modern art wing of the art institute of chicago. an impressive structure, and the collections and exhibitions were just right for what ailed me. if you’re there, check out the Cy Twombly collection (so far no one has been arrested for kissing yet). i found it really relaxing: both chaotic yet comforting, which isn’t a combination i often stumble across in modern work. in a way, the art actually reminded me of what we were trying to go for rhythmically on ‘who stole the view’ on the new Roofwalkers release.
also, with live performances, strong coffee, and wall to wall beatniks in yellow glasses whats not to love: hit the museum when you’re at pitchfork fest in august. i think its even free thurs & fri nites.
