For the first time in the history of the establishment, a show at the Black Sparrow started on time. Popular Ego debuted to a packed house. With an already established fan club, the transition was intuitive. Chad Rainey on guitar, Andrea Sullivan hitting the drums, Ryan Pitts (from Tigerfox) on bass, Ethan from LA.
Popular Ego also had a poster decoration contest; carrots were a major theme of the evening with patrons and fans alike. If you are well dressed and enjoy vegetables, Popular Ego is for you.
There is a fan page on Facebook. Search’em out. Cintia and Roberta would appreciate it.
Set list from the evening:
My Perfect Cousin
Ghost in My Room
RnR Scientist (birthday gift from Chad)
Bad Generation (Public education situation in America)
Make Way for the Punks
It should be noted that the sequence of Make Way for the Punks and Biggest Baby was intentional. Could someone please confirm with us that there was no pause between the two songs during the debut performance?
Here is another installment of the free-form question, comment and improvisational voicemail art project, 312-DRY-TOFU (312-379-8638). Give us a call to share your perspective on anything and everything! Tell us about your day, improvise a monologue about a local event, or sing us a song. If it can be captured on the phone, we want to hear it.
Here’s another experimental episode of the new show, The Artificial Hipster World.
The Collective went out to the local hipster joint, The Black Sparrow–the ashiest bar floor in town! This episode includes comments on the hipster’s actions, discussions with hipsters themselves, and a few intimate hipster moments.
We still haven’t gathered audio from a local coffee shop, but it is on the horizon.
