|CAN'T STAND YA!
The most amazing band in the world (excluding D4 and the Larry Arms, shit... who else is left?) COSTANZA will be playing a set at the Note on Milly-walk-"A" ave, across from the Double Door.
The show is for the Emergenza Music Festival and it begins at 8p.m.
COSTANZA goes on at 10p.m.
Advance tickets can be reserved for 10 bucks by AIM = dontpushmesohard or by sending a message to the account at www.myspace.com/costanzaisbiggerthangod
This should be quite the performance of DCP (Drunken Chicago Punk) in it's pure-est form.
Band members include Zachary C from The Hemingway Method (www.myspace.com/thehemingwaymethod) as well as Miles W from G.F.Y. and Brian W from Esparanto!
Also, we're told Ashlee Simpson and Kelly Clarkson were invited, as well as several local chicago-land celebrities... ok, it was just Bob Roooooooooooooarman. But still, that's pretty sweet, no?
Be there or be a JERK!

|Would you rather be punched in the arm or the leg?
That's what it's like deciding if I want to see Ben Folds in Milwaukee WI (3-12-06) or Decatur IL (3-14-06) seeing how on his latest tour he's decided to skip Illini U and Chicagoland all together! Let's see I can either go see him at the taint of the midwest or the asshole (respectively).

If the Shout Out Louds had a baby with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, you'd have the noisiest -- yet hippest -- baby in the world.
