Congrats to our winner for the Brett Dennen giveaway.

by oz on November 12, 2008

Congrats to Chicago reader Matthew Brown for winning a pair of passes for tonight’s exclusive Brett Dennen show at the W Hotel.

Matt, if you are single, please consider going to the W Hotel solo and picking up your plus one at the lobby bar. That place is loaded with talent and I’d like to live vicariously through you. Do it for all us married guys.

Everyone else, feel free to catch Brett Dennen tomorrow night at Schubas.

i’m going to try and not take this loss personally ; )
by the way, you guys scored some sweet Dennen seats.
did anyone catch AA Bondy on Monday night at Schubas? I could not make it : ( Howevah, i did catch Blitzen Trapper and Horse Feathers Sun night.
what a delightful opening band HF’s was. HF is now one of my recommended bands to see live. The harmony between the cello,violin & guitar was angelic. And i mean that. The lead singer/guitarits reminds me of a Bon Iver from a distance. the crowd LOVED HF’s… made them play encore : )
Blitz rocked teh house that rocked the par-teh. Their live sound is similar to their cd but kicked up a few notches. Portland has some great music coming out..or rather, now getting its recognition.

Shirk made that one and Woody had to bail because he had a tummy ache.

can’t wait for some sess-ee-ohns with AA and other greats

as to woody’s tummy ache..what a wuss. he he i don’t really mean that-i just like the word, wuss. or maybe i like saying you WUUHSS. sort of like douchebag. i enjoy using d-bag whenever i can. but here is not the time. wuss is for now.thank you

Wow, that is quite the indictment. I can’t imagine the sold-out crowd at Schuba’s would have enjoyed me spewing chunks as they listened to Portland’s finest.

But rest assured, I am back at peak condition for DBT/Hold Steady.

Sorry but it was all in good jest!
question-did the lad who won the free Dennen tickies provide an overview of the night…including whether he got lucky?

mrs. oz November 13, 2008 at 8:32 pm

Wow! You better watch yourself honey!

Vanessa November 13, 2008 at 8:54 pm

oz: Matt, if you are single, please consider going to the W Hotel solo and picking up your plus one at the lobby bar. …. Do it for all us married guys.

V: did yah get lucky Matt? ; )

to the mrs: i don’t follow your comment..? nor your lashing.

sheeyot, if i’d known there was a full-on serious side here, or there’s an administrator hovering and waiting to flag comments, i would have refrained from all sarcasm and cracks and late night posts made after a long day of work.
ta mrs. oz — guess i’ll watch myself before posting such ‘offensive’ remarks on music blogs that have a sense of humor…or better yet, a wifey watching.

yeesh. i’m outtie


Vanessa November 13, 2008 at 8:57 pm

ps sweetie, i ainchya honey.

oz November 13, 2008 at 9:25 pm

Vanessa – She was saying “watch it” to me in response to the post. Not in response to your comment. Ha!

It would have been a great cat fight though.

Vanessa November 13, 2008 at 9:46 pm


i need to lay off the coffee at this time of night…makes me too sensitive and on EDGE.

HA def rolled up my sleeves for a good fightin’

apologies to the mrs!
