February Shows We Recommend in Chicago and Atlanta

by That Guy on January 30, 2011

It’s been a couple months since we’ve posted some recommended shows, and February packs in a lot of goodness in a short 28 days. In Chicago, we start getting excited because the days are getting longer (it doesn’t get dark until 5pm!) and we get to spend the entire month talking about Jay Cutler’s knee and how much we hate him. You can’t beat February in Chicago! Let us know if we missed anything. And if you see us at the Rock Show, let’s do the B.J. Raji together.

Thanks, gents. You’re both correct.

Oz – what happened to my BJ Raji dance video? One too many sports references?

There was a video on that post? I am not sure what happened, but I will happily fix this.
