Chi-Town kicks ass.
It's a variant on Manhattan, with much better architecture.
Only 2 downsides
A) People drive like maniacs (reminds me of back home).
B) All the homeless and beggars that were swept off Manhattan seemed to have found themselves in Chicago.
I mean, even if I had change, and were inclined to give it to you, sir, you're the 14th person who's asked me for it on Michigan Avenue alone..!
Also there's probably less than half the police pressence of the streets than in Manhattan.
Chicago has this neat classy vibe to it. It almost makes me want to buy a suit with a hat and a tommygun. It's in the air, I tell ya :)
So last night we strolled all over downtown, and in the eveniing went out to The Metro club to see The Raveonettes.
They were warmed up by Kittens for Christians (who were okay, too) and Stellastar*, which were TERRIFIC. They've got a debut album coming out tuesday, and I already bought it. Nothing too innovative, but they're pretty damn good.
Then The Raveonnettes came up and gave a smashing performance. Really kicked ass. Their guitarist dude was so wild. I figured he was possibly possessed by the soul of Jimi Hendrix. ;P
I went to the aftershow and talked with them for a bit. They were surprised anyone from Israel had heard of them.
Hehe, we don't ride camels here y'all. Cute lil' Danish lass.
So today we might do a boat ride. Weeeeee!
lalala. Gotta go.

An authentic Chicago night time experience.
