The 2 Knights - open mic recap 10/3 - 10/9 2011

haha - alrighty - J-Bone here - it was a busy week & weekend - we hit a least one new open mic and played some reg. spots - also played a rad show on sat. - well... heres the run down - 

 

#24 monday oct. 3rd - Salt Creek Wine Bar - 8900 Fairview, Brookfield, Il.

#25 monday oct. 3rd - Miss Kittys Saloon - 634 E Ogden Ave NapervilleIL - 

 We went to the Salt Creek Wine Bar first - got on the list third - several people who had seen us before where there and excited to see us play again - we got our set off and mingled about for a bit, then headed out to naperville - 

 We have been to Miss Kittys Saloon before on wed. for the open mic & jam - this was our first time on a monday acoustic open mic - it was pretty dead - we played shortly after getting there so that was cool - then we headed home 

 

#26 tuesday oct. 4th - Phyllis' Musical Inn 1800 w. division - chicago, il

#27 tuesday oct. 4th - FitzGeralds - 6615 W. Roosevelt rd. - berwyn, il -

 Phyllis' is a place we have been to several times - we are friendly with the host & owner, and we go over well when we play there - there were a few acts before we played - we played our set and hung around alittle bit - then headed out to Fitzgeralds

 We got a decent spot on the list at Fitzgeralds - we didnt have to wait to long to play, that was cool - played our set - talked around abit and split - 

 

#28 wednesday oct.5th - Stagebar  4358 n. cicero ave. - chicago, il -

 Headed up to Stagebar - they have an open jam run by a local band, and we have gone over well there in the past - we got a good spot and just hung out until we played - we played a little later than expected, but went off well - we headed out to try to get to Friendlys Tap so that we could get another set off but... we got there to late - so we went home 

 

#29 thursday oct. 6th - Rewsters Cafe - 3152 w diversey ave. chicago, il

#30 thursday oct. 6th - Gallery Cabaret - 2002 n. oakley ave. chicago, il

 Our first time playing at Rewsters Cafe - place was pretty dead although it was early - we played our tunes, shook some hands, then headed to Gallery - 

 We got to the Gallery way early so we got a decent list spot - chilled out and waited to play - we have played at Gallery several times before and have a good rapport with the host - we jammed our set then headed home - 

 

----------------------SHOW___________

Saturday Oct. 8th at Gallery Cabaret - The 2 Knights

                                                                &

                                                       Purebred Stems

  We opened the show and we played a "full" 8 song set - the Purebred Stems had a great draw and the place was packed - we played around 10:15 and went off great - the Purebred Stems did their thing and killed the place - a great time was had by all to say the least - and we got paid - alright -         thats about it - we have a few shows coming up & we are going to keep pounding the open mic scene as well so.................. talk to ya later -  j-bone
