Poster for an awesome upcoming show at one of Chicago's best music venues, Schubas Tavern! Best part is I'll be hitting the stage with a new band, The Kickback.
I've spent the past few months learning material from previous EPs, practicing and trying to fit in, as opposed to updating this blog (you should know by now, I jump back and forth between art/music, and I still haven't figured out how to balance them properly).
We're in the process of recording a full length album, below are some sketches from the sessions. A typical session holds a whirlwind of emotional activity; exploring everything from guarded hope to the depths of discouragement. That should let you know that we're putting everything, and more, into the record.
To experience a day in the life of The Kickback, try following our twitter, or listening to the weekly podcasts. If we can't entertain you with music, this is the next best thing.

Come on out to the show! It'll be one to remember.
