That's pretty shit planning. That is during ATP. A lot of the people who would be interested in this sort of things will be upstate watching the Jesus Lizard.

I'll take Raygun over Jesus Lizard any day. This show is going to be awesome.

Anon 4:56, understood, expected, and on purpose. I need some humor on a Tuesday afternoon. (Funny though that the game IS on at the same time).

No way are Naked Raygun better than Jesus Lizard. Both are great bands, but Naked Raygun put out quite a few dud albums.

No reason to love one or the other. Excited to see both.

Saw Raygun a couple years ago in Chicago. Worth going to.

Effigies are worth going to see, too.

Raygun is by far the best Chicago band from the 80s and 90s. Flew in for their reunion at Riot Fest in 06 and I was blown away. Four thousand people chanting whoah, whoah. The only album of theirs that's a dud is Raygun Naked Raygun, even though Home is amazing song.

Effigies are a great band live. Naked Raygun should be too. Surprised to see they are playing again.
