Default What SP landmarks should I visit while in Chicago ?

I have a friend working in Chicago and he would like to visit sp landmarks in the area. We were only able to find a short list in SPFC.org but half of the places are closed for good.

Do you guys have any other suggestions? Cheers!

I've only been to Metro and Vic's Drum Shop but those are really the only ones I think'd qualify. there aren't really any iconic physical landmarks related to a sonic institution

you could go to any random piss alley and pretend that you're standing right in the spot where JC scored some H before he got fucked up and went to band practice

South Side is pretty cool. The heritage area of the city.

There is their old rehearsal space that they leased called Pumpkinland. On N. Elston St, I can't find a thread with the address, but some googling should yield results.

I’ve lived near elston for six years and have been frequenting the area for over ten and have no idea what this pumpkin land place is.

Skip pumpkins stuff and go to the photo booth at rainbo where Liz phair took pictures that became the guyville cover.

Fireside Bowl is featured in the rise against swing life away video and I guess alkaline trio played there a lot early on? Or something?

There aren’t really any pumpkins landmarks I know of.

Q: Who makes more money a heroin dealer or a prostitute?
A: A prostitute, because she can always wash her crack, and sell it again!

Q: Why did heroin addict drink brake fluid?
A: So he could stop anytime!


Those jokes were definitely not lame

Walk by Bills old house during SD-Machina era. I walked by last December. It was for sale and empty. The bay window where the piano was was fully lit up at night so you could see the interior.

It's also a 5 minute walk from Chicago Music Exchange, one of the best music stores I've ever been to. If thats your thing...

If you scour vacant lots next to highways you might find an obelisk
