Chicago what!!!!!

Chi Theatre is a superb venue. Auditorium is OK, but not as good sound IMO.

I've never been to Chicago - is that near O'hare or Midway airports? It looks like I can get a nonstop flight tue morning and come back thurs for like 200 bucks.. I would totally do that.

No, it's not but both airports have train stations that will take you to the Loop (Midway is closer).

I would say Midway is closer to downtown.. its definitely a shorter public transportation ride. About 30 minute train compared to an hour or so from Ohaare.

But I'm not making promises yet, so don't get your hopes up quite yet

so far the cheapest I have seen is 200 bucks for my flight and it looks like that Days Inn would be 200 bucks for 2 nights (100 bucks per person if someone split it with me) if I couldn't find a Chicagoan to crash with.

You Canadians remember that the weekend of the 22nd is the weekend before Thanksgiving here, so travel is going to be pretty hectic 'round these parts.

i completely disagree and was about to say the opposite!

auditorium sound >>> chicago theatre sound.

good news is there isn't really a bad seat in the house (other than the very back of the floor-level, both venues) because the sound disperses so well at both venues, especially to the balconies. both venus are < 4000 capacity but auditorium has had many more rockin shows as of late.

hard to compare without seeing the same band at both venues...but after Tool and Radiohead at Auditorium Theatre I don't think I've ever seen a Chicago Theatre show that compared to those (in terms of soud quality, not just the bands performing).

It's all seats, so there wont be any GA.

It also says on the Auditorium Theatre that ticket sets will be sold as well for both dates.

So davin, you too think the Auditorium is better? That's the one I was going to try for.

Hereís an interesting billy article (from TOCís cultural heroes segment) that may interest Chicagoans, he reveals his current feelings towards the city and its people.

TOC: As much of a creative force as you are in Pumpkins history, you’ve taken a lot of guff for lineup changes over the years. A lot of bands change lineups: members will die and be replaced, or people will be swapped out and nobody says a word. But it seems that every time you sneeze with the Pumpkins it causes some kind of consternation. Do you have a sense of why that might be?
Billy Corgan: You know, I think it’s a pretty simple thing. When the band started, two of the musicians were good musicians, and two of the musicians were okay musicians. When we found ourselves recording, the producers that we worked with said, “These other two musicians aren’t competent; why don’t you just do it?” It put me in a really awkward position. It was basically choosing the best foot forward of the band as far as a representation musically. There was also the internal idea that everyone in the band should play their parts. That’s pretty standard, there’s nothing avant-garde about that. What happened was that we kept it a secret because we didn’t wanted people to think poorly of us. But basically Jimmy and I were making the records. When it came out, it came out of the bitterness of the other two band members portraying it as something they’d been fucked over on. That turned into a thing like I was some sort of monster who wouldn’t let anybody play on the records. Where the psychology reverses–and I think to answer the question, which is not an easy question to answer, but I’ve had a lot of time to think about it–is that it’s hard for people to understand that I’d done all that. It almost becomes this kind of suspicious thing, like there must be a catch—but there isn’t a catch. Two people pretty much made all the Smashing Pumpkins music. So when we put the band back together… we consider ourselves the rightful heirs of the musical legacy. We created it. We didn’t create it alone, but we created the majority of it. But maybe it’s not even that simple.

Just out of curiosity how do you Chicagoans feel about Billy’s comments toward the people/city and the whole “working class” ideology? Do you think his comments were justifiable?
