Slant 6 – What Kind Of Monster Are You?
Unfortunately my head is prominently featured in the bottom left of this entire clip. My roommate and I saw the listing for Slant 6 and Prozac Memory at Fireside Bowl. Being big fans of both bands there was no way we were going to miss it, so we hopped in the car around noon and drove 6 1/2 hours from Minneapolis to Chicago for this show. Prozac Memory canceled, but they were replaced on the bill with The Make*Up. This was the first of many times seeing The Make*Up (the only time without Michelle) and my last time seeing Slant 6. Car vs. Driver and I believe Cap’n Jazz rounded out the bill. Around midnight after the show was done, we hopped back in the car and drove another 6 1/2 hours home. We got home about sunrise and I remember that the Evergreen LP and Clikatat demo being played insanely loud was the only thing that kept us awake during the long drive home.
