Alright everybody, it’s time to dust this fucker off. Wipe all the construction dirt and stale beer residue off this blog and GIVE INFORMATION TO THE PEOPLE. Cozy up in yr favorite chair, we doin’ this.

It’s been an awesome summer so far at the Pinhook. We got a new pool table, a Ms. Pacman/Galaga machine that doesn’t crap out all the time, Tekken 2, and this terrifyingly violent game called Carnevil where you just cold blow away monsters with a gun. I think I remember playing this game at a mall arcade many years ago. My parents were most likely horrified.

All these new additions are fine, but the most awesome thing in the world is that our patio is open.  It overlooks American Tobbaco, the DPAC, the Bulls’ Stadium and, uh, the jail. On the 4th of July we had a perfect view of the fireworks, and an excellent time was had by all. We have a grill back there too.

But the MOST awesome awesome thing is simply the quality of the music we have had over the last few months, and the even more kickass lineup that this summer has in store for it. The passion and professionalism of the bands who have played here has been staggering, and we are extremely grateful. We’ve moved into full-fledged music venue mode, and we want to be THE PLACE TO PLAY.

GodDAMN, there is so much good music coming up. I Was Totally Destroying It, Hammer No More the Fingers, Architects of Feat, Three Days in Vegas, Dry Heathens, Whatever Brains, Jews and Catholics, The Sidekicks, DJ Sleazy McQueen…put all of them into your pipe and fire it up.
