Last nights show was a great one!  I’m proud of the Tramps, we put some work in recently and it paid off last night.  Its a great feeling being on stage and knowing you’ve got 5 musicians around you that are confident in what they’re doing.  As band leader, I don’t (more…)

Thoughts on the Empty Bottle Show…

January 28th, Friday is gonna be a hot show for all sorts of good reasons.  Empty Bottle is one of Chicago’s premier joints to see up and coming bands perform, and Antony Ablan and the Tramps is headlining.  Oooeee oooeee.  So we put together an exciting show for our friends.  We’re going to play for you some songs that will be on our upcoming 7″ Vinyl release, The Thorn (Cry Baby), as well as I’ve Got Soul, and The Warrior.  Cry Baby has been in our rehearsal studio wearing all sorts of different clothes, finding what works best for it.  Just two nights ago it became clear how the song should feel and sound, and now we’re rehearsing to bring it to life for you guys.  We’ll play songs off our EP, and some other songs yet to be recorded.  I’m thrilled to get on that stage with these tunes and my band!  We start at midnight.

In addition to that good stuff, we’ve got the ever-creative and completely captivating burlesque dancers Honey B. Combe performing, expect to see them around 11:45.  You’ll stare, laugh, and drool all at the same time–yes, it is possible… and likely.

Before Honey B. we’ve got Chicago’s Seafarer.  They’re making a name and earning respect of fans and critics alike.  Great music from these guys, check them out at myspace.com/seafarerchicago. Expect them on around 11.

Opening the night at 10pm is the funky groove of Old Shoe… yeah, ’cause they’re that funky.  Dig ‘em, myspace.com/oldshoeband

Join us!  Oh yes, and look above to get free tickets for the show, a little treat for our friends.
