Hair Police!

It was great to see Hair Police, who were in town last night, at the Empty Bottle. It has been over a year since their last Chicago show, when Rita, Bruce, and I played with them at The Mopery. They played a different sort of set, with Robert and Trevor setting the tone with synth, electronics, and cold stares through aviator sunglasses. Connelly was at his most physical and unhinged best, crawling across the stage on his hands and knees, dragging his guitar and microphone along with him. Excellent!
