it's time for another 'good idea, bad idea'

good idea: entering a ticket giveaway contest on a whim. chicagoist held a write-in contest for the touch and go records 25th anniversary/hideout 10th annual block party, and i fucking won. now i don't have to say 'well my mom thinks i'm a winner' anymore. i'm one of three who gets a three-day pass to the whole shebang. more black heart procession, and my new best friend, pinback. (check them out, go, nownownow. they're the reason i won the flippin' contest.) plus some more acts i've probably heard of at some point. that's all i care about right now, but now i gots some serious research to do...

bad idea: watching 'session 9' right before bed. what the fuck was i thinking?? when am i gonna fucking learn??

*insert happy dance*

now, the perpetual problem is, i need someone to go with. c'mon, take pity for one weekend, anybody.

They've got quite a list of bands. I'm familiar with several, need a refresher on others, need some total research on a few too. Looking forward to the 3 days!

are you going with anyone? ?

no :( i so, so want to.. i've never even been to the hideout or done any more research.. i must bone up (hard!) on these bands, but that won't make a 'date' magically appear..
