The Riviera Theatre, Chicago, IL | April 30, 2015

Chicago Night 2 seems to have kicked it up a notch from the previous night. Gordy at @GordyBeTweeting live-Tweeted both shows and it seems the band wasn’t fully enamored of the audience on Night 1

Also, if you are hoping to hear “Answering Machine” at some future show, I have some bad news for you.

The printed set list was a bit sparse, plenty of room for improvising (those are Tommy’s shoe prints).

Then there was that time #paulwesterberg played #alexchilton from a tent on stage. #thereplacements
