I might be able to swing an Indiana or Ohio one in perhaps November. That's not too far away from Chicago.

Otherwise, we'd have to think about Mayish 2012 for Chicago.

Although I'm open every weekend in November except the one following Thanksgiving, May-ish would sure make planning a lot easier for most folks I would think..

What timing, I've been hoping for another Alembic meetup in Chicago, and talk has already started.

FWIW, next May would be good, though might be wise to avoid the middle of the month when G8's in town.

Well, I guess there's absolutely no reason why this won't happen, now that I've booked a gig for the 26th of May.

Perhaps we should start banging our beer bottles for a Fall 2012 or Spring 2013 gathering.

Peace, everybody..

Curently being absorbed in the wallow of self pity as we grieve the passing of our first dog . . . I think I can handle a missed opportunity of an Alembic/ Bag End gathering.

There is always another time . . .

I'd be up for something. My wife has said we need to make trip back to see family in the Fox Valley this year. Since we are going to be picking up some items that were bequeathed to her we will be driving. If we will have room on the return trip I might be able to bring a bass or two this time.

I'll be in Chicago Friday through Monday, this week- June 13-16. I no longer have an Alembic, but I still love them.

Please email me if you live in Chicago and can get together and show me around for a few hours one night or afternoon. Or jam! That would be awesome!

Thanks!

At the moment it looks like my wife and I will be making a trip back that way to visit family in August. We haven't nailed a date down but most likely would be the middle of the month.
