mewithoutYou @ X-Ray Arcade

mewithoutYou - X-Ray Arcade, Cudahy WI on January 10, 2022 - Brother Sister 15 and 16 Year Anniversary Tour

2022 also starting with back-to-back winter concerts. Also again it’s mewithoutYou (setlist here). Tonight it’s in Cudahy, Wisconsin at the X-Ray Arcade which itself is an interesting place that looks like a tiny dive from outside but has a relatively large music area inside that I didn’t expect. Crowd was packed shoulder-to-shoulder and while it’s … Read more

mewithoutYou @ Lincoln Hall

mewithoutYou - Lincoln Hall, Chicago IL on January 9, 2022 - Brother Sister 15 and 16 Year Anniversary Tour

2022 getting started with some winter concert action at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, Illinois to see mewithoutYou. I bought the tickets back in October when the tour was announced being optimistic that COVID-19 wouldn’t ruin it and thankfully, other than the opener Unwed Sailor dropping off due to positive tests, the show went on (mostly) … Read more

mewithoutYou @ DREAMSTAGE

mewithoutYou - DREAMSTAGE show "Brother, Sister 15 Year Anniversary

The COVID-19 pandemic has presended many challenges in our lives the past several years. Surprisingly my favorite band mewithoutYou had two nights of “virtual” concerts in August 2021 at a time when normal concerts weren’t really possible in most places. I have to say I was skeptical that a live concert-like feeling could be streamed … Read more

F150 Photoshoot 2020

1994 F-150 at Northside Wheel Alignment

Had an impromptu photo-shoot with our old family truck, the 1994 F-150. Purchased by my grandfather (Guy) way back when and has barely changed in 25+ years. Odometer is somewhere around 53k original miles. I’ve been doing some maintenance work on the cooling system and other original items that need refreshing. Decided to give it … Read more

Concord Music Hall - mewithoutYou

Was able to see my favorite band mewithoutYou again January 2020 at Concord Music Hall in Chicago, IL during Thrice’s 15 year anniversary tour for the album “Vheissu”. Venue has a no camera policy so everything was taken in potato vision from my iPhone 8. Best photo was before the show during sound checks when … Read more

Safari Shoot @ West Allis Bowmen

Safari Shoot @ West Allis Bowmen - Tiger target

My friend Erin twisted my arm into shooting the Safari Shoot at West Allis Bowmen and I’m glad she did. This is a great event for archers of all ages with some extremely unique and fun targets. How unique, you ask? See exhibit A: the hippo-bear-dog-man-bear-pig? Lots of more realistic animal targets but maybe one … Read more

2019 Root River Paddle Challenge

2019 Root River Paddle Challenge

Picked up a kayak this year to push further into my Wisconsin waterfall search.  For my inaugural paddle I had some friends convince me to join the Root River Paddle Challenge.  Thanks to high water levels this was a pretty easy 6.5 mile float even for a noob like me.  Only took video using my … Read more

mewithoutYou @ The House Cafe

The House Cafe in Dekalb, Illinois

Scored tickets to see one of my favorite bands down at The House Cafe in Dekalb, Illinois. Teddy Roberts and The Mouths were the opening act.  Kind of a bluegrass/country vibe. Tigers Jaw closed the show.  They are good but not quite my style (emo/pop punk). Right in the middle was mewithoutYou.  Sorry my photos … Read more

Foo Fighters @ Fiserv Forum

Foo Fighters - Concrete and Gold Tour

Friends of mine scored tickets for the Foo Fighters latest Concrete and Gold tour in Milwaukee at the new Fiserv Forum.  Gotta say I didn’t expect to see such an impressive show – nearly 3 hours long and one of the best light displays I’ve ever seen.  Setlist can be seen here. Don’t forget to … Read more

Packers vs. Bears @ Lambeau Field

Lambeau Field - National Anthem

Lambeau Field.  The Frozen Tundra.  September 9th.  Packers 100th Season opener versus the Chicago football Bears.  Point the way Curly! “Not so fast!” says Coach Lombardi‘s stern gaze.  Made a stop at the Atrium & Packers Pro Shop for merch and had lunch at Kroll’s West (possibly the best cheese curds in Wisconsin?). Stopped at … Read more
