The SLOAN XX CREW purple satin jackets arrived at the venue and the crew were finally able to make sense of their head to toe yellow ensemble. To be clear, these outfits are a crew initiative. It was a great surprise to us and they look upstagingly amazing, although I am sure that we are going to have to pay for them in the end. The show in Chicago was great. I don’t know if it was the satin jackets or the fact that we were that much more rehearsed or the fact that there was not a tornado that night. Admittedly, the Cleveland show had been a little sleepy and was perhaps not the best place to take stock and ask ourselves why we’re still doing this. Chicago made it all seem worthwhile. We shortened our set after Cleveland but we could have played longer in Chicago as we could feel we had the audience's interest. There is something to be said for leaving them wanting more. We would like to come back soon and have people see that show too. Thank-you Chicago for your enthusiasm!
