From the learn-something-new-every-day department:
The origin of the name "Blind Pig" stems from the prohibition days in Chicago. A "Blind Pig" was a cop who was paid not to see the speak-easy’s or illegal drinking places.
Which makes the fact that the Shampoo-Banana club of that name changed names to "Coppers" all the more amusing.
Is it bad that I actually lost track of the number of times I saw The Moon Seven Times play there?
Huh. Decent info about 'em at MSN. Who'd'a thunk it?
And, as always, The Ectophiles' Guide is your friend. Except to your wallet.
And remind me to check recent Ecto archives posts to see who else in Chi will be going to the show. . . fuck. Tomorrow.
Guess I'm taping "Angel," then.
