anyone know anything other than it's the "windy city" of the USo'A???
on wiki, just wondering if anyone's actually visited or lived there and can give some real opinion :)
thank you oh so very much young ladies and gentlemen!
in July. great bands, great pizza, great girls is the summarisation ive had from a bisexual friend o'mine.
Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms and lots of other bands.
Also deep dish pizza and the mafia, now that the Russians have scared them out of New York.
mmmm pizza and bands sound good :)
nottingham, england :)
and i was thinking more Tortoise, Dragon City, Anathallo, Tristeza band wise :)
according to wiki the weather is pretty stable yearround...hold on...
even in january the average LOW is only minus 8 celcius (17 'F)!!!
but you're right about summer it looks nice and hot! yay!
it was freezing cold (although this is obviously from my perspective, you might not feel it so much) and rained a lot, and a lot of the time the cloud cover was so low that you couldn#t see the top of the seers tower.
however i did rather fall in love with it. the loop is absolutely stunning, and a lot of the residential neighbourhoods in the north of the city were really nice as well.
plus, the music scene was really great - in one evening, i saw islands at the metro early on and then gang gang dance at a late show across town <3
i'd love to see it when it snows.
I absolutely loved it, it's actually the place I want to move to more than any other place I've ever been. Good luck!
