Summer Girlfriends

At the beginning of July a strange email popped up in Canadian Girlfriends' inbox. It was from another Chicago band called My Canadian Girlfriend. We were aware that they existed, but from looking at their website (which I am definitely not about to link to) we thought it was a pretty safe bet that there would be no problem with similar names. Of course, when you assume you make an ass out of you and me. We were politely asked to change our name because they felt "people are likely to be confused by our respective names." However, we felt there would be no confusion and replied that we were not going to change it.

Fast forward a week and we get another awesome email in our inbox - a cease and desist from their lawyer! We discussed it democratically and decided that fighting these douche canoes was not worth our time or money. The full report can be found here So now I present to you Summer Girlfriends go like us!!!

The Runnies

Friday night we (we being Nikita, Caitlin, Sara, Nicole, and I) played a show at Crown Liquors. It was our last show as Canadian Girlfriends...but I'll touch on that another time.

This blog post is only to highlight how amazing 2 things are

1) Nathan's and my awesome knuckle tattoos

2) Mary's voice


I absolutely LOVE Outer Minds so when The Runnies agreed to play with us I was totally stoked. Listen to these bands, trust me, soon you'll want Mary singing you lullabies every night before you fall asleep.

Print Media

Last weekend a friend of mine, who works at The Reader, asked me to take some photos of my weekend and do a little write up. Like a blog post for the paper. That used to have a name right? An Article?
Well here it is!!
Make sure to read the comments section - somehow my innocuous little musings have created an uproar. Awesome!

Monday night was the final Loose Dudes show - this is the only picture I've seen surface on facebook, but I know there is footage of the entire thing. I will post it as soon as it is available, so we can all relieve the fucking glory that was that night.

RIP Loose Dudes - you were my favourite band of 2010-2011
