Milestones: Midwest Pt 2

Monday, August 2nd, 2010


Our earlier post about the Midwest harkened back to the earliest days of Galapagos4 road life. Here, in the second installment of that series, we take a look at the crew’s maiden voyages to Iowa CIty, Champaign-Urbana, and Milwaukee.

Why is this considered a milestone? For one, we are all from the Midwest. Put simply, to perform in these nearby cities was to perform for our own kind, and hopefully to people that would understand us. And secondly, I want to stress that these were the first “out-of-town” shows that anyone had ever asked us to play, outside of Chicago, ever. I’m not going to lie – we were pretty stoked about going to these places, and why not? It was all uncharted territory as far as we were concerned. During those early days of us trying to find our first outlets for expression, in our attempt to forge an identity for ourselves and our label, these Midwestern cities were there for us.

Milestones: Chi-Rocks ’04 & Civil Service Release Party

Saturday, August 15th, 2009


From now until the end of the year, in continuation with our 10th Anniversary, we’ll be posting up pics from shows past. So, here are some photos scavenged from two important events from 2004: The Chicago Rocks festival at the Metro, and the Typical Cats Civil Service Release Party at Logan Square Auditorium.

Photo credits and much thanks go to Jam One for the Civil Service photos and 800LbGorillas for the Chi-Rocks photos.
