Back In The (USA, Saddle, USSR)

Choose your own title. It really doesn't matter. In fact, life is fairly meaningless at this point. On a brighter note, Eleventh Dream Day is still an amazing band. I had the pleasure of seeing them perform a killer set at the Empty Bottle in Chicago last Thursday night. They followed this with an approximately 40-minute in-store appearance at Tower Records on Saturday afternoon. They were incredible again at Tower, and WAY too loud for the setting...which was perfect. Their latest album is Zeroes and Ones, and it is excellent.

Rick Rizzo, the lead singer and lead guitarist, is the embodiment of rock and roll. He's an intensely honest and excellent performer, without a pretentious bone in his body. Unbelievable.
