Farmageddon at Elbo Room

Crowns@Elbo shot

In the spirit of test-posts, here’s another bit of lagniappe: Farmageddon live at Chicago’s Elbo Room in October of 2003, just one of the vids in the old band archive. The tune is a Bruce Bowers original,”Crowns.” I haven’t loaded the video here; watch it on YouTube here.

Bruce (hat) leads the assembly; Mark’s on bass in the shadows, Mike C1 plays keys, the other Mike C2 plays drums and I’m noodling along on the Strat. Farmageddon started in 2001 when a bunch of friends hanging at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music (www.oldtownschool.org) started regular acoustic jams. By 2003 we got drums, got electric and got loud, for better or worse… but for sure, for fun.
