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 ( started regular acoustic jams. By 2003 we got drums, got electric and got loud, for better or worse… but for sure, for fun.
