April 10, 2011 The Aragon Ballroom
Uptown Neighborhood, Chicago, IL
If you are around my age, sliding downhill toward that dirt nap, you remember this shit hole as the Aragon Brawlroom. Hell, I almost died there one night during a Motorhead / Ozzy Osborne concert. This place has been renovated and it is beautiful now. The concert hall on the second floor is designed to look like a Spanish Courtyard and the owners have really cleaned the place up. I've seen some incredible shows here over the years. Smashing Pumpkins, Everclear, Kings of Leon, the Black Crowes and the Replacements are a few that come to mind.
