The Handcuffs
Jun 4th, 2006 at 12:55am
 
Since the old Handcuffs thread seems to be missing, I started a new one.

I saw the Handcuffs in their first-ever Milwaukee show last night.  As expected, they were excellent!  Brad is, as you all know by now, an unbelievable drummer.  With the Handcuffs, he gets to show off a little more--(I, personally, would like to see even more showing off)--that guy is   i n c r e d i b l e !  Chloe is quite a singer, too.  They played in a really small, but nice, bar on the edge of downtown.  Although there were only about 30 people there, it was a lively and intimate setting.  My wife & I got a few chances to chat with both Brad & Chloe, and enjoyed the show immensely.

I picked up the cd at the show--two thumbs up on that, too!

If you haven't checked out their video yet.........

Cool, Brew!  I would  like to see the Handcuffs play, too.  Chloe and Brad are great people!  I'm kind of hoping they can do a Michigan gig sometime this summer...

Brew,
Glad to hear you enjoyed it! I've loved Brad's drumming since the 1st time I saw him! Smiley  He and Chloe put on an excellent show together. Smiley

LMK-- I'm going to their Chicago show on the 10th. (driving up the 9th)
Would you like to join us?  It's Chloe's birthday that weekend, too! Wink

The show was awesome! Smiley  I like their new lineup! Smiley
Brad and Chloe, as usual, were great and we helped Chloe celebrate her birthday for the 2nd year in a row.
This has become a new tradition for us!
(Next year, my brother will be graduating from Residency that same weekend!)

Their new CD is really great, so make sure you check out some of their clips on their myspace page:

By the way, they are doing an online contest for the "Last Band Standing"....
go to this website and vote for them! I think you can vote once a day... Smiley

BTW-- My friend in Chicago has heard good reviews on the megabus.com

The cost for a RT ticket from Detroit to Chicago is something like $2 - $40... Cheaper than a tank of gas! Smiley
I'm hoping to go back later this summer to see them again and to visit the summer festivals!

Solodka,
I'm finally back in town. Trying to keep off of the computer during the summer months, but look for me on the Yahoo IM--going through some backgammon withdrawal! Smiley

OH MY!  I guess I need some glasses!  Well, the photo was small!  At least it wasn't some kind of animal!  But now I know what long hair on her would look like!  It was Ellie May style pigtails in my head!  Thanks for pointing that out!  Somehow I  thought I could have been mistaken! Smiley
