Encapsulating the energetic sensations of an unforgettable night can be quite the feat. The latest entry for our “Tell Us Your Story” contest may prove that this challenge has been met in triumph. The contestant’s husband has enjoyed the jangle punk band, The Dead Milkmen, since his high school days. As a matter of fact, her fella even had Joe Jack Talcum, one of the band’s members, play a show in his home. But I digress! The customer and her husband knew they couldn’t miss the band’s first tour in over 15 years. So off to Logan Square’s Congress Theater they went! Thirty seconds into their set, however, our protagonist lost his spectacles to the ever growing, ever happy mosh pit. After an exhilarating set, albeit blurry, the glasses were found in multiple pieces amidst crushed plastic cups, empty beer cans, car keys and other debris.
Will this be one of our 5 winners? Stay tuned to see! -Nichole
