Southwest Flies to Chicago, Yes?

Some three hours after I moved Black Diamond Heavies up to the top row of my top friends, right next to Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, on MySpace and sent a note asking what time they're going on at Springwater this Friday, I got a note back informing they've snagged the opening gigs for the Seeds Chicago shows.

I plug these guys, not just because their blues is messy the way I like it (uh-huh uh-huh) but because they're busting their asses to get it out in front of people. How many cool bands can anyone name that will play Temple Bar in Dublin, and barbecue joints in the Southern US?

Anyway, that's great news for BDHs and their fans, and anyone who's going to be at those Chicago shows.

Absolutely worth the trip from any distance to see the Black Diamond Heavies.

I don't know if I can make it up there - I just bought a new camera. But I should definitely be using it at Springwater this Friday. Once all the right stars are in alignment, I'm going to hassle TPTB to let me have them come in on air (if they will).
