'Ey youse,I know whatcha thinkin', yer thinkin', “Well it's about time Donnie, we're startin' ta get the shakes 'ere! Whatcha got?” What can I say?

It's rare to catch a show at the Metro in Chicago and have room to breathe and take it all in. Which made it all the more surprising when openers The Right Now took the stage to no more then 40 people.
