Until then, we’re here for you. Check it:
Then, Friday night…
Tailgaters is gonna keep the TV’s on for the third period of the Blackhawks game so you can decide if you wanna watch dudes chasing a little puck around or booties bouncin’.
Good Friday?! Heaaal naw. Let’s make it a GREAT Friday – starting with our appearance on the WGN Morning News! We’re going to be live at the Cubby Bear at from 7am-9:30am, promoting our show Saturday night at the Cubby Bear. This ain’t just a Cubby show doe. It’s the 107th annual “Next Year Day” bash – a party that celebrates over a century of the Cubs’ inability to get the job done. Next Year Day is also a fundraising event for Avanse, a Chicago-based charity dedicated to changing the lives of Latin American street kids so a portion of your $10 ticket goes to them. Oh yeah, and Opening Day at Wrigley is Sunday so Wrigleyville is gonna be a shitshow all weekend!
But before we rock Wrigley’s sign off the park Saturday, we’re at 115 Bourbon St. Friday night!
Oh, is everyone you know doing suh’in’ big for spring break? Yeah, well let em have their cabanas and boat drinks while we hook you up with free pulls of Boone’s Farm at these fine drinking establishments:
Then Saturday, at Blue Chip Casino, get there early (we’ve been told to suggest by 9:30) for the best chance of getting in because there are two, sold out “Thunder From Down Under” shows at tha ‘Chip that night which means there will be (listen up fellas) an extra 3000 ladies all up in the place. Our show’s gonna be slammed yo!
“Next Year Day”?! Yeah, that’s what Cubs fans have said every year for the past 107 years – “Wait’ll next year!”
Well next year is now here. “Next Year Day” has become the north side’s annual celebration on the eve of Opening Day – the celebration of false hopes, broken promises, unfulfilled dreams, vomiting in Wrigleyville alleys…you know the drill.
Anyway, theheckler.com has as least figured out a way to throw a great party and one that benefits a charity too. Here’s the skinny:
The 107th Annual Next Year Day will serve as the kick-off celebration for the Chicago Cubs opening day by ringing in the 2015 season with the biggest party of the year. Commemorating Chicago’s unconditional love and support for their iconic team, the event is hosted by The Heckler. The event will feature a live performance by Too White Crew.
Contest will include “Pin the JumboTron in front of the Rooftop,” drunk Harry Caray Impression, “Jackie Robinson West Eligibility Contest” honoring the guest who traveled the farthest to get there, “Javy Baez ‘Strike Out With The Ladies’ worst pick-up line competition” and much, much more. Pre-purchase your spot on the guest list to beat the lines and get a $10 coupon for TheHecklerStore.com. Tickets can be purchased at: NextYearDay.com
A portion of proceeds will benefit AvanseOrg, a Chicago-based charity dedicated to changing the lives of street kids.
And just for good measure, here’s a video of Too White Crew’s C-note & Woodsy Fresh, along with a couple of their homies singing the National Anthem at Wrigley back in tha day…
It’s now 5 days after our show at Crusens in Peoria, which means all motor skills have finally returned to normal. Almost. Geesh.
OK so, yeah, we’ve got a couple extra dope shows ahead of us this weekend. Friday, we’re back at NIU for the only time this semester. It’s always extra speshial for half of our band too, cuz C-note, Woodsy Fresh and Cornbread are all Huskies, so it’s our own little homecoming. Plus, beer nuggets. NIU, you know what I’m talkin’ bout. We hit at Rosy’s Roadhouse at 10:00.
Saturday we’re at HOME Bar in Arlington Heights. Even if 1000 people bum rush this room, you can still find a place to swing a cat so if you wanna shake your money maker at a TWC show, this is the place to do it without accidentally bumpin’ uglies with your neighbor.
Now here’s a lil suhin’ suhin to put in your pipe. It’s our sound engineer Sam On It, proving why you’ll be seeing more of him on the mic at TWC shows. Oh yeah, and we’re bonusing a P.Tugz freestyle at the end. Special credit to T-Wreckx on the guitar. And Woodsy Fresh for a most excellent cameo.
There’s alotta shit going on at 115 Bourbon Street this Friday but the phat beats will be coming from the new front stage after the Blackhawks game. If you wanna roam around doe, the country room is having “Crossover Night” with Hillbilly Rockstarz and Libido Funk Circus. And in the Big Room, they’re having live MMA fighting. Basically, a lil suhin suhin fer erryone.
