Liberation Tourology with ALO #12

We have always had a good crowd in Chicago and tonight was no different. Thing about Chicago is that it’s sort of loud and boisterous. The people are that way, too. They are in your face, but they mean well. But what I’m trippin’ on is that, the last two times I’ve played in Chicago, somebody has grabbed my butt as I left the stage.

ALO Tour Diary #12We have always had a good crowd in Chicago and tonight was no different. Thing about Chicago is that it’s sort of loud and boisterous. The people are that way, too. They are in your face, but they mean well. But what I’m trippin’ on is that, the last two times I’ve played in Chicago, somebody has grabbed my butt as I left the stage.

Sometimes you gotta go through the crowd to get backstage. I’ve played Chicago twice so far this year. The first time was with Jackie Greene at a classy place called Space and then this night with ALO. At both venues the band had to walk through the crowd and both times my cheeks have been violated. Was it the same person? Does Chicago have a problem with reverse sexual harassment? What up with you ladies?

I must say having it happen does make me feel for women. It’s always shocking and it always makes me want to flee the scene. It’s sort of like a slap in the face but it’s about as funny as a slap in the face can be. Do guys still grab girls’ butts? It seems like such an innocent and antiquated way of having a naughty little laugh. Well, it’s come full circle. Female to male ass grabbing is at epidemic levels in the windy city. Maybe next time a Chicagonian lass decides to pump my buns I’ll BREAK wind in honor of her fine city.

Keep up with all things Brogan, ALO or otherwise, at his official website.

Throughout 2010, ALO drummer Dave Brogan will regale us with tales from the road as Animal Liberation Orchestra travel around behind their sweet new album Man of the World, both as headliners and as primary support for Jack Johnson’s summer/fall tour.

  1. this from a lass I know who attended the show…

    “That is hysterical! Someone should let him know that, yes, women’s asses get grabbed constantly still so he needs to quit his whining :) lol”

    but are you sure it wasn’t a dude?
