Last weekend, I made it down to Bloomington and back in less than two days, visited some friends, caught a great Dot Dot Dot show at the Bluebird, and got a sneak peek at some of their newest songs.
Then Tuesday, I was lucky enough to be in-studio for the Dots’ taping of their album premiere piece at the iconic JBTV in Chicago. What a great experience! Afterwards, I met up with Little Lisa and a few friends at Pequod’s, and met a wonderful new friend Crystal, and also her friend’s daughter Alish, who is known to many as the band’s “biggest little fan.”
Yesterday I headed over to the Windy City again to help out at the weekly “Party in the Park” event at the Millenium Park Grill, or as I jokingly called it, “Marty in the Park.” After another great show with the Dots, and meeting up with Crystal again, I caught the train home and the rest is history.
Only camera phones were allowed during taping, so here’s a quick look at my view of the Dots at the JBTV taping:
And a snapshot of Adam and Lisa from the Millenium Park show:
With all the luck in the world, I’ll make it back down to B-Town on the 22nd for their next stop at the bird. Otherwise, it’ll be a few weeks until my next “Team Ellipsis” activity. But July is packed full of outdoor festivals and summer shows!
Again, Dot Dot Dot’s newest EP album was just released this week! It’s called “III” and is available on iTunes right now! Follow the band on Twitter, @DotDotDotOnline, and check out their website, www.DotDotDotOnline.com for more on the Dots, and to see their summer tour schedule, then stop by a show or two or ten!
Spread the Dot love! (Around the world and back!)
