The neighborhood of Make Believe

If you hadn't heard of Make Believe -- the latest Kinsella Brothers family project (Joan of Arc, Cap'n Jazz, Owls, etc) -- you may have heard the story of that rock drummer who this past June dropped trou, exposed his junk, and wrung the sweat from his shorts all over an all-ages Christian rock crowd in Oklahoma. Didn't find pictures of the junk, but someone had their cellphone camera out for the arrest (pdf). With a December indecent-exposure court date looming (which could cost Nate Kinsella ten years in jail and mandatory registration as a sex offender), the band came to the Middle East for a little aggressive, spazzed-out, lo-fi rock. Dudes shot back Makers Mark and proudly announced that they were raking in ten times the cash they made the last time they played the Upstairs. "Where were all you guys last time?" singer Tim Kinsella mused. Two dudes up front yelled "We were here!" They might literally have been the only ones, too: Make Believe admitted to making $20 that show.

Local math-rock soundscapers Shore Leave opened up, playing with a new drummer and debuting a new song -- this one a theatrical epic by SL standards, with multi-instrumentalists Afshin adding a Sigur Ros touch.
