So I just spent the weekend in Chicago primarily to see Sunday's Iron Maiden show. While there, My friends and I also wanted to check out some Chicago style blues so we checked out the scene at Kingston Mines blues club on Saturday night. It was a great night listening to Billy Branch and his band on the main stage, and Joanna Connor on the north stage. Two words: Blown away! I was grinning and all goosebumpy while listening to the riffs that Joanna Connor was laying down, man she really brings it! I picked up a couple of CD's and made a few friends. Billy Branch's band was also bringing it hard, with some special guests who I'm sorry to say I can't remember, but were ol' time Chicago blues axe men. What a great night! If anyone is wondering where to go check out some live blues in the Windy City, Kingston Mines is a definite hot spot.
