14. “After the Last Midtown Show” – The Academy Is…
A list of songs detailing the highlights of my year would be incomplete without a song representing the trip Amanda and I took to Chicago in February to see The Academy Is… play a special show. That trip was by far one of the best of the year. We discovered several great local Chicago venues (Double Door, The Metro, Maryters), got to see one of my fave Chicago based bands, Bottle of Justus, and discovered a new Chicago band, Surrender Dorothy. Plus, of course, The Academy Is… put on a fantastic show followed by a very entertaining afterparty at Angels and Kings.
