No One Got Hurt
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release
On September 12th, 2009, one of those improbably nice late summer days Chicagoans hold onto as a comfort memory during the lengthy winter bleakness, the Hideout Block Party hosted Bloodshot Records' 15th Anniversary celebration. We soaked in the day with loads of old friends, allies, associates and fans from at least 28 states and 4 countries. No tents or port-a-johns caught fire or tipped over, no belt sanders flew into the gathered throngs; there were no lost children, knife fights, fist fights, food fights, thunderstorms, snowstorms, shitstorms or beer shortages (despite your best efforts); the stage didn't collapse, the sound system didn't rebel, the bands all showed up and hit the stage at more or less the right times and played the way we love.
The Hideout has been like our clubhouse over the years, and that day we had over 4000 members.
And no one got hurt.
