November 3, 2013. Longtime friends Five Eight left Athens, Georgia this weekend for shows in the Midwest. I caught up with them in Chicago at the LiveWire Lounge, a venue that my bands also play on occasion. It was fantastic to see them play again, as it's been several years since they were touring frequently enough for me to catch them on a regular basis. The set, and their visit, were too short to feel I've caught up with them, and with Patrick in particular, a friend of mine since high school. They're such a good band. For those that don't know them, please look them up.
