When the Wedding Present announced a few months ago that they were planning a North American tour for 2006, I feared that they would hit Chicago shortly after my new baby is born and I'd have to miss them again. But the new year is off to a great start: they are scheduled to play the Double Door on March 12, almost two weeks before my due date. Considering that I made it to the Fall and the Strokes three weeks before my due date with my first child and Fountains of Wayne three days before, I'll certainly buy advance tickets and hope the baby doesn't arrive early.
However, I'll hold off on the Wedding Present baby t-shirt for the new
kid since my son has never had a strong reaction to the band's CDs, not
the way he has with the Ramones, which warranted the purchase of his Ramones shirt.
