It feels strange making this last post. It doesn't feel like it should be over so soon but with that being said, thank you for taking the time to look and read about a group and people I care so much about. Thank you Signals Midwest, Max, Steve, Loren and Jeff. Thank you for letting me put my camera in your face practically all the time and giving me the opportunity to tell your story. It was an honor and a pleasure. Love and appreciate you guys.
With all of this being said, thank you for reading and looking. I hope you enjoy the ending of this story.
From Milwaukee we had a quick breakfast and hit the road to Minneapolis.
A curious puppy and Steve meet. After a small bite of Steve's beard everyone was in awe of this dog.
The transition from Madison to Chicago was somewhat complicated. Signals Midwest had a live video session the day of the show but due to space limitations in the Signals Midwest van, I ended up with The Gunshy in their van and didn't get to meet up with the band until load in that evening at The Cobra Lounge.
It was the last show of the tour and it seemed we all mutually felt it was too soon of an ending.
Side note: The ending of the tour was a great example of what DIY means. One night could be a basement show to 10 people, a coffeehouse to students, a batting cage filled with a cheering crowd or it could be a almost sold out traditional venue with green room. It's pretty amazing.
Steve, Max and Loren put the finish the final touches of setting up before the last show of their tour in Chicago, Illinois, October 7, 2016.
Thank you again, for looking and reading. I hope you enjoyed the series of Signals Midwest on tour.
You can find the Signals Midwest on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Bandcamp.
A large thanks to The Gunshy, everyone I met, everyone who hosted us and myself and thank you for not only supporting me but supporting these bands.
See you on the next adventure.
