Mae Performs at Reggie's Rock Club
Reggie's Rock Club - Chicago, IL, USA - May 21, 2009

Fans of Mae (multi-sensory aesthetic experience) are always ecstatic to see the guys when they are back in town for a show, but on this night Mae was playing Reggie's Rock Club, a very small, old-school-looking music venue just south of the Loop in Chicago. A place that walking up to it you felt you would see stickers from bands that were around 10 years ago, tape leftover from flyers of shows 15 years ago, the smell of old stale beer that had been spilled on the floor 10,000 times, and see the haze from the cartons of cigarettes that were consumed within the confines of the brick walls. Mae wants you to experience their show with every one of your senses ablaze, and it could not have worked out any more in their favor than playing somewhere like Reggie's.

After experiencing Reggie's for the first time, I'm hoping more well-known bands decide to utilize this venue more often, as it provides one of the best atmospheres for a rock concert in the city of Chicago. The fact that Reggie's can hold less than 400 patrons, some larger bands may avoid this venue just for that reason. But bands that are wanting to give back to their fans by providing a show where they cannot be further than 30ft from their furthest admirer; more bands may choose to take this route.
