Stellar! Lucky Boys Confusion at Bottom Lounge (November 5, 2021)

Lucky Boys Confusion stopped doing Songs From a Scene 10 years ago. But now they are bringing it back. When they were just getting started, they found it very difficult to book any shows, even as opener. So they promised themselves that if they ever reached a point where they could help other bands by giving them opening slots, they would do just that. And so, Songs From a Scene was born. Tonight’s openers are The Dog and Everything, The Gelheads, and Til Morning.

They start with “City Lights” and instantly the party is started. One of the lines took on a new poignant meaning post pandemic:  “Feels like this episode should end, and I miss my friends.” Another great moment is the slow build to the climax of the lyric:  “I can’t breathe this Midwest air tonight, oh ya!” Everyone is singing along is so happy to be out again seeing live music.

Next up is the fun and catchy “Atari”. “I don’t want to stand here and say I’m sorry, I just want to drink beer and play Atari!” The joy from this song is infectious as everyone has a huge smile on their face.

Later on they play, “Not About Debra”. This song has one of the best riffs ever. It’s so smooth and fits perfectly in this song.

Every single song they play tonight is stellar. This band has been going strong for 24 years and will be a staple of the Chicago music scene for many years to come.

Stubhy Pandav also has a new project called Mr. Ms. & the Infusions. The name is a nod to his MS diagnosis. Check out the first single, “Hallelujah”.
