For those of you that don’t know (because I don’t often tackle topics on here that aren’t music related), I’m a huge fan of Louis C.K. To those that already love the man, this seems like a no brainer. But believe it or not, there are lots of people out there that don’t care for the guy or his brilliantly subversive show Louie. I’m sure Louie has plenty of superfans out there that see him do stand-up every time he comes through town or make sure to see/buy everything he attaches his name to. Don’t quite lump me in with that group…yet. I watch his show religiously, I own the DVDs and I’ve seen almost all his TV stand-up specials. Yet I’ve never seen him perform live in person. The worst part is that I don’t know why that is. He’s been through Chicago a few times in the last few years, and I’ve never even thought about buying a ticket until this new tour. I do feel it’s special though that he’s decided to take ticketing into his own hands to shut down gigantic service fees and scalpers selling things at an inflated price. Much like some of his shows, which are available for download at a very cheap $5, he’s doing everything he can to make his comedy affordable to the general public. That’s extremely admirable, in my opinion. So I felt like now more than ever was the time to see him in person. The show is tomorrow, and I’m remarkably excited. If you’re like me and want to see Louis C.K. when he comes through your town, check here for tour dates. Now let’s do today’s Pick Your Poison. Highlights today include tracks from Angel Haze, The Curious Mystery, Loveskills, Thieves Like Us and Wires Under Tension. There’s also a great new Mister Lies track streaming in the Soundcloud section if you’re so inclined.
