Return of the Thax

By Scott Smith in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 3, 2006 8:47PM

Well that was quick.

Little more than a week after we reported on Thax’s burgeoning singing career, Tribune reporter 2006_11_thax.jpgKevin Pang tell us that Thax is hopping a midnight train to Chicago and returning to the city that helped make him semi-quasi-famous.

Apparently, Thax was unable to find a job or continue crashing at the recording studio he called home while living in NYC. He plans to seek employment here and presumably continue his poetry and work on his new music project. You can hear Thax’s collaborations with his friend Matt Mehlan on the duo’s MySpace page.

As we reported earlier, Mehlan’s band Skeletons and the Girl-Faced Boys are set for a free show with Headlights at Empty Bottle on November 20. Mehlan and Thax’s project Chicken and the Chick Flicks are scheduled for an early 6 p.m. show at Beat Kitchen that same evening, according to their MySpace page.
