Gaper's Block Turns Six

2009gapersblockparty.jpg Our pals over at Gapers Block have a birthday coming up, so that must mean it's time for them to throw a party! They've put a little celebration together at Metro on September 4 including musical entertainment from Nikki Lynette, The Hood Internet (who, we are proud to point out, made their live debut at one of the legendary Chicagoist CTRL-ALT-ROCK parties), Blane Fonda, and Panda Riot. That is literally a line-up with a little something for everyone.

Gapers Block is also planning on bringing in a photobooth so we can totally get pictures of us making out with The Huff's legendary sideburns our girlfriend. And the best part of the whole shebang? It's free if you get there before 9:30 p.m.! (And just $6 if you get there after then.)

So belly up to the bar and buy those fine folks a birthday shot on September 4!
