• In the Wintertime

So we had our first snow. We can’t ignore it any longer: winter is coming. Bummer, right? Whenever the season hits, I think of the time I saw Johnny Ill Band in a tiny basement in Logan Square. It was right about this time of year, in either 2008 or 2009. The Detroit-based jangly garage band played today’s 12 O’Clock Track, “In the Wintertime,” a catchy pop number whose lyrics come into my mind when I think of how much winter sucks, which is something that I think most midwesterners can relate to. Except the line about wishing you lived in Arizona. Really, guys? Ew.
