empty bottle

from jay reatard, flameshovel records posted in music by corporate_sunshine

The Empty Bottle is a nightclub and concert venue in Chicago's Ukrainian Village neighborhood. Opened in 1992, it caters to the indie and eclectic music crowd and has an adjoining restaurant named Bite.

Above the Empty Bottle are the headquarters of Flameshovel Records.

At one point, Jay Reatard pulled the disco ball down off the ceiling here and bounced it off somebody's head. The owner charged him $150 for it. Eventually, the owner said he would pay him an extra $150 if he would play the venue again. Sometimes it pays to be an a**hole.

He recounts this anecdote in the bio-documentary Better Than Something.
