Johnny D's closed in March of this year, unfortunately. The owner decided it was time to pursue other interests. I made it to the final free-for-all celebration to help close the place out. We drank the place dry (literally.) They had a brass band play for free with a New Orleans style funeral march out of the venue and through Davis Square for the finale.
R.I.P. to one of my top 10 all-time favorite venues.

I wouldn't be surprised if we saw some of the same shows at a few of those venues.

My only experience with the Tokyo Dome is through New Japan Pro Wrestling, and I still don't understand how they can fit that many people in a building and still have one of the quietest crowds ever. It's a culture thing, I've been told, but it still blows me away.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised either. That's a bummer about Johnny D's. When I was looking up the exact names of some of these places, there were a lot that had closed—one of my Chicago ones was actually demolished. lol, and so was the Garden of course.

So, out of curiousity since it's your only Chicago venue, who did you see at the Metro?

I only saw one show there by a Chicago band called "Rights of the Accused." Didn't know anything about them but I was visiting Chicago with a friend and we just decided to go to a show one night and they happened to be playing there. I'm pretty sure there was an opening act (or maybe 2) but I rarely remember the names of openers unless they leave a lasting impression on me and they obviously didn't. And Rights of the Accused probably would've been forgotten in the back of my mind but I was liquored up enough to buy a band T-shirt after the show which I still have.

I've got the platinum version of Speak English or Die (it went platinum over a decade ago btw) and there's an entire show from Japan as bonus tracks. Don't remember the audience being particularly quiet. I'd be hella curious how a metal or hardcore show would go down in Japan. Would they be quiet, or would they take the chance to give their cultural stereotype the finger and draw and quarter some poor bastard in the pit?

The only show I've ever seen in Chicago was The Fall at Logan Square Auditorium in 2006. The story I've heard is that the place was a little used banquet hall but at some point someone got the idea to have concerts there. I can't say the sound was all that good but The Fall were my favorite band at the time so I didn't complain. It was a fun evening. A friend of mine (who also lives in the Cincinnati area) and I arranged a get together prior to the show at a nearby bar for Fall fans who made the trip from other cities, as well as fans from the Chicago area.
