9/25/92…Warrant with Babylon A.D. & Saigon Kick @ Odeum, Chicago

Blaze Fest '92 @ Odeum 9/25/92

Blaze Fest ’92 @ Odeum 9/25/92

This would be my third time seeing Warrant.  What’s funny is, I know I liked Warrant, but I really don’t remember liking them this much.  But maybe it was more about the “show” than the band.  I was excited to see Saigon Kick too.  I had just been getting into them from their new album The Lizard.  I remember this night as being rainy and the club being pretty crowded.  I know for sure I was there with my best friend.  But I am also pretty sure we had a bunch of other friends there too.  I guess that’s what I mean when I say that it was more about “the show”; it was a social event.  Since this was a general admission show, we tried to get as close to the stage as possible.  It got too crowded so somehow I ended up sitting in the VIP section right next to the stage.  I can’t remember if somebody let me in or if I just kinda walked in.  Either way, I was happy and comfortable.  I’m pretty sure I just saw Warrant from there and I saw Saigon Kick from the floor.  I could be wrong.  Saigon Kick’s set focused mostly on their newest album, but also threw in some older stuff.

  1. The Lizard

  3. All Alright
