Welcome back to the old AllThingsLucid.com!
These past two years have been nothing short of crazy. After a year of recording and post-production we finally managed to release our latest self-titled LP back in May… so where have we been? Well in the midst of that and squeezing in the occasional gig, Kostal has been working on his new project [More Killer] as well as playing in Stephen Paul Smoker, Paul has been rocking The Shams Band and at least a dozen other projects, Jeff has been working on his film festival [Illinois International Film Festival], and Miles has been touring in The Loneliest Monk and running Kilo Inc. Yep, that pretty much sums it up. So we admittedly got a bit behind on updating this thing, but we decided to put it back up and give er’ another try. So consider this site current, and please come on back for the latest All Things Lucid gossip (God knows we don’t check our myspace much… sorry).
Until next time,

The Whistler is offering a rare and special treat tonight – a holiday incentive if you will. For one night only you can completely lose your mind… for free. Yes that’s right. Lose that goddamn mind all over the place! But don’t worry, we promise we’ll keep it within the walls of 2421 N. Milwaukee. To help the process along, we’ll be filling your ears and feet with sounds only yet heard by the ghost of Christmas yet to come.
1. 9:00PM @ Whistler (2321 N Milwaukee – Logan Square)
2. Lose your mind with The Ornery Darlings
4. Lose your mind with All Things Lucid
5. Dance a lot
6. Beg ol’ Uncle Ebenezer to return your mind
7. Stop reading this silly message
All Things Lucid
The holiday season can do a cruel number on your soul. It can really dig up all those dark demons of struggle, pain, loneliness and addiction. The holiday season will throw those feelings and thoughts right back in your face without hesitation, even though you thought you beat the shit out of those demons last year. It’s an odd thing. The holiday season is a truly unforgiving season that never forgets but it is the time to forgive and forget. I guess it’s just a difference of opinion on which side you take during this annual battle.
We say, “Fight fire with fire!” with All Things Lucid during this dichotomy which is the holiday season. All those demons that the holidays can dig up on you ATL has songs for and all those good feelings that the holidays can bring back ATL has songs for those too! You can’t win battles alone so that is why we recruited Ornery Little Darlings to be our allies for our next show at The Whistler on Dec. 15th at 9pm. To add to the “good” holiday spirit we are giving you this show for FREE! So come to The Whistler on Tuesday Dec. 15th at 9pm to keep your body and soul warm!
Forget about Black Friday—All Things Lucid has the deals for you! Who wants to get up early to find deals the day after Thanksgiving anyway?
