PLEBA convention in Chicago!!!

Okay, PLEBA gals (and guys)! We on chat have been talking and decided it was high time to have a PLEBA convention. And what better place for a convention than a city U2 loves, right in the middle of the USA? In fact, Bono once said that they wanted to play there every Monday night! (This was before he said it in at least 2 other cities. Shut up.)

Gina (Hallelujah Here She Comes) lives in Chicago, and I live very close to it. So I (and probably Gina) would be happy to scope out locations, try to organize stuff, etc. But we need to know who wants to come!

Right now we are thinking that July, perhaps late July, would work best for a variety of reasons. (For instance, no school for PLEBA students.) Depending on how many people want to come, we can look at what kind of places we might want to use for a get-together. Field trips will definitely be involved.

For instance, I know of a museum that may be able to put up a U2 exhibit for us! We can go to the Shedd Aquarium, because it rocks, although it has absolutely nothing to do with U2! We could go to the United Center and form a GA line to freak out security! Extreme merriment will ensue, no matter what! Chicago won't know what hit it, ladies.

Okay, we really want to make this happen. But we need feedback. So, discuss please!


Bono: Hey PLEBA people! We're here posing on stage in Chicago, and we really think you should all come visit us here!

Edge: Um, Bono ... we probably won't be there...

Bono: Shut up. We're gonna play here every Monday night!

Larry: All of those PLEBA ladies in one place ... just knowing they're all congregating makes me a bit nervous.

Adam: I want to see how many of them have my pants.

Oh sugar, don't you cry
Oh child, wipe the tears from your eyes
You know I need you to be strong
And the day is as dark as the night is long
Feel like trash, you make me feel clean
I'm in the black, can't see or be seen

Thats my Birthday! (July 31 anyway) And I can try to get Danno's elevation band there that week--they play there alot! They're good too! Just set a date and a hotel or place and I'll clear my U2002 calendar! (This may be scary...all those Pleba girls in one place at once!) Look out Chicago!

I'm so there! Which I said in chat, but YEAH.
if we get all of PLEBA in one room, I think innuendo would not streak through the room, it would be put on a pedestal and hoisted high for all to see...

You know, I live near Chicago, about 60 miles away. But for summer I may be in Champaign. But I'd love to go.

I live not very far from Chicago, but I'm taking some classes this summer so I can graduate sooner, and I have other plans.

It's a good idea though.

I live about 7 hours away, and my parents are going there with me this summer.. not sure about the date.. but I can't go Damn. Be sure to go to the Chicago Peace Museum so you can see Bono's poem there

"You must not look down on someone just 'cos they are 14 years old. When I was that age I listened to the music of John Lennon and it changed my way of seeing things, so I'm just glad that 14 year olds are coming to see U2 rather than group X." - Bono, 1988

Super yay! Keep the responses coming, everyone. All y'all who don't live near Chicago ... this could be a great excuse for a trip! Discoboos, Elevation Air, pick your mode of transport.

And I would LOVE to plan it for sometime when Elevation was doing a show! I've been wanting to go see them ever since their first gig in Chicago (although I did talk to Danno on the phone afterward courtesy of Gina )

Marina, I don't think anybody would object to kidnapped band members. That way, not only innuendo, but also Adam could streak through the room.

SO?????? You don't live anywhere near Vegas or Slane but that didn't stop you from hauling your ass there to see U2, now did it?

I don't imagine that this little gathering will be QUITE as big of a draw as our boys performing, but c'mon! You could take a little vacation from Pantsburg to come visit us!

Seriously, if you can't, you can't. But it would be LOVELY to see you.
