Chips For The Poor’s adventures in Chicago take them for a ride on the cinema’s famous ‘L’ train and to TV’s famous kids’ dance party Chic-a-go-go. Then an aeroplane takes them South, where they contemplate Texas from the sky. Arriving, still dressed for winter in the perennial summer of the Lone Star State, the band take to the streets of Austin for South By Southwest, the world’s biggest music festival (2,000 acts play on average 5 gigs each).
Hear their further cassette diaries as they wander the streets encountering bands, drunks and drunk bands, and play one burrito bar, a back garden and two car parks, one of which is a benefit for homeless cats.
Will they live the rock’n’roll dream and finally get given a free drink? Where is this free barbecue they’d heard so much about? Will they get out alive or fry on the chair? Tune in to find out…
