I tweeted earlier tonight (I hate this fucking sentence already) concerning the tabs I have open here in my nifty little browser. Because I am a blogger, it made sense to write about this. Plus, I need an excuse to close these fuckin' tabs, man. I've got a bunch of shit sitting atop. Have a gander... ** Ewan Currie's Bandcamp Dude, I've got a serious clit stiffy for this dude and his band. I've wrote about The Sheepdogs before , they've made it [...]

All's well that ends well. Sure, it rained all week, but it's nice and sunny outside with just a tiny nip in the air. Naturally, that means it is time to party down while we still can.

Some of the shows we're all abuzz over are Gypsyblood at Liar's Club , Dead Milkmen at Congress Theater and Local H at the Metro . Let's hop to it, [...]

Photo by John Sturdy Three let’s-put-on-our-orthopedic- dancing-shoes-and-groove-the-n ight-away reasons to head on over to the Viaduct Theater tonight... 1. If you’re one of those people who enjoy showcases with bands that are similar in style, yet totally different in reality, you will love this show. Chicago garage rockers Mannequin Men playfully describe themselves as ,“Four punker-types with a penchant for getting wild at house parties and spending their free time in a CCR cover band.” While it may or may not be a joke, CCR [...]

In the age of the incredibly shrinking, high-capacity mp3 player and numerous online music stores, independent artists are flocking to an unthinkable medium to get their music to the masses: the cassette tape. Chicago is at the forefront of a subculture that is hitting the mainstream after an explosion of local cassette labels in town. These labels serve as curators by catering to audiences and artists alike with eye-catching visuals and high production values that can only be rivaled by the original preferred format, vinyl, but at a fraction of the cost.
