Chicago’s new Airbnb is a music lover’s dream!

I recently had some friends in town, and unable to accommodate everyone in my small apartment, I decided to rent an Airbnb for a couple of nights so everyone could still stay together under one roof.

Chevelle at the House of Blues

On the 18th, the alt-metal band Chevelle played at the House of Blues in Chicago, and words can’t describe just how cool this show was (but I’ll try my best)!

Hailing from Vermont, the guys of Crypitus bring you an infusion of different metal genres with undertones and inspiration from jazz and punk.

A night with Overcoats

The New York duo of Overcoats swept through Chicago last week and left fans in awe. Having not seen the band before and having released YOUNG less than a year ago, I was curious to see how strong their fan base was in Chicago. I quickly received my answer as the crowd started dancing within…
