A little bitta that Bayonne magic!

Bayonne (Roger Sellers) helped Chicagoans usher in a weekend of bizarre weather last Friday at Schubas Tavern. I had seen Bayonne a few years ago at a Pitchfork aftershow, and was keen on seeing what he was up to these days. As I expected, he did not disappoint! Bayonne’s eccentric mind came to life in…

Toni Romiti at Subterranean

My first time going to Subterranean in Chicago was a great experience because of Sunday night’s performance, with Toni Romiti and opening performances by Queen Key and Flex. Chicago native Toni Romiti brings her youthful energy to the stage. The young artist loves to entertain, which explains her success on social media. By posting clips…

Bust out your dancing shoes

What better way to kick off Summer 2018 than dancing with your friends in one of Chicago’s most scenic venues while jamming to some soul-soaring music?! This past Thursday, The Head and the Heart and Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats co-headlined a sold out night of frivolity at Northerly Island. The weather was perfect,…

Gang of Youths breathes life back into Chicago

Did you hear the news? Going to concerts not only helps improve your mental health, but can help you live longer! While I’m sure this doesn’t come as a shock to those of us who spend our free time at Chicago venues, I feel like my friends and family have a better understanding of why…

New single by Weesp

Although Weesp’s new single “Not Over” was just released a few weeks ago, it has already been seen on YouTube over 100,000 times by fans eager to hear more from the band. The song deals with the endless struggle between light and darkness that lives in all of us. In the end, the band preaches…

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. Since I clearly consider my neighborhood to be the best, I found one nearby unlike any other I’ve seen!…

Chevelle @ House of Blues 12/17-12/18

The Illinois natives of Chevelle are playing the House of Blues two nights this upcoming week in support of their 2016 release, The North Corridor. Given that they are from the area and that the two Chicago shows will close their touring for the year, so they’re bound to be special ones! There are still some tickets…

Mister Moon Turns Heads

Down in the Elbo Room’s psychedelic basement, Mister Moon was second to take the stage in a series of four bands. Their show marked the band’s first concert in Chicago, and although they came in with limited exposure in the big city, I’m certain they left with new fans. Before their set even began, those…

CollXtion II

Allie X returned to Chicago last week looking considerably more gangster than the last time she was in town. Donning mouthy overalls, a trucker hat, and aviators, Allie X strut her stuff across the stage as she played her way through hit from her first album, and fresh ones off of CollXtion II. While still maintaining her…

Sundara Karma @ Subterranean 4/18

NME’s “Best New Band of 2017” is coming back to Chicago this Tuesday to play at Subterranean with Coast Modern and 888. The band was last in Chicago the night before Thanksgiving and played one hell of a show at Bottom Lounge. Since we last saw them, they have officially released their debut album, Youth…
