Collection of Chicago’s 2017 Releases

see the music

As we roll through the year, I’m trying to collect all the 2017 Chicago releases I can find on Spotify. At about a day long, you’ll find music from folks like Crown Larks, The Bingers, Meat Wave, The Rubs, Mykele Deville, White Mystery, Joey Purp, NE-HI, Michelles, Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, and more.


I like to throw this mix on shuffle when I’m doing lifestuffs and see who catches my ear. It’s an easy way to hear what’s happening and find someone new. Give it a whirl, and if you find someone you like go check out a show!



Also, if you see something missing please let me know.

Looking Glass on Radio One Chicago TONIGHT!

radio one chicagoEvery Thursday from 6-8pm on Loyola University radio a group of music-lovers hit the air  to share and promote our city’s amazing local talent. I couldn’t be more excited to join them tonight as a guest DJ! Tune in to WLUW FM 88.7 if you’re in Chicago, or stream it live HERE from anywhere!


In between interviews with Chicago bands Sadie and the Stark and The Bishop’s Daredevil Stunt Club I’ll be sharing favorite tracks from some of my favorite local bands. Listen in to hear music from folks like Vamos, Dan Rico, Jude Shuma, Flesh Panthers, Lucille Furs, The Bingers, and more!


Songs of the Day: 50ct



As you mayormaynot know, I’ll sometimes post a song of the day. As I do, I also add that song to a playlist on Spotify. The list just hit 50 tracks, so wanted to share the full shebang with you today. The mix includes locals like The Bingers, Jolly Korea, and Slushy, and other folks I dig like Dirty Fences, White Reaper, and Dead Ghosts. Check it out and hopefully you’ll find something new to love!


Two Great Shows Tonight!

Happy 4/20 everyone!



One of my favorite problems about Chicago is how many amazing shows there are every day of the week, but that sometimes means I have to make a hard decision on where to spend my night. Tonight’s one of those nights, as a slew of great local bands celebrate the holiday and new releases. Check ’em out and head on out, and if you make your way to the Hideout seeyathere.

The Empty Bottle is hosting The Bingers (LP release), Peach Fuzz (EP release), and Glyders, and there’s no doubt in my mind it’s going to be a fantastic time. Click the pic for event details, and get familiar!



Over at The Hideout even more music is being released, as Dark Fog, Bionic Cavemen, and The Velcro Lewis Group hit the stage. This bill is too good to pass up, so I’ll be festively celebrating the good tunes here tonight. Come on out!
