A cold and windy evening in Chicago is always a great reason to take shelter and spend time on an indoor activity. One of our favorite indoor pastimes, as you may already know, is to take in a good show at one of Chicago’s 341 music venues. It’s honestly quite an array of musical genres on […]

Matt & Kim were coming to Chicago again, and this time I had no prior plans or obligations to stand in the way of finally meeting the dynamic duo from Brooklyn and partaking in the madness that is their live show. When I arrived to the Metro via the Shure mobile (of course), the line […]

Korn, quite simply, is at the top of their game. With Brian “Head” Welch back in the group and Ray Luzier driving the band on drums, Korn is performing better than ever. Lead singer Jonathan Davis’ voice is stronger, the group is tighter, and the fans are still supporting this band who originally came to […]

Being born and raised in the City of Broad Shoulders, there are many reasons to hold your head up and be proud – from it’s fiery history survived by a limestone tower on it’s magnificent mile, which serves as a symbol of the City’s endurance and grit, its imposing skyscrapers and resplendent downtown architecture that […]

Ever see that scene in the movie Rock Of Ages where we first meet the character Stacee Jaxx, lying in bed, draped in half naked women somewhere in a room backstage that’s been converted to look like a jungle, complete with a swimming oasis? In the scene, our jukebox hero is summoned by his fast […]

“I was walking down 79th Street in Chicago and heard a song that turned out to be Misty by Groove Holmes played on a Hammond B3. I’d never heard an organ sound like that before. I only knew one blues riff that I could play on the piano, but when I played it on a […]

After finishing my last post about how I got into Artist Relations, I thought about all of the wonderful moments I’ve been able to be a part of as a result of being in this job. Other associates often remind me to look back at what I have done so far and believe me – […]

Maybe you aren’t familiar with this Los Angeles based four-piece, but I’ve got a feeling you may find them to be quite infectious. With an intriguingly vintage folk rock sound and the musical chops reminiscent of their veteran folk rock predecessors, this group of twenty-somethings is, as told to me several times throughout the evening, […]
