A few Chicago music news bites

  • Two locally-based bands – Brighton, MA and Young Jesus – have been selected to take part in a Red Bull-sponsored event that will send them on a documented cross-country tour down Route 66. The tour kicks off right here with the two bands playing Kinetic Playground tonight, and will end in L.A. where one will win the opportunity to record at Santa Monica’s Red Bull Studios
  • Chicago indie duo Pinto and the Bean have gotten into the Halloween spirit by creating a ghostly video (floating heads!) for their tune “Midnight Monsters.” Watch it here
  • Greg Kot of the Tribune and our music blogging comrades at Loud Loop Press gave their takes earlier this week on Monday night’s LCD Soundsystem show at the Aragon
  • Over at, Jim DeRogatis took at look at Local H frontman Scott Lucas’s new releases from both his original band and his more recent Scott Lucas and the Married Men project
