Isn’t it so annoying trying to find new music? You have to search blog after blog after blog, rifling through Bandcamp and Myspace pages trying to find that one last bastion of musical creativity. Wouldn’t it be great if this music could just be mailed to you for free? Better yet, what about mailed electronically? Oh, and there should be opportunities to get free concert tickets. And it should be based in Chicago with the sole purpose being to bring greater exposure to what’s going on in the underground…well isn’t it a hell of a coincidence that the Chicago Mixtape is launching this Monday the 14th?
Yup, they’ve got pretty much all that I asked for. The weekly mixtape showcases bands that will be performing around the city that week. As a bonus, if you sign up before the official launch on Monday, you get a starter mixtape featuring Oh My God, Baby Teeth, the recently reviewed JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound, amongst others. So if you’ve been looking for a "musical festival in your inbox every week," your search is over, my friend. Sign up today and soon enough, you won’t need to depend on blogs like us anymore (fingers crossed that this post doesn’t come back to bite me in the ass).
