A few Chicago music news bites

  • Are you a musician who could use free studio time or do you know a musician who could use free studio time? Chicago's Hatch Recording is giving away just that (4 hours of it) to one lucky band who follows them on Twitter @hatchrecording. They'll select the winner on April 1st.
  • If it seems like everyone is at SXSW except you, we can sympathize. Luckily, we can live vicariously through Rabble Rabble, one of the bands representing our city down in Texas, who are documenting their experience with a series of videos on Behold.
  • The idea of 12-and-13-year-olds playing rock and roll might naturally induce a bit of skepticism, but locals Northbrook Garage are proving that tweens can make some damn fine music. Take it from Sharon Jones, who said of them: "The babies are bringing back soul! Ain't that something!" See for yourself when the band plays the Abbey tonight, March 18th. Details here.
  • Daytrotter has just put up a session with the Windy City's own Hollows. Grab it here.
