A few Chicago music news bites

Rabble Rabble's new 7"
  • Chicago's Rabble Rabble are set to release a new 7" single on May 23. Both tracks - "Why Not" on the A side and "Long Hook" on the B side - show off the band's rowdy garage-psych rock well and were recorded at Gimme That Sound Studios during the their east coast tour last year. They'll play the Empty Bottle the night of the single's release.
  • We are totally jealous of Archie Powell & the Exports right now. Why? Because they (well, a couple of them) wound up in the Cash Cab! See how they did here.
  • The final music lineup has been released for Do-Division Street Festival, going down June 4th and 5th. Among the acts playing are White Mystery, Empires, California Wives, The Shams Band plus many more. Check out the full list here.
  • In honor of Cinco de Mayo, classic Windy City rockers Cheap Trick have recorded a Mariachi version of one of their signature tunes, "Surrender." Yes, a Mariachi version of "Surrender." There's a video, too. See and hear the (quite surreal) fun here.

  1. Division Fest is only a stop, drop, and roll away - wouldn't miss it. Nice lineup too
