A few Chicago music news bites

  • Tune into 89.5 FM or go to tonight, May 13th, at 6 to hear WCR's own Andrew Hertzberg discussing the issue of OFWGKTA at Pitchfork fest, which has been stirring debate over the last couple weeks. Andrew originally shared his thoughts on it here.
  • Did you see Lou Reed's...err...interesting performance at Lollapalooza back in 2009? Whether or not you were there to catch it, you will soon be able to own it on DVD. It comes out in July to coincide with Reed's European tour.
  • Loud Loop Press published a review of last Saturday's show at Bottom Lounge featuring Surfer Blood and ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead. Check out what they had to say about it here.
  • One helpful commenter on this very site let us know that if you bring this coupon to FYE starting next Tuesday, May 17th, you will be able to get a copy of Company of Thieves' new album Running From a Gamble for absolutely free.
  • Speaking of free, Lissie is giving away a new mp3 her track "When I'm Alone" performed live from Shepherd's Bush Empire, which you can grab via the widget below. It was recently announced that the Rock Island, IL native (who is now based in California) will play Lollapalooza in August, but before that she will be back in the Chicago area to play a benefit concert at the ALS Association Greater Chicago Chapter Walk on May 21st.
