A few Chicago music news bites

  • Lollapalooza aftershows have been announced. Check out the full list here.
  • Chicago rockers Michael Lux and the Bad Sons -- who put out a really excellent debut EP late last year -- have released a video for a new track titled "We Left Phantoms Behind," performed live earlier this month at Bottom Lounge. Watch it here.
  • As reported on Robert Feder's Time Out Chicago blog, alt-rock station Q101 WKQX 101.1 FM is under new ownership by former Tribune Company CEO Randy Michaels' Merlin Media, and is expected to drop music programming for an all-news format in the coming weeks.
  • The Chicago Reader published the results of their "Best of Chicago 2011" poll, and Windy City Rock was selected as one of the best local music blogs! Thank you to everyone who voted for us and congratulations to our friends at as well.
