A few Chicago music news bites

  • Do-Division Street Festival, happening June 1st-3rd on Division from Ashland to Leavitt, has revealed some of the bands in its music lineup. So far, Le Butcherettes, Antlers, O'Death, Murder by Death, BBU and Mannequin Men are set to play, with more announcements to come.
  • The Lollapalooza lineup doesn't officially come out until this Wednesday, but if you want to speculate head over to prettymuchamazing.com where they've posted an alleged Lolla internal memo listing the acts set to play. If you choose to believe, we're in for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, Black Sabbath, Jack White and Florence & the Machine, to name a few. We'll find out for sure tomorrow!
  • Gapers Block reviewed Friday night's show with Wild Flag and Hospitality at Metro.
  • Chicago folk-rock band Paper Thick Walls are going to score and star in a film inspired by their music. "We Grew Up Here," an indie film directed by Kevin Pickman, will feature PTW members Eric Michaels and Kate Schell and tell the story of "a musician who goes searching for his ex-girlfriend and his hometown after both go missing." There is a Kickstarter set up with more details to help raise funds for the project.
  • Greg Kot of the Tribune interviewed Chicago artist Willis Earl Beal, whose album Acousmatic Sorcery came out last week.
