  • Like Netherfriends? How about colored records? Well, now you can have both together in one brightly colored package of goodness via Netherfriends' latest LP, Middle America, on pink vinyl.
  • Chicago Mixtape interviewed Outer Minds about how the band came together, what other Chicago music they're liking lately and what's coming up next.
  • Starting on September 1st, a 30-day, free festival called "Chicago, I love you" will kick off, "celebrating Chicago's art, photography, film, literature, comedy, music and much more." The goal of the festival is to highlight and unify Chicago's various forms of art at one time. Check out Chicagoist's interview with organizer and musician Tom Schraeder for more information.
