This is not a live album. This is an experiment in residency. Our friend Netherfriends returns to Chicago for the month of November to perform every Monday at Schubas. Each week, Shawn Rosenblatt, sole writer and performer of Netherfriends, will prepare 4 new songs to track and record (along with re-arranged classics) with plans to release the collection as a new album. During each performance, Shawn will have the audience contribute sounds he can then sample to help compose the songs (how cool is that? Show up to Schubas one of these nights and you’ll be included in an album).

Milagres was in town last Sunday night for a performance at Schuba’s. Chicago was given an intimate show to cap off their weekend by a Brooklyn-based band excited to play.
Milagres, the five guy band from Brooklyn, continues their US tour by making a stop in Chicago’s Schuba’s on Sunday. Their latest album Glowing Mouth released last September is an indie pop compilation with a hint of funk. Read on for how the album came together- it is a story worth telling.

Thursday night marked the start of a very busy weekend for ACITM. Maggie was catching the rays in Miami at Ultra Music Festival, and I began a stretch of 3 concerts in 3 days as well. A Great Big Pile of Leaves, Mansions, and Young Statues came to Chicago fresh off of a bunch of performances at SXSW, kicking off a mini tour through the midwest and northeast.
Matt Weber from Young Statues at Schubas Thursday night
In town this Thursday is Brooklyn’s very own A Great Big Pile of Leaves.

With tickets only $8 in advance and $10 at the door, make sure to stop by at 9 for a night filled with great tunes from an up and coming band.
