Week that Was (10-18-12 to 10-24-12)

Time for some new music. This week’s “Week that Was” features a lot of stuff I love, especially the Bago and Steffaloo tracks. Steffaloo’s album “Would You Stay” dropped earlier this week, and you can download the Bago mixtape right here. As far as the Mistah F.A.B. song, the 3rd verse is left open on purpose, with F.A.B. encouraging fans to record their own remixes. If you choose to do that, we’d love to hear them! Enjoy the rest, and let us know what we missed! Don’t forget to enter our contest for free Daughter/Choir of Young Believers tickets right here!

Netherfriends Announces Schubas Residency

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).

Pre-Order Tickets here:

New Cassettes Return to Chicago – October 12th @ Empty Bottle

Empty Bottle
10:00 PM
1035 N. Western Ave.
Chicago, IL.

Our favorite band from Northampton is back in Chicago, opening for White Arrows and Family of the Year this Friday, October 12th, at the Empty Bottle. We had a chance to cover the band back in March and they were great. Frontman Tom Stubbs never stops dancing, moving all over the stage getting down to the bands infectious melodies. If you make it out to the Empty Bottle to catch these guys, you won’t be disappointed. Especially since tickets are only $8!

You can purchase tickets for the show here.

Pygmalion Music Festival: An Interview With Founder Seth Fein

Although writing about the final festival of the summer season brings me down a bit, just looking at the Pygmalion 2012 lineup makes it all better. Festival founder Seth Fein has jam packed the 3 day festival with the big name likes of Grizzly Bear, Dinosaur Jr, Dirty Projectors, Sleigh Bells, and Best Coast, along with local acts Common Loon, Elsinore, and Santah. 54 bands will make their way to the Champaign-Urbana area overall, and you can catch all of them for the price of $100. To buy a festival pass, click here.

The great man that brings all of this to the generally quiet (maybe not quiet anymore) college town is Seth Fein. The Smile Politely founder (Champaign-Urbana’s independent online magazine) and Nicodemus Agency owner is a very busy man, as the titles show. Luckily he answered a couple questions for ACITM, which should help you learn more about the festival and CU’s musical savior himself. Check it out after the jump!
