The Approach of Logan

Logan is the full length from Austin trio The Gary & it emerges blinking into the light today. The Gary will kick out their jams on the inside stage during the The Midgetmen's 8th Birthday/Anniversorry Party May 8th at the Mohawk...but don't worry, we'll remind you. 

 

   

Lolla Line-up Chicago POV

Well, Chicago currently holds 5% of the overall 122 bands announced for Lollapalooza 2010. However, four of the six Chicago acts are not main stage acts, but a part of the “Spinning At Perry” section of the line-up. Head over to Lolla for the full line-up and feel free to post you complaints about how Soundgarden, Green Day, and The Strokes are no longer relevant.

The Chicago bands at Lolla 2010 are Company of Thieves, Skybox, Felix Da Housecat, BBU, Flosstradamus, and Only Children.

Free Write

I was recently alerted to the latest album from The Dogs. It’s called Free Write and it was released this past December. The album can be downloaded for free from the bands website. The Dogs is a collective of young and talented musicians that play a soulful brand of jam band folk rock. This is the bands second album, their self-titled debut was released in November 2008.
