Dear Readers,

What I am about to share with you is an exclusive behind the scenes look at what goes down each weekend for a music blog located in the best city in the midwest, dare I say best in the whole wide world. Before I begin, it is imperative that I tell you some pertinent information to aid with the story. The city of Chicago is a haven of good food, good people, and good damn good music; the event scene kicks off Wednesday and runs a trail of fun that ends on Monday. On any day in between that time frame, we Chicagoans are spoiled rotten with easy access to the best of what the city has to offer musically. Over the last five days my eyes and ears we’re treated to performances by Ladytron, Dillon Francis, Zeds Dead, Gemini among many more, proving yet again something I’ve always stated, don’t ever leave Chicago on the weekends! Enjoy mes Amis.

Big thanks to Johnny and Joe at ZvsS, the lovely ladies at Mac & Smash, the good people over at React Presents, Congress Theater, The Mid Chicago, and Derek and Rick at Rehab Mondays for everything last week.
