April in Review
By Sarah on May 10, 2011
So, Grooveshark was acting a bit wacky lately, and the handy little widget option went away, thus delaying my April mix. It’s back now, so have at it. The list is a bit short this month, as I haven’t been listening to a whole lot of new and interesting things. Thanks, cat and work and […]

By Sarah on August 2, 2010
So, there’s this little festival called Lollapalooza rolling into Grant Park this weekend. Maybe you’ve heard of it? I’ll be there all weekend, Tweeting and taking bad photos bitching about the heat and the crowds, and hoping my phone doesn’t run out of battery.

Awesome Summer Festival Alert
By Sarah on March 13, 2010
Not being from Canada, I’m not exactly clued in to the musical going-ons of our gigantic neighbor to the north. But the Winnipeg Folk Festival, scheduled for July 7 through 11, is definitely something I should know about, despite the fact that it’s far away… oh, wait, Winnipeg is only a two-hour flight away. Never mind, it isn’t that far. Huh.

There are several great shows going on this week, including a whole bunch at the newly opened Lincoln Hall; Ted […]
