We thought it would be fun to share with all of you out there what we have been playing in the shop lately. We created a Spotify playlist with some of our faves of the last few weeks. It will be forever changing and updated so check back regularly. Everything in the playlist is for sale at the shop!!

We had a great show at the shop last night, three awesome and young local bands ripping it up. Care Center, Consumer. & Jen Fur were all in fine form!! So nice to see the fertile young Chicago music scene full of diversity and creativity, showing the old folks what's up and making our city proud. Our next show is gonna be a total psychedelic headtrip with two wonderful local bands. Brainwaiver and Slow Planes grace our "stage" on Saturday, January 28th. More details below.
