Two days into 2015 and I’m back from a lengthy but much needed holiday vacation. I thought I’d take this time to highlight my last little bits of writing from 2014. Years down the line, it’s still a nice treat to see my byline every time (and to be reminded that somebody out there trusts me enough to put my thoughts out into the world).
I had the chance to talk to Andrew W.K. about his New Year’s Eve show in Chicago for Choose Chicago but was sadly unable to make it. Still willing to bet it was a party, party, party.
I did have the opportunity to catch beloved emo/math rockers American Football’s first Chicago show following their reunion. Here’s my review.
And, finally, the Chicagoist crew put together some of our favorite local musical moments and releases from the past year. I did not to try to focus so heavily on hip hop, it was just a great year in that department I suppose!
