Foster The People-Friday @ 3, Sony Stage
This weekend Lollapalooza makes it’s 6th return to the lakefront of Chicago and it brings close to a 100 acts and 95,000 people per day (approxmiately 275,000 total over three days).

Whatever Happened to "Soil"?

Rock band “Soil”, originally from the northwest suburbs of Chicago formed in 1997, was on a rocket start to stardom after originally having their singles “Halo” and “Unreal” hit every major market radio station and then releasing their best charting album “Redefine” in 2004. My question is “What Happened?”  It seems like yesterday that they... Read more »

Fall Out Boy, Plain White T's, Rise Against, The Academy Is...

Originally from DuPage County
What do all these big time bands have in common you ask??? Believe it or not, they all got their start playing shows at the Arlington Heights Knight of Columbus, located at 15 N.
