Ane Brun, Nadastrom, De La Soul & More: Chicago Venue Menu May 21 – 27

Chicago Venue Menu May 21 through 27

After the gorgeous weekend we just had, I’m not even going to hate on the temperature drop and overcast skies today. I hope your weekends were filled with fun and you were able to get your grill on.

As per usual, we’ve got some awesome shows coming to our city and I’ll even be at one or two of them. Also, next weekend, May 26th, The L Stop (who I also write for) is celebrating their first anniversary and the party should be hella fun. We’ve even got Red Hot Annie, one of Chicago’s premiere burlesque dancers, who will be providing some entertainment for the evening. Get your tickets now and note that the price of admission (be it VIP or regular) includes a three hour open bar. Grab your tickets now!

  2. Ane Brun is the reason my sky box has been trenud off for the last three weeks.sorry,but I find her completely annoying. some genius at sky has decided to use miss Brunvolls badly interpretted vocal attack of Cyndi Laupers true colours’ on an advert and sky being the most shameless self promoters are playing it every ad break, I love this song but the more you hear of Miss Bruns version the more grating it becomes, maybe miss Brun should remain within her vocal range in future instead of impersonating stars like Miss Lauper and Bjork
