Do Division Festival, Yuna, Drake, Le Butcherettes and More: Chicago’s Venue Menu

After a late night Saturday, my voice is gone and doesn’t seem to be coming back any time soon. So, instead of going the podcast route, I’m going to put the event info here and you can stream songs from the artists below. I’ll be at Le Butcherettes Friday night and am ready to lose my mind while having my face melted by Teri Genderbender and her crew. They’ll be at Do Division on Saturday so if you miss them Friday you’ll have another chance!

Also for your pleasure, check out my interviews with JD Samson, Sea of Bees and Young Kaii for AfterEllen.
