Thought I’d let you in on what’s going on with the blog since it has admittedly been a slow couple of weeks.
- Last Saturday, Stephanie and Claire hit up Reggie’s Rock Club to see Murder By Death, Ha Ha Tonka, & Linfinity, while Meesh and myself went to Bamboozle Midwest and saw a plethora of bands, including Something Corporate, Allister, and Treaty of Paris. We hope to get recaps of those shows written up for you guys soon.
- We’re going to start incorporating video into the blog, which will include, but not be limited to, recap vlogs and interviews. Steph, Claire, and I are gonna get a double dose of The Spill Canvas, Tyler Hilton, AM Taxi, & New Politics this weekend, so I’m sure we’ll have tons of fun footage! We made a YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/storiesfromascene), so just keep an eye out.
- I made separate pages for both show and release calendars. We’ll keep them both updated as much as possible. The show calendar is mostly going to be whatever’s happening in Chicago/the Chicagoland area, but we’ll add some in cities like Indianapolis, Milwaukee, etc. if there are locals playing there. If you know of an upcoming show or album release, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
That’s about it! Claire is living in the city for the summer and Meesh will be moving to the area in less than a month, so hopefully we can get this train going full speed. Can’t wait.
