Chicago Mixtape

Casey Meehan (Rock Proper, Jitney) has been a long time supporter of Chicago Music and on Feb. 14th he is launching a new site and service called Chicago Mixtape. Its mission is simple: a mailing list that continuously connects Chicago music fans to progressive local bands by supplying a weekly compilation of high quality MP3s to its subscribers.

Fans who subscribe before midnight on Valentine’s day will instantly receive a bonus “Starter Mixtape” featuring unreleased material from long standing Chicago favorites Oh My God as well as the buzz-worthy new soul band JC Brooks and The Uptown Sound and more.

White Mystery has announced the details of their next release, and the follow-up to their self-titled, self-released debut LP. The album will be called Blood & Venom, and will be released on April 20th.

The duo is performing on Feb. 14th at Empty Bottle and then playing three shows at SXSW. The release party for Blood & Venom will be held at Pancho's on April 20th.
