Blackhawks a Little Softer Without Shaw

The Chicago Blackhawks have had their fair share of bad luck so far this season. Things were looking up in the offseason when former player Andrew Shaw returned to the roster, but he recently fell to the injury bug that has plagued their locker room. He was placed on long-term injured reserve in late November due to concussion-like symptoms. Despite not being very active on the scoresheet, his absence continues to hurt the Blackhawks’ season. Shaw’s Style Before being traded to the Montr...

Sofar Sounds raise $25m, but will artists see any of that?

Sofar Sounds are bringing unique, intimate gigs to people’s living rooms and other mysterious locations – but are they for the artists, the audience, or themselves? Sofar Sounds aren’t just a live sessions producer, nor are they quite a gig promoter – they stand in a league of their own. They launched just under 10 years ago with a passion for live music and a disdain for the rest of the live music experience – loud crowds, busy venues, sweaty smells, exorbitant drink prices. Sofar Soun...

SoFar Sounds house concerts raises $25M, but bands get just $100

Tired of noisy music venues where you can hardly see the stage? SoFar Sounds puts on concerts in people’s living rooms where fans pay $15 to $30 to sit silently on the floor and truly listen. Nearly 1 million guests have attended SoFar’s more than 20,000 gigs. Having attended a half dozen of the shows, I can say they’re blissful…unless you’re a musician to pay a living. In some cases, SoFar pays just $100 per band for a 25 minute set, which can work out to just $8 per musician per hour or less. ...

Joyero – “Salt Mine”

The two members of Wye Oak remain extremely productive in between album cycles. Most indie music fans are aware of Jenn Wasner's solo work as Flock Of Dimes, and perhaps you remember her great Dungeonesse side project or her production work for artists like Madeline Kenney. But did you know Andy Stack, the other half … More »

Why Not The Blackhawks?

from Madeline Kenney of the Chicago Sun-Times, It’s a weird concept for the Blackhawks that an early February game would have high stakes, but whether they wanted to admit it or not, the Hawks’ 4-3 overtime victory over the Canucks on Thursday at the United Center was their biggest game of the season. The Hawks have notched 12 points in the last two-and-a-half weeks. In a surprise move, the Hawks, who seemed destined for a lottery pick just a short time ago, are now one of four teams ...

A Call For Patience In Chicago

from Madeline Kenney of the Chicago Sun-Times, In 2016, the Blackhawks’ future looked bright despite being eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. At the time, general manager Stan Bowman believed he held the pieces that were going to develop and improve the team. He pointed to budding prospects such as Vinnie Hinostroza, Ryan Hartman, Tyler Motte and Nick Schmaltz, who were going to lead the next successful generation of Hawks. But after Schmaltz was dealt to the Coyotes f...

Can Toews, Saad & Keith Bounce Back?

As the 2018-19 season approaches, the Chicago Blackhawks are looking to make a comeback after their disastrous 2017-18 season. Coach Joel Quenneville is optimistic about it, as he told, “Coming off last year, with our experienced guys, new guys, and their experiences, adding it to the mix with younger guys and getting a little bit better, we have some growth and excitement.” However, a comeback will be difficult if some of their star players don’t make a comeback as well. It’s no secret ...

Joel Quenneville Under Pressure In Chicago

from Madeline Kenney of the Chicago Sun-Times, In short, it’s playoffs or bust this season. It’s a lofty goal for Quenneville, who enters training camp on Friday with a young group of players surrounded by an aging core and lingering uncertainty about Crawford. “We’re in the winning business,” Quenneville, the longest tenured coach in the NHL, said at the Hawks fan convention in July. “That’s the most exciting thing. Having a team that plays the right way and playing together as a...
