A little over two years ago, I moved from my comfortable parents’ house in suburbia to the city of Chicago.  Having grown up just 23 miles outside of the city, the transition was simple. That said, moving downtown hasn’t taught me anything crazy about myself, by any means.  If anything, I’ve learned a lot about […]

Today was a day where I truly became a zombie.  A productive zombie, but a zombie nonetheless.  I’m talking the eyes glazed over, performing the same motions, hardly moving, few words, type of zombie.  It was the opposite of a sensory overload.  When my zombie brain couldn’t take it anymore, it became imperative that I […]


As you all can tell, the Plot Your Escape event did, in fact, turn out to be real. I may have been the only one on the face of the Earth who was worried about a possible scam, but to me…no info on the internet can be a deal breaker. The internet knows all and […]


As excited as I am for this Plot Your Escape concert, I have a few fears…mainly because there is practically zero information about it online. I could Google for hours and come back with nothing more than a time, location and pile of tweets from people asking how to get tickets. However, I did meander […]


I’m going to this? Somebody pinch me, please. If you don’t mind, I’m going to bother you with a small portion of my life story. This is about my inability to win contests. Big, small, short, tall – I don’t win them. I’m pretty sure that if I was the only person to enter a […]


Better late than never, right?  This past weekend marked a moment in history. I, a song hoarder/concert lover/music blogger, finally experienced my first Lollapalooza.  I know, I’m on the fast track to fame.  First, this post.  Next, a music publicist position followed by a million dollar book deal. Slight exaggeration.  All joking aside, being able […]


Today is Friday and as usual, I spent my morning on the prowl for a “Friday” song.  No, Rebecca Black’s hot mess of a YouTube video will not be gracing your ears via Haute Thought today; though if you want to have “fun fun fun fun,” you go right on ahead and add that song […]


Listening to DJs Eric and Kathy during my frantic race (if I could highlight “frantic race” and make it size 100 font, I would) to the train station this morning, I learned a bit about Matt Nathanson.  Eric informed listeners that Nathanson has to be at least “6 foot billion” and both he and Kathy […]


Flight to New Orleans: about $350.00 round-trip Obligatory purple, green and gold clothing: probably close to $50 Hotel/food/drink costs: don’t even want to think about it Grand total? A sobbing wallet, clinically depressed bank account, and minuscule dignity. Luckily, Festa Parties has a solution for all Chicagoans who bleed purple, green and gold and are […]


Forming a band from a group of individuals that have been trained in genres ranging from classical music to rock music to electronic is a difficult feat.  Each style has its own strengths and complications, and attempting to fuse them together could easily turn out to be a jumbled mess.  California Wives, a four piece […]
