Live in Chicago: Going Swimmingly

| 1 comment

Woo hoo!

Our planning for the The Sound of Young America Live! in Chicago is going swimmingly. We've an official forum thread, an official pre-show meetup, a MySpace events page (RSVP! Invite friends!), an event page on Facebook (same deal), and even... A LINEUP!

Performing comedy will be:
Hannibal Buress (above on the Late Late Show)
Team Submarine
& The Second City

I'll be interviewing legendary rock producer Steve Albini -- the man who produced In Utero among many, many, many other great rock albums.

Plus we'll have live music!

It's all free of course, and it's all Halloween night at the Second City's etc stage. I promise to get everyone out of there in time to go to Halloween parties, too. Tell your friends! Go! Please!

Chicago: The Guests So Far...

| 1 comment

As most of you know, The Sound of Young America will be live in Chicago on Halloween. We're at the Second City's e.t.c. stage, with an in-person taping and lots and lots of big fun. Best of all, it's all 100% free.

So far, you can expect comedy from Hannibal, Team Submarine, Schadenfreude and The Second City, PLUS an interview with rock superproducer Steve Albini.

We may yet add a music act to the mix, but things are looking really exciting. The comedy lineup is bursting and I can't wait to talk to Steve -- I spoke with him briefly today and he's a firecracker.

Chicagoans: be there or be square.
