Best of Chicago 2011 | Chicago Reader.

This week is the Reader‘s “Best of Chicago” issue, and I wrote a handful of blurbs for this year’s issue. Take a gander at them:

Best band-on-band synergy

Best musical wunderkid who could use a nap

Best local response to a national music meme

Best musical YouTube sensation

Best new band that will make you think it’s 1995 again

Best reinvention of an old medium

Best local sports icon unconventionally reinterpreted as the face of midwestern microscenes

Best nontraditional music venue

Best use of old styles in new art

Best case of nostalgia, bordering on time travel

This also marks my one-year anniversary writing for the ReaderMy profile on Strangelight landed somewhere in the middle of last year’s “Best of Chicago” issue. It’s been a wonderful year freelancing for them, and this year should be a blast as well.
