Introducing: Goose Island CIVL Pale Ale

Since Goose Island started serving beers to Chicagoans in Nineteen Eighty-Eight, we’ve drank, danced, and sang along at the small, independent venues that have built our city’s music scene. Without these clubs, Chicago simply wouldn’t be Chicago. These places bring us together. They drive our city’s culture forward. And yet these independent venues were the first to close and will be the last to re-open, if they make it through. In honor of all these wonderful clubs we will be releasing a limited…

If you work with any local organizations, let us know how…

To a music lover, Record Store Day is arguably more crucial to take part in than the conventional holidays we spend with distant relatives. It’s a golden opportunity for record stores and indie bands to market, and cities are flooded with free underground events. The music lovers wake up early to flock to their favorite record store and scour through the vinyl racks to find limited editions. Record Store Day was sparked in 2007 by a Bull Moose employee who…

A FUNERAL NO ONE ATTENDED

They’ve been piled into the darkness of a storage unit somewhere in the city. The CD racks have been removed from the space they inhabited at Record Breakers and a blank floor is waiting for the new vinyl racks in construction. Hipsters just don’t appreciate the digital quality of a…

RECORD BREAKERS IN-STORE SHOWCASE #3 – 12 DECEMBER

RECORD BREAKERS IN-STORE SHOWCASE #3 – 12 DECEMBER This was the “grunge showcase” – Lever being the “4-piece bipolar grunge pop” and New Oceans the “gritty, distorted sound” reminiscent of ‘90s Seattle.

A BRIEF HISTORY OF RECORDING AND SHARING MUSIC

A BRIEF HISTORY OF RECORDING AND SHARING MUSIC When people think of Thomas Edison, most think of the lightbulb (or all the inventions he didn’t credit to Tesla), but his early recording device, the phonograph, began the music industry as well.

As the earliest medium for recording and reproducing sound, the phonography cylinder was used commercially to playback music from the 1890’s to the 1920’s….
