Boardwalk Empire and Man of Steel star Michael Shannon (who famously read that unbelievably profane sorority email) channeled Lou Reed perfectly last night while performing Reed’s entire album Blue Mask with infamous Chicago musician Robbie Fulks and band at tiny Chicago dive club The Hideout.
Alt-country starlet Lydia Loveless stripped Kesha’s “Blind” to the bare bones and rebuilt it with twangy swagger and rock ‘n’ roll balladry.
Aubrey Plaza (of NBC’s Parks & Recreation) and Jake Johnson (of FOX’s The New Girl) play lovers in trouble in the new video for the Chicago post-punk soul outfit JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound.
The beautifully animated video about two lovers in distress is affecting and gorgeous. Get your handkerchiefs ready.
Hearing the growling baritone come out of Carnie Wilson while she’s atop a glorious mountain is strangely gratifying.
