Concert Photos: Do Division Street Fest (Chicago, IL)

This past weekend, over 20 bands took to two stages on one of Chicago’s major thoroughfares, Division Street. The performances were part of the annual Do Division Street Fest & Sidewalk Sale. In addition to the music, local purveyors of food, drink, retail, and crafts offered a family-friendly crowd a wide variety of sustenance and shopping. Photographer Elizabeth Gilmore captured these images of A Place to Bury Strangers, Bonobo, Big Freedia & The Divas with Rusty Lazer, Javelin, and Dengue Fever over the course of the weekend.

MoogFest 2010: A look at the electronic festival’s move to Asheville

Despite its history and charm, Asheville, North Carolina isn’t widely known as a destination for music and culture.  Many associate the town with the Blue Ridge Parkway, hippie drumming, and maybe Black Mountain College, a progressive institution that closed in 1957 but once was a center for artists like Merce Cunningham and John Cage.  But look deeper and you’ll also find a contemporary music scene, classy bars, and a population of locals that are culturally aware and proud of their town.

And they’re nice — like deep-South nice.  Maybe that’s why Robert Moog decided to spend the last 25 years of his life there.

Andreya Triana: “Far Closer”


With her debut release, Lost Where I Belong, soul singer Andreya Triana transitions from being a go-to featured guest vocalist to a full fledged solo artist.

The Brighton-based songstress has been favored by left-field producers and beat-makers such as Flying Lotus and Mr. Scruff, offering a distinct voice that points back to the deep and sensuous tone of Nina Simone. Under the production supervision of fellow Ninja Tune multi-instrumentalist and overall groove peddler Simon Green, a.k.a. Bonobo, Lost Where I Belong places Triana’s soul and folk-inflected vocal-jazz style under a well-deserved spotlight.
