To my fellow Chicagoans, I want to make a quick mention that if your Friday is not yet booked, there’s some great live music you can go out and see. Then again, pretty much any night of the week there’s great live music to go and see. But this Friday the bands Cymbals Eat Guitars and Hooray for Earth will be performing at Lincoln Hall. It’s a 21+ show, and tickets are $12 in advance ($15 at the door). I’ll be there and will have a show review for you by Monday, but early warning this should be a great show. Tickets are available here. Okay, let’s get on with today’s Pick Your Poison. I can say nice things about tracks from Adrienne Drake, Anna Rose (and her Arcade Fire cover), The Beets, St. Even (with Jenn Wasner of Wye Oak), The Trophy Fire and Yojimbo Billions. Hip hop fans may want to have a listen to the new Wale track ft. Kid Cudi, up for streaming in the Soundcloud section.
