Local H: Local H have been criss-crossing the country non-stop since their latest album -- Hey, Killer -- was released to rave reviews in April. So far, the tour has included sold-out shows in Brooklyn, Boston and Chicago, as well as a triumphant return to Milwaukee’s Summerfest, several indie brewery festivals and a fall tour with Failure and ... And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. “Our schedule has been a bit relentless, and that's exactly how we feel -- relentless,” proclaims Local H frontman Scott Lucas. “We've been playing some of the best shows of our lives this year. It's pretty awesome.” Local H celebrated the 25th anniversary of their first-ever live performance in April, just as Hey, Killer was released.

Stoop Goodnoise: Stoop Goodnoise leads the way in the new Chicago rock scene. Chicago has always been a city of collided cultures coming together to form something amazing, and there is no band that encapsulates this like Stoop Goodnoise. A facepunch of 90's grunge fury, punk choruses, and intergalactic guitar solos. One part Chicago street kids, one part classic rock phenoms, but all one original sound that cannot be missed, ignored, and cannot be stopped. Stoop has played at numerous clubs around Chicago such as the Bottom Lounge, Beat Kitchen, and House of Blues. They have gone as far as being one of the three finalists in the MTV VMA 2009 Best Breakout Chicago Artist Contest, where they supported All Time Low & White Tie Affair at Six Flags Great America. Their set from that day was also featured on Comcast On Demand followed by a short interview with the band.
