Devil In A Woodpile - In Your Lonesome Town
Have you ever found yourself sitting around with a jug of moonshine and a tin of beans, and thought: "Man, I could really use some top-notch hobo music right now!" Luckily, we've found the perfect band for you. :) Hailing from Chicago, Devil In A Woodpile is the sort of band that sounds like a gimmick on paper, sounds pretty amazing on record, and then blows the doors off your mind in a live setting. Virtuoso playing ability coupled with a genuine love of the music they are saving from obscurity puts Devil In A Woodpile in a unique place...a dying breed of musicians playing a dying breed of music for a rabidly enthusiastic fanbase. If you really just *love* music, you need this album.

There are so many great tracks its hard to pick just one! It was just announced that Bill Champlin has left the band Chicago after 28 years (!) and will be doing a solo tour later in the year to support his solo release out on August 4, called “No Place Left to Fall”. He will no doubt put on an amazing show with all this great new material. I’ve been a fan since his earlier CHICAGO days, and an equally big admirer since the Sons of Champlin played the Fillmore West in 1970! I have all his records and this new one is LONG overdue! “No Place Left to Fall” has an amazing list of contributors performing including: Bruce Gaitsch, George Hawkins, Jr., Billy Ward, Mark Eddinger, Steve Lukather, Peter Cetera, Michael English, Tamara Champlin, Will Champlin and Keith Howland. Champlin has worked with Chicago for 28 years (Champlin was on lead vocals on their famous tune “Look Away”), Patti LaBelle, Lou Rawls, Elton John, Boz Scaggs, Donna Summer, Nancy Wilson, George Benson, Jimmy Smith, Amy Grant, Neil Diamond, Kenny Rogers, Jason Scheff of Chicago, and Toto’s Bobby Kimball and Joseph Williams and is in the top of the classic rock, AAA, A/C heritage artists.

He's my pick for hip hop video of the year for his song "Superstar".

If you're a Chicagoan like myself who gets a late night wiener craving from time to time, you might want to make a booty cuisine call to Rockstar Dogs. Wear your sassy heels cuz they have a stripper pole. I am tempted to say so many naughty things in this review I almost have to sit on my hands. With menu items like the extra-long wiener titled "The Tommy Lee" you can imagine how hard it is for me to refrain. (tossed in a pun right there in case ya missed it. No, not wiener. Keep going. That's right.... a little more.... ahhhh. There it is. "Hard.") So instead of my smut, let me tell you what Jenny Berg of BizBash had to say about this place: _________________ Dion Antic, owner of nightspots including Iggy's 3, opened Rockstar Dogs in March. Located in Ukrainian Village, the cheeky hot-dog stand (complete with an in-store stripper pole) offers a menu that pays tribute to musicians. New this summer, Rockstar Dogs offers catering for events and meetings for as many as 1,000 guests. Selections include the Latin-style Los Lobos dog, which is wrapped with bacon and topped with sliced jalapeños; there's also the charbroiled, cheesy J. Timberlake dog and the onion- and Düsseldorf-mustard-smothered White Stripe brat. The hot dogs come with Miss Vicki's potato chips, and are delivered in an earth-friendly, electric pick-up truck. —Jenny Berg ________________ Ok I have to go find some holy water and wash my filthy typing fingers off. 801 N Ashland Ave (between Chicago Ave & Fry St) Chicago, IL 60622 (312) 421-2364 Hours: Tue-Wed 11:00 a.m.-2:00 a.m. Thu 11:00 a.m.-4:00 a.m. Fri-Sat 11:00 a.m.-4:00 a.m. Sun 11:00 a.m.-11:00 p.m.
