Playlist and Podcast for June 25, 2009

Another day, another dollar. You know how it goes. In the case of Indiesomnia, it's another week, another great set of music. This week's podcast can be downloaded here, or played online using the player at the right-hand side of the page. There are (as usual) lots of sweet shows going down in town this week—take a gander at the showlist for some ideas! You can get your daily schedules for the Taste of Chicago here, and that Yearbooks track I mentioned in the show is available, along with a nice little writeup of the band, through the Chicago Rock Music Examiner blog. That's about it for now. Take care, and have a good week!
<3, Susan.
