Playlist and Podcast for March 26, 2009

So here comes another week in local and indie music on Indiesomnia! The show can be downloaded here, or listen online via the streaming player on the right-hand side of the page! It seems that, with the slow thaw starting in Chicago, we are seeing an increase in show offerings, and that there are even MORE great things to see live this week in the city! Anyway, I'm starting to ramble, but take care, and enjoy the show!
<3, Susan.
