Podcast revamping

Hey, all! We're in the process of revamping the show to make it even more awesome for you. The downside of this is, it's gonna take us a bit longer to get things out to you til the revamp is complete. We've got the regular weekly showlist below, and promise to get this week's podcast out to you ASAP. Since time doesn't stand still, though, check out a quick written run-down of live stuff in town this week, and check back soon for this week's podcast!
<3, Susan.

Playlist and Podcast for August 6, 2009

Sorry for the slightly belated posting this week! There was so much good music to pack in to this week's show, we took a little longer to put it together in order to give you more show and festival previews! The podcast can be downloaded here, and can also be played using player in the right-hand bar. As you probably know, this weekend's big Chicago festival is probably the biggest of the whole summer, Lollapalooza, and we have festival picks for each day, as well as afterparty previews and other local goodness, so sit back, and enjoy the show!
<3, Susan.
