VENETIAN BLINDS ARE PRETTY

by cheryl santa maria It has recently come to my attention that QC readers are visual arts enthusiasts. I’ve been pretty adamant about the fact that I don’t get art, but my job is to make you guys happy. So if you want art, you get art. Artist: Sunset Rubdown Song: A Day in the [...]

GAURI GILL @ THE CULTURAL CENTER OF CHICAGO

by jackie nusz With the intention of entering the Cultural Center of Chicago to quickly grab a map and head north to the cliché landmark that is Navy Pier, I ended up staying much longer after noticing a photography exhibit of Gauri Gill. Since I am a sucker for free exhibits, especially those containing photography, [...]

The Hives and Cyndi Lauper unite for a track titled “A Christmas Duel” set for digital release on December 2nd. The track will be available for free [...]
