Shuteye releases Hush Hush

Shuteye Chicago

Shuteye

Shuteye is award-winning singer-songwriter Elysia Hang-fu and veteran DJ/Producer Alena Ratner. Before finding one another both artists spent several years writing music and lyrics of their own. So by the time they met in 2010 they had a massive amount of unused material. After meeting each other they realized they were each other’s missing piece. They blended their art into a unique electronic sound that became Shuteye. This Chicago duo brings their own sound that truly is emotionally electrifying! Shuteye has shared the stage with artists such as Ladyhawke, The Deertracks, Peaches, JD Samson & Toro Y Moi. In May Shuteye won the Monster Diesel VEKTR Headphones Contest which got their song “Heats And Stones” converted to a 3D track. The track was featured in displays around the world! The band was recently voted Runner Up for “Best New Band” in the Chicago Reader’s “Best of Chicago 2012.” They debuted their first EP Sun Night Sky in 2011 which is a off their brand new album Hush Hush that just released last week. Take a listen for yourself!

Find Shuteye on FacebookSpotifyiTunes & CD Baby.

Having interactive yoga sessions for parents and their broods was one of my favorites! I loved watching new and veteran yogis have a blast with their yoga poses. Kids of all ages rocked sun salutations & meditation from New York’s Sweet Soul Yoga. Little yogis even got to play Yoga Jenga! Each piece had a new pose for everyone to do. Genius!

Yoga teamwork!

Kidzapalooza 2012

Kidzapalooza 2012

I have to say Kidzapalooza made me sad I didn’t bring my little one this year. Especially since kids 10 and under are FREE!  Kidzapalooza doesn’t only have their own stage and kidz store, they also have interactive play areas to keep your little ones entertained. First I ran into the Q Brothers who were teaching kids how to beat box and rap. It was great listening to kids rap about their favorite colors, foods and animals. Little ones even got to take home a copy of their phat tracks! Next I ran into Lifeway Kefir who had stationary bikes out for kids to ride and a table full of prizes. They were also helping the tikes beat the heat with free popsicles. Rock Star Video Karaoke had kids dancing up a storm in front of green screens singing and dancing to their favorite tunes. offsprings were transformed into rock stars by getting to play their own instruments in the Drumzone. You can’t be a rock star without the right look. No worries! Your rock star in training is able to get glammed with spray on hair-dye from the Punk Hairdoz tent and tatted up with paint on tattoos from the Tattooz tent and really what’s a festival without Tattooz!?

Chicago Ultimate Tumblers (CUT) Blew My Mind at Kidzapalooza

Chicago Ultimate Tumblers (CUT) Blew My Mind at Kidzapalooza

Chicago Ultimate Tumblers Lollapalooza 2012 6

Words can’t even describe how amazed I was by the Chicago Ultimate Tumblers. They awed everyone in Kidzapalooza with their ultimate acrobatic moves! Tumblers jumped off of trampolines leaping over other members of the group and volunteers from the crowd. Some tumblers soared over 17 people! It is definitely a sight to see. I suggest catching them anytime you can! President Orpheus R Floyd says the goal of the CUT is to provide positive after school activity and to focus on mentoring, tutoring and self esteem building. The CUT doesn’t only compete in city-wide competitions; they were also on Season 6 of “America’s Got Talent” and have performed at the White House.

You can follow The CUT on their myspace here . To be awed yourself check out some of their videos here

Do312 Celebrity Kickball 2012

Do312 Celebrity Kickball Game

Do312 Celebrity Kickball Game

It was a controversial game this year! Teams fought over who the real winners were and will be reviewing the tape for bragging rights! It was a close game though, whether it was a tie or really was 7-6 I can’t say. What I can say is it was a great game!

This was Do312′s 3rd year running their Celebrity Kickball game at Lolla. The line-up was amazing! Many celebrity kickballer’s came back to dual over this year’s trophy from Fender made from a real guitar. Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, Har Mar Superstar and Greg Corner of Kill Hannah came back for a 3 peat. A couple of my favorite newbie’s who came out to play were Guy Fieri from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and Kaylee Defer from Gossip Girl.

Guy was hilarious on the field. Dying to make his way home he yelled “We’re green, we’re mean! Some of us are lean….” It was awesome. He even took over one of the JBTV’s cameras to get a live perspective of the game. He carried it while up at bat and ran around getting shots of the crowd.

This year was the first time fest goers could actually watch the game. It was great to see Lolla fans talk and take pictures with the celebrities. Aaron Paul got to sign an old (not that old) High School year book for a fellow classmate.

The Broken Glass Beer Review: Fox Barrel’s Ginger & Blackcurrant

Fox Barrel's Ginger and Blackcurrant

Fox Barrel's Ginger and Blackcurrant

The best cider I have ever tasted! I’ve never had a pear cider before, it was nothing like I have ever tasted. Fox Barrel’s unfiltered pear cider has a cloudy reddish hue at first pour. This spicy red pear cider is infused with ginger extract, blackcurrant juice and organic honey. It has an aroma of sweet pear. The flavor is a rich pear and ginger at first taste. There is just enough ginger bite without that ginger burn. The last few sips are even sweeter than the first.

Tip: Give a full bottoms up tilt & swirl to evenly disperse the unfiltered pear-wine sediment.

Rogue Bacon Maple Ale

Rogue Bacon Maple Ale

When you combine a Rogue Ale with a Voodoo Doughnut it creates Bacon Maple Ale. This crazy concoction contains a baker’s dozen number of ingredients including bacon and maple syrup from one of Voodoo’s signature doughnuts. Although I don’t eat meat I have to admit I was very intrigued by this collision of beer and doughnuts. I wasn’t looking forward to any sort of bacon taste. The first sip is a burst of maple syrup and concludes with a smoky aftertaste that definitely stays with you! Personally the smokiness is too overwhelming. This ale is definitely a required taste that I just didn’t like. I will be sticking with my Dead Guy Ale.

13 Ingredients:
Malts: Briess Cherrywood Smoked Malt, Weyermann Beechwood Smoked Malt, House-smoked Hickory Malt, Great Western 2 Row, Munich, C15, C75 Malts
Speciality: Applewood-Smoked Bacon, Pure Maple Flavoring
Hops: Perle, Sterling
Yeast & Water: Pacman Yeast, Free Range Coastal Water

Specs:
14º PLATO
30 IBU
76 AA
30º Lovibond

Lupe Fiasco Soundset 2012

2012 marks the five year anniversary of Soundset. This festival was jam packed with music, B-Boys and B-Girls dancing the day away, a car show and graffiti art. Two Main Stages and the Fifth Element Stage delivered 40 artists performing nine hours of music. Unfortunately the fest was cut short due to tornado warnings. It was looking pretty ugly out during Lupe Fiasco so I cut out early. Boy am I glad I did! While walking to the car the winds started to kick up and the rain was on its way. By the time we reached the highway it was torrential downpour. The clouds moved fast and we could see a funnel cloud start to form. Shit was getting real out there!

Even though Lupe didn’t get to finish his set he came out with some awesome energy. Out of the entire festival he definitly made my top 3 acts!

Aesop Rock Rob Sonic DJ Big Wiz Soundset 2012

Ian Matthias Bavitz better known as Aesop Rock was at the forefront of the new wave of underground and alternative hip hop acts that emerged from the 1990s and early 2000s. According from his bio his name Aesop came from a movie he had acted in with some friends that stuck. The Rock part came later just from throwing it in rhymes. Yesterday he hit Soundset with Rob Sonic & DJ Big Wiz.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros 8 Cabooze Plaza

5/25/2012 Minneapolis, Minnesota Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

I have always felt I am a hippie at heart, minus the whole sent of Patchouli. But I have found myself in the need of a hippie fix, what better way than with some Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros! I arrived just in time to snag a beer and some cheese curds before their set in Minneapolis. The band hit the stage fashionably late. The crowd was going nuts since they were able to see the band backstage getting pumped before coming out. Once Alex came out he scoped out the stage. You could tell right away he likes to interact with the fans. As he stood on stage he reached his arm out disappointed he was not within arms reach of the crowd. That did not stop him! Many concert goers reached right back enticing him to get closer. He made his way by hurtling over giant amps to get to his fans. Then tight roped along the barricade. It was pretty awesome! I would like to apologize in advance. The band is giant and there was no way I was able to photograph each member. Many were hidden in corners of the stage and blocked by countless instruments on stage. I think my favorite part of the show wasn’t so much on stage but out in the crowds. Waaaaaaaaaaaaay in the back is what can only be described as a hippie mosh pit. Numerous fans gathered around dancing in a circle together. It was wonderful to see. Those are my kind of peeps!

Blind Pilot Returns to Lollapalooza!

Blind Pilot promo

Blind Pilot has come a long way from starting as a two man band into a now 6-piece ensemble. Back in 2008 they went on tour with their instruments strapped to their bikes. On that tour they made over two dozen stops along the West Coast up into Portland, Oregon.  That next year they were playing the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco, California and made their debut at Lollapalooza in Chicago.

Lollapalooza welcomes Blind Pilot back to Grant Park  this summer! They are also hitting the road debuting their sophomore album, We Are The Tide. The sophomore album follows their grassroots break-out debut, 3 Rounds and a Sound, that sold over 50,000 albums and was featured in NPR’s “Best Music of 2008” roundup.  That year they also played the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco, California. This Portland-based band is a must see!

Lollapalooza is set for August 3-5, 2012 and tickets are getting very scarce! Check out ticket availability here.

Jack White Headlines Lollapalooza 2012

Jack White Hangout Music Festival Alabama 2012

Jack White is a busy man these days! Not only does he run his own label (Third Man Records), he plays in a slew of bands including the Raconteurs, and formerly the White Stripes, along with taking the production helm for several artists.  He is also on an extensive tour this summer including stops at the Hangout Music Festival and Lollapalooza in Chicago.

White’s current album, Blunderbuss, was released on April 24th on Third Man Records/Columbia Records and has already sold 137,554 copies domestically, debuting at #1 on the U.S. albums chart. It’s also experiences great success by hitting the #1 spot in the UK, Canada,  and Switzerland. If that weren’t impressive enough, Blunderbuss is in the running for the world record of  “the fastest named album in history.” This is pending at the moment, but since we are talking about world records, Third Man Records announced that Jack White has again decided to take on the challenge of getting into the Guinness Book of World Records this time for “most metaphors used in a single concert.”  Jack will continue to attempt this record for the remainder of this summer tour dates.  He also asks for fans not to interfere with his attempts during the shows, as it may led to disqualification.

Jack White will be playing Lollapalooza on Sunday August 5th. Sunday passes are still available!

To witness Jack White’s attempts at breaking the record, pick up tickets to one of the stops on his tour! The full itinerary is below.

Yvette’s Monthly Mixer – Copa!

Yvettes Monthly Mixer Copa Di Vino NRA 2012

Copa brings you fabulous premium wine by the glass without waste, glassware, or time needed to uncork, measure or pour! Copa Di Vino is the first wine by the glass bottled directly into the glass allowing you to conveniently drink wine anywhere with ease!

Enjoy Copa while chillin’ at the beach, at a BBQ, or even during a Hotel stay. Why pay extra for that mini bar when you can bring your own! With Copa’s easy peel-off foil opening and 100% recyclable plastic cup you eliminate the need to buy and clean glasses, monitor pour amounts or have to throw out any unused or bad wine.

Copa Di Vino is distributed in more than 40 states nationwide and has been branded at Getty Museum, Chicago’s Ribfest Festival and Six Flags. Copa! was served on Bourbon Street for the 2011 Mardi Gras celebration and is now the wine of choice for the Cleveland Browns and the Minnesota Vikings.

It’s no wonder Copa! was announced as The National Restaurant Association’s 2012 Food & Beverage Product Innovations Award. Copa Di Vino truly does think outside the bottle!

Currently Serving:
Riesling
Cabernet Sauvignon
Merlot
Moscato
Chardonnay
