The Chicago music scene is crowded. It's gritty. It's completely unforgiving. But one rap artist from the westside of the city refuses to give up. When he's gutpunched, he pops back up. Time and time again. Introducing Saint Millie and "Road to Glory: The Documentary", a project filmed, directed and edited by a three-man RedEye Chicago video crew (Sean Ely, Lenny Gilmore & Ernest Wilkins).

The five-episode docu-series follows unsigned Saint Millie from the streets of Chicago, to small charity concerts, to the Hard Rock Cafe stage and all the way down to Austin, Texas for the South by Southwest Music Festival, in which he sinks his entire savings account into for the minuscule chance of being "discovered." When no venues will let him perform, he grabs a megaphone and performs in the street outside of the bars on 6th Street.

Join RedEye and watch the Chicago artist fight for his dream in ‘Road to Glory: The Documentary’ clips, followed with a performance by the man himself.

FREE show, 18+. RSVP on Facebook. Venue has limited capacity and the show will be first come, first served. Check out the documentary at

On Gringo Star’s latest, liquid melodies cascade through air like a waterfall in zero gravity, brothers Nicholas and Peter Furgiuele and cohort Chris Kaufmann out-of-body—floating apparitions of a band glancing down as their corporeal manifestations radiate celestial blues and psychedelic garage bangers, gritty R&B shuffles and spaghetti-Western weirdness. Floating Out to See could—and should—be the soundtrack to Tarantino’s first sci-fi film.

As the album’s title suggests, Gringo Star are insouciant explorers, tossing the paddles overboard and drifting on the currents of their lackadaisical curiosity across a rippling sonic ocean, out to the far edges of rock & roll. Shot pulsing from a vintage Leslie speaker, their guitars, keys and vocals pirouette across the astral plane, the psychoactive ingredients of their echo-slathered, doo-wop-indebted indie gems. Santo & Johnny, The Stooges, Ritchie Valens, Marc Bolan, Percy Faith, Sam Cooke, the men working on the chain gang—uh! ah!—they’re all here, their electric ghosts reaching across time, tapping Gringo Star on the shoulder like the crossroads devil to Robert Johnson, bestowing secrets, passing torches.

Gabriel Kahane is a songwriter, singer, pianist, composer, devoted amateur cook, guitarist, and occasional banjo player. This year, he made his recital debut at Carnegie’s Zankel Hall in a program devoted to his music. As a songwriter, he’s released two albums, most recently the critically acclaimed "Where are the Arms," hailed by the New York Times for its “extravagant poise and emotional intelligence.”

As a composer of concert works, Kahane has been commissioned by, among others, Carnegie Hall, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, American Composers Orchestra, Kronos Quartet, The Caramoor Festival, and Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, with whom Gabriel toured this spring performing "Gabriel’s Guide to the 48 States," a nearly hour-long cycle on texts from the WPA American Guide Series. Other appearances this season include performances of his orchestral song cycle "Crane Palimpsest" with the Alabama and Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphonies, a recital with Timo Andres at the Library of Congress, and a two-night stand at Ann Arbor’s UMS with the new music ensemble yMusic.

Equally at home in divergent musical realms, Gabriel has performed or recorded with artists ranging from Sufjan Stevens, Rufus Wainwright, Chris Thile, and Brad Mehldau to Jeremy Denk, Alisa Weilerstein, and composer/conductor John Adams.

Based in Brooklyn, but raised in Louisville, singer-songwriter Dawn Landes has been writing songs for most of her life, and already has more than a decade of experience as a professional producer and engineer. After leaving NYU where she studied psychology and literature, Landes began honing her production and engineering skills, working at Stratosphere Sound (owned by James Iha, Adam Schlesinger, and Andy Chase), and at Philip Glass’ personal recording studio, before launching Saltlands Studio in Brooklyn with partners Steve Salett and Gary Maurer.

Her new album Bluebird was produced in collaboration with good friend Thomas Bartlett (known for his work with The National, Sharon Van Etten, Rufus Wainwright, Antony and the Johnsons, and many others), and features contributions from Tony Scherr, Rob Moose, and Norah Jones.

Press coverage of Bluebird will understandably present this album as Dawn’s answer to her ex’s “divorce record”. However, like any great songwriter, she’s abstracting her personal narratives enough to leave them open to interpretation and a larger meaning. Bartlett’s spartan production keeps the vibe intimate, making it easy to connect with these naked and honest songs which manage to rise above the context in which they were written. In the end, the fact that Bluebird is Landes’ way of processing the overwhelming emotions she dealt with after her divorce doesn’t matter – there are two sides to every story, and this is hers.
