On February 25th, Schuba’s Tavern hosted RCRDS, Strange Faces and the main act Cassettes on Tape as a part of their AWESOME “100% Off” series. The series is an innovative idea that allows Schubas to showcase local bands for free. It’s a great way to discover new artists without tapping into your funds. Best of all, the atmosphere is more fun because people are there to support local music rather than to punch you in the nose to get a glimpse of the band. If you ever are looking for something to do, consider checking out a local band at Schubas. I promise, if you try hard enough, you can come up with the funds to get in.

Whether you’re from here or not, it comes as no surprise that Chicago has been a significant music hub for the past decade. With so many bands spawning from one location, it has become a personal quest for college music lovers to find the next big thing, and I think I’ve found it. Lost At Land, a versatile punk band made up of local Chicago college students, has been playing shows all over the city for the past few years. I got a chance to catch up with Keagan Potts, the band’s bassist, and he gives you 4 reasons why you should make a trip to one of their next concerts.
