Somehow, it's September.
I think the rain this last week has done something to my brain, so thank God there's some sun on this Sunday afternoon to dry whatever it is away; luckily for me, I head to Los Angeles this Thursday and will probably get plenty of it there!
Friday, September 8th, 8:30PM:

An exclusive Caural mix CD benefitting Chicago's homeless
On September 28th, Rock for Kids - a Chicago organization- will hold it's 4th Annual Music Mixer at Smart Bar. To raise money for Youth Jam (its music education program) they've asked a number of artists, DJs, music journalists, and promoters to contribute one-of-a-kind CD mixes which will be silently auctioned at the party, the contents kept secret until the winning bid is placed. With past contributors including Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, and members of Tortoise, these exclusive mixes promise to be diverse and exciting.
