Local Music Notebook: Boogie Woogie Fall Out Boys

A loose collection of whatnot.

1. Despite Pete Wentz telling fans recently not to hold their breath about a Fall Out Boy reunion, the band is back with a new single and an album (Save Rock And Roll, ugh, from a band whose celebrity bass player married Ashlee Simpson) in the can. Personally, I don't care a rat's ass about Fall Out Boy, but for posterity, here they are at their "surprise" show at Subterranean on Monday night.


2. "In a series of investigative reports for the Chicago Sun-Times that began in 2000, which eventually numbered more than a hundred stories and which remain unchallenged to this day, this reporter, his former partner Abdon M. Pallasch, now a top spokesman for Gov. Quinn, and numerous other colleagues at the newspaper consistently documented that Kelly abused his position of wealth and fame to pursue illegal sexual relationships with underage girls, leaving dozens of ruined lives in Chicago's African-American community in his wake," Jim DeRogatis wrote on his WBEZ blog last week.

"That seems to matter not a whit to the promoters of Chicago's Pitchfork Music Festival, who have booked Kelly, along with Bjork and Belle and Sebastian, to headline the annual music festival in the West Side's Union Park from July 19 to 21."

Plus, Bjork and Belle and Sebastian?

But seriously, WTF, Pitchfork?

3. UPDATE: Muddy Waters' Home Safe From Demolition.

4. The last Andrews Sister died last week and I couldn't help but be reminded of the classic "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," who hailed from "Chicago way" and which is on the Beachwood jukebox. Beyond that, check out this stellar performance from Abbott & Costello's 1941 Buck Privates

And now the company jumps, when he plays reveille.
