Local Music Notebook: Twista Is Back, The Orwells Are Here & Chief Keef Is Gone

1. Lady Gaga Steals Keef's Last Shred Of Credibility While Accruing None For Herself.

2. Lane Tech's Recording Studio Gives Pro Music, Mixing Tools To Students.

"Studio 2501 (named for the school address, 2501 W. Addison) is the only high school in the state to offer a sound engineering class," Dave Hoekstra reports for the Sun-Times.

That's pretty cool, but it's still CPS:

"Lane Tech would not disclose the building budget."

Probably embarrassed because other schools have had their music programs gutted.

3. Chicago Airports Get Their Own Radio Station.

"The 24-hour 'AIR Chicago' was created for the Chicago Department of Aviation by Clear Chanel Airports, a division of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc., and features smooth jazz music interspersed with airport traffic and weather reports, business news, information about the airports and advertising," USA Today reports.

Does this mean the end of Terminal Tunes?


4. The Orwells: 'Older Bands Don't Have The Fire We Do.'

That's because . . .


"The [Elmhurst] five-piece have one hell of a hype around them at the moment, but after only graduating from high school this year, few can seem to get over their age," Andrew Trendell writes for GigWise.


The Orwells Don't Want To Grow Up.


At the Yorktown Shopping Mall:


5. Twista At The Terror Dome.

"The track is called 'Intro,' which is the opening track from his upcoming Back To The Basics EP," StupidDope reports.


6. Kim Kardashian Wears Chicago Band T-Shirt On Day Out With Baby North.

7. DeRogatis Begins His Best Of 2013 List.

8. Chicago Corporate DJ.


Comments welcome.
