Local Music Notebook: Into It: Sidewalk Chalk; Over It: The Orwells vs. Sound Man

1. How Vermont's Rebel Yell Shaped the New Record From Chicago's Into It. Over It.

Here they are playing a song from that record in Orlando on Sunday night:


2. "[Chicago-born jazz saxophonist Jon] Irabagon will open his fascinating box of musical tricks at the Levontin 7 club in Tel Aviv on Sunday and Monday (both 8 p.m.), alongside a couple of heavyweight collaborators in the form of bassist Mark Helias and drummer Barry Altschul."

Here he is in Brooklyn in February:


3. Smoking Popes Drummer Excited About New Band.

Here they are in Barrington in February:


4. "A Chicago beatmaker/producer, a New York bassist, a global TV star, and a Kiwi guitarist - they didn't entirely mean to form a band, but the music they made while hanging out as friends was too exciting to leave alone."

Here they are in London last month:


5. Watch The Orwells Fight With The Sound Man At Dallas Gig.


6. How Three DePaul Students Became Concert Photographers.


7. "The concept for Chicago-based band Sidewalk Chalk sounds almost gimmicky at first blush: eight musicians, including a jazz vocalist, a rapper, a tap dancer and a horn section, joining forces to fuse the genres of hip-hop and jazz."

Here they are in Durham last October:


8. Love Of Music Leads To Teaching Career In Chicago For Gibson City Man.


On the road . . .

* Negative Scanner is in San Diego next week.
