CIMM Fest hits Chicago April 18th thru the 21st.
The Chicago International Movies and Music Festival is a four day showcase of films and concerts, Q&A sessions, tech shows and a focus between cinema and music.
There are some Bloodshot tie-ins we wanna alert you to:
Every year, the fabulous Chicago station WXRT asks its listeners to, in true Chicago-style, vote early and vote often for their favorite music of the year.
And this year, they (and perhaps, you) chose JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound's killer cover of Wilco's "I Am Trying Break Your Heart" at #25 in the FAVORITE SONG Category.
Check out all the lists HERE
As we say in these parts , "now DAT'S some votin', good work dere.."
From JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound. No rest for the soulfully wicked:
"Oct 21st in Baltimore was officially the last show of the Want More tour which started in September of 2011 and rolled through October, 20th 2012! Thanks for supporting a great run!!
As of today the band is working towards the new recordings and a new release. We are looking forward to rocking this new record with you right on through 2013.
The Metro show on 11/21/12 in Chicago will feature almost all new music except for a few of the Want More 'hits' and a couple of JCBUS Favs.
Hope you can all make it out"
