  • A college degree is NOT a great equalizer for Black people

    8:16

    Although a college education has provided upward mobility for Americans throughout history, this has not been the case for Black people. Despite gains in education there are many factors that have contributed to the widening of the wealth cap between Black and white people.

    What are your thoughts about higher education? Does this story change your opinion about it at all? Please comment and let us know what you think

    Lyrics:

    First year’s first, I’m a genius
    Drop this and let the whole lab feel it
    And I’m still in the study business
    I could put you down, like a gunner with specifics
    You should want a resident like this
    Break the curve and get scores like this
    PKA, PKC, I got this
    Sphygmoma-what!? Do I put that on the wrist
    Take a 5 hour straight, never chase that
    KDEL like we’re going retrograde back
    Bring the books in, where’s the class at
    Biostats chillin’, you should ace that

    [Chorus]
    I’ll be an MD
    You already know
    I’m looking fresh now
    In my scrubs and my white coat
    I’ll be an MD
    Got this all down cold
    Remember my name
    Now let’s go

    I said, “Grants, I can do this. Netter’s, Ross, I knew this.”
    Can’t stand no haters who doubt that I rule this
    And blood flow restarted, by compressions I started
    Cardiac arrest- let’s ask the Path department
    Get my grade in on time, if it’s not honors, decline
    And if I don’t get it soon I will go out of my mind
    So get my grade in on time, if it’s not honors, decline
    Can’t worry ‘bout no dating, keep my nose on the grind
    Now tell me, who that, who that? That would do that, do that?
    Put those grades above all? I thought you knew that, we do that
    Class of 2018, see the burg' and gold
    We’ve been working on our M.D. with some extra bold

    [Chorus]

    Cram for histo
    Let’s get drunk after mini-boards
    Get the word out
    Feels so good to see friends again
    Yeah, keep on turning it up
    Osteoclast, man they just don’t give a *beep*
    Med school, drinkin’ Starbucks
    Fast-paced, expensive, we never can stop
    Owwww

    Still studyin’, never sleep in
    Got the whole class asking when it'll end
    Have fun? Go out? I’d rather stay in!
    Well I guess I chose the right place then
    It's just the way you like it, huh?
    Pulse so good, she’s just wishing she could bite it, huh?
    Never turn down lunches
    Saving these loans, food budget here is nothing

    [Chorus]

    Who that? Who that?
    N-Y-M-C
    Do that, do that
    Class '18
    Who that? Who that?
    N-Y-M-C

  • All That Light ~ Skye Steele ~ Official Music Video

    3:27

    Director/Choreographer - Megan Schneeberger
    Dancers - Megan Schneeberger, Christopher Knowlton, and Timothy Jackson
    Director of Photography and Lighting Design - Daniel Kullman
    Editor - Mariko Charvat

    Filmed at OuterSpace, Chicago.


    ALL THAT LIGHT

    Yesterday I saw a tree fall in the woods
    I heard the crack and watched it crash
    But of course, this proves nothing.
    And all day long leaves are abducting photons,
    Cruelly conscripting them into the hard life
    Of matter.

    So I guess that makes a forest fire a freedom fighter,
    Tearing through and cutting loose

    All that light.

    And I finally learned how to wake up in the morning
    The secret is go the fuck to sleep at night
    And a little less caffeine and a little less liquor
    All that clean living, I feel great, but
    I guess I'm getting older
    But I still need to get crazy and act out sometimes,
    Get drunk with my friends and stay up all night
    And walk home in the morning feeling alright
    And shake my head and laugh at

    All that light

    From the burning heart of everything
    Is all I see, it isn't you at all,
    It's just light reflecting reflecting
    As we do, invisible and indivisible
    We send light flying all over
    But we're not here at all, baby it's

    All that light.

  • Megan Thee Stallion Is Houstons Best New Rapper: The FADER x WAV Present Frequencies

    3:55

    This is the year of Megan Thee Stallion. After a string of freestyles that the internet couldn't deny, Megan released her debut project, Fever, last week to the joy of Hot Girls around the world. And she did it all while finishing up her third year as a a health administration major at Texas Southern University.

    The FADER and WAV followed Megan during what may have been the most hectic part of her life thus far in the new doc, Megan Thee Stallion Is Houston's Best New Rapper: The FADER x WAV Present Frequencies. Megan says she's well aware of the rich history of emcees who came before her in Houston. But her strongest influence is her mother, the late Holly Thomas, whose style Megan studied on trips to the studio as a kid. Thomas's passion for music lives on in Megan.

  • Hannah Kendall Interview | Identity & Aesthetic: Five British-Caribbean Composers

    35:10

    The British Music Collection and Sound and Music present Kreutzer Quartet violist and researcher Clifton Harrison curating a series of filmed interviews with five composers who have successfully carved their own path in the British contemporary classical music scene. Listen to their stories and gain a deeper understanding of who they are through their work.

    Notes by Clifton Harrison

    Hannah is an incredible music maker. She is a North Londoner born and bred and feels a strong connection with her Guyanese heritage. This is certainly expressed in her compositional style and choice of subject matter. My first encounter with Hannah was in 2016 when she invited me to play viola in her chamber opera The Knife of Dawn. This one-man opera is the story of Guyanese poet and activist Martin Carter (sung by American baritone Eric Greene) and his imprisonment told through a libretto based on his poems. This was an excellent introduction into her sound world. She describes her music as multi-layered and intricate. She says she is influenced by intrinsic rhythms of North London grime and UK garage alongside sounds from the Caribbean and the British modern composition establishment. This film looks at this and more in Hannah’s own words. Find out how her identity informs her aesthetic.

    Elfy of RARE, Shaolin Entertainment (2000 - 2008)

    In his past, he was a member of the rap group RARE of Shaolin Entertainment based out of Milwaukee, WI. A rap trio, who were the most recognized icons of his people and ran the most successful Hip Hop recording studio in the Hmong scene, nationally, on the road traveling and touring, performing and building their careers and pushing through to the mainstream for many years. They've worked alongside and opened for many big name Industry artists, were looked at by several record labels/A&Rs, and have performed at notorious venues throughout the country in which they sold out shows as headliners to as much as 1,400 – 2,200 attendees, thus enhancing the music revolution for the Asian community which garnered Thao several awards and nominations. They are to the Hmong rap scene, what Muddy Waters was to the Blues, what Beatles was to rock, what MJ was to pop and what Jimi Hendrix did to influence music in general. It was a dawn of a new era for us. They made hit songs, specifically the anthem “Hmong Tuag Nthi” that their people will remember and sing for generations on in. They have a list in their own personal category. And as all of their fans have said over and over again, their songs will go down in history and will be remembered 50 years from now as a reminder of the mark they in their community impacting their people. It’s time to pass the torch. May a new anthem be sung. After 10 years, 4 albums, managing 2 other artists with 4 albums and selling thousands on the road, Thao has disbanded with his rap career and is now content with his current Rock band “Elvis Thao and The Creatives” and is also pursuing Acting and Film Producing – look for him. YOU design yourself. Let’s start the movement.

  • What Is This - Luther Barnes & The Sensational Sunset Jubilaires

    5:09

    Luther Barnes & The Sensational Sunset Jubilaires - God Gave Us All He Had
    Audio Cassette Release Date: May 22, 1990
    Award-winning gospel artist Luther Barnes began performing professionally when he was only nine years old. During his long career he has been part of a number of groups, released a long list of albums, had his songs featured in films, and even appeared in off-Broadway plays. He has many talents, including singer, songwriter, and pianist. Luther Barnes was raised in North Carolina as part of a large extended family comprised of many musicians and vocalist. Another love the members shared was of the gospel, in both word and song. When Barnes was only nine, he became part of a group called the Barnes Juniors. It was formed by his father, Reverend F.C. Barnes. Other members were Luther's brothers and one of his uncles. Luther also took part in another family group, the Sunset Jubilaires, and then later in the Budd Gospel Choir. When time came for college, Barnes entered the St. Augustine College located in Raleigh, NC. There he earned a B.A. degree in Music Education. He used that training to become a music teacher at both his former junior high and high schools, and to give private piano and vocal lessons. He has also served as minister of music at his church, and director for On the Rise Youth Choir. Barnes' recording career began in 1987 with the completion of the album, See What the Lord Has Done, released under the Atlanta Records label. Between then and the year 2000, he recorded nearly 20 full-length gospel offerings. Some of the tunes listeners can sample from his albums include It's a Good Thing to Be Chosen, How Can You Walk on By, He'll Come to My Rescue, We Must Be Ready, Sometimes I'm Burdened, Lord I'm Waiting, and So Satisfied.

  • American Campus Communities Celebrating 20th Anniversary

    3:24

    Bill Bayless, president and CEO of American Campus Communities (NYSE: ACC), joined REIT.com for a CEO Spotlight video interview in Chicago at REITWeek 2013: NAREIT's Investor Forum.

    American Campus Communities is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013. Bayless discussed the importance of the company holding its first ever bond offering this year, as well as being named to Forbes magazine's 100 Most Trusted Companies list.

    When we started the company back in 1993, one of the statements in our mission statement was a dedication to excellence and integrity, he said. When we went public in 2004, one of our specific goals was obtaining an investment-grade rating so that ultimately we could issue corporate debt. In doing business with colleges and universities across America, for them, both of those send a great message in terms of the character of the company, especially when they're looking at picking a long-term partner to do housing on their campus. We're very proud of both and think that it really speaks well for the business that we're in.

    American Campus had acquisitions and new development totaling more than $2 billion in 2012, which Bayless called an incredible year for growth. Bayless talked about the outlook for activity when all is said and done in 2013. He said the company is currently in development on $305 million of seven owned properties.

    We see excellent growth on the development front, Bayless said.

    Regarding new acquisitions, Bayless noted that there is approximately $1 billion in assets on the market right now.

    For us, it's always about the quality of growth versus the quantity of growth, he said. Where we end up in the year will be a process after staying true to our process of diligently looking for assets that meet our criteria and executing where it makes sense.

    Bayless cited oversupply of student housing facilities as the greatest threat to American Campus' business.

    We always talk about the great benefit to student housing is not being subject to macroeconomics, he said. It really does come down to supply and demand in each individual market. Enrollments always tend to be steady and resilient. The supply side is where you can get hurt in our business. What we've always done to protect ourselves in that situation is making sure that our assets are located in pedestrian campuses in the infill submarkets with barriers to entry so that when oversupply does occur, it's happening outside of where our properties are located and we're somewhat insulated from that.

  • Kaytlin Millikin - Helen C. Adams Vocal Music Scholarship | Audition #2

    1:27

    Helena Lynch - Singing “The Green Dog” by Herbet Kingsley for the Helen C. Adams Vocal Scholarship.

    ► SUBSCRIBE ◄


    ► ABOUT THE HELEN C. ADAMS VOCAL MUSIC SCHOLARSHIP ◄
    These scholarships will be provided by a partnership between
    RE/MAX Crossroads/First Realty III and Ron Montgomery Motors, whose owners are musicians and dedicated to excellence in music education.

    The winners will be chosen based on vocal achievement only. Awards are not needs-based, and the winner does not have to be majoring in music in college.

    ► ABOUT THE HELEN C. ADAMS ◄
    Helen Adams was a consummate musician who enjoyed playing the piano for everyone. From a young age, her playing opened the doors to easily making friends and meeting people. In answer to questions about how long she had been playing the piano, she would say, “I can’t remember when I couldn’t play.” She was still playing her favorites right up until a few weeks before her death in 2009 at the age of 94.

    Helen had a wonderful musical background and an unusual array of performance experiences. When she was young, she played in dance bands and enjoyed duos with a good friend who also was an excellent pianist. She played for “minstrels” and service organizations and accompanied vocalists of all types. She even regularly accompanied a wonderful marimba player.

    She was the church pianist or organist at her church until way into her 70s, and she continued to play for senior choirs and other groups after that. Those who understand that being an excellent pianist does not necessarily make one a good accompanist will appreciate the fact that she was both!

    No one appreciated that ability more than her daughter, Linda, whom she regularly accompanied for church and civic performances. Her daughter would always say: “Nothing like having your own built-in accompanist!”

    Helen received her undergraduate degree from East Texas State (now Texas A&M at Commerce) and she received Master’s Degrees in three subjects: English, Spanish, and music from what is now Texas A&M at Kingsville. She taught junior high English as her “regular” job, but she was a musician in her bones playing every style of music: from sacred to boogie woogie; from George Gershwin to Burt Bacharach.

    She especially loved the sacred music of Dick Baker and the old standards in popular music. It is no wonder her daughter shared that appreciation for all styles of music and opened scholarship auditions to a wide variety of musical styles.

    One of her last musical performances for a large group of people was at her 90th birthday party. As his gift to Helen, her great grandson Zach surprised her by playing one of her favorites – “Dizzy Fingers” – and then the pair played it together on two pianos for the guests.

    Helen would be very pleased and honored to know that her musical legacy would be an inspiration for scholarships given to outstanding young people who share her love for music.

  • Carolyn Enger Presents: Mischlinge Exposé

    2:34

    Mischlinge Exposé: Shining light on the stories of converts and Mischlinge before, during, and after World War II to soften the lines that divide us.

    Support the project:
    More information:

    Identity is personal; it can also have wider implications. Through my story and by bringing to light Mischlinge and conversion among German Jews, before, during and after the Holocaust, I hope to inspire reflection and tolerance. In my StoryCorps interview, above, you can hear my story in my words. My personal history and my experiences of my family's history are the starting point for this performance project.

    The Mischlinge/Conversion Exposé is a many-layered multimedia performance centering around my family history and personal experience with Judaism. The performance interweaves the music, art and thoughts of prominent converts with testimony of my father, Horace J. Enger’s and my godmother, Rosemarie Steinfeld’s experiences in Germany. Performances of works by Felix Mendelssohn, Arnold Schoenberg and Alexander Zemlinsky illustrate the personal situations described by Rachel Varnhagen and Heinrich Heine. Through the lens of historical context and the artistic and poetic testimony of prominent converts, the performance traces my family story of conversion from Judaism to Christianity and back to Judaism.

    The Mischling Exposé is available as a live performance, a presentation with recorded music and video, and an interactive talk. I am interested in meeting with audiences on college campuses, students at JCCs and high schools with Holocaust Studies and Tolerance programs. I have already presented this performance three times: on 27 April 2014, at congregation Ahavath Torah; at the Puffin Foundation in Teaneck, NJ; and the JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly, NJ, with documents on view.

    I first met Carolyn Enger when I was preparing in 2012 for the Jewish Community Center (JCC), in Tenafly, New Jersey, an artifact exhibit of first-hand documents dealing with the Holocaust, and added her unusual and touching personal story to the exhibit... I can only hope and pray that she will receive all the support needed (financial and otherwise) to bring this moving project into fruition. —Dr. Mordecai Paldiel Formerly, director of the Righteous Among the Nations Dept., at Yad Vashem, and currently teaching the Holocaust at Yeshiva University-Stern College and Touro College, New York.

    An Economy of Means is a kind of companion piece to my percussion trio An Index of Possibility. While Index uses a wide range of materials—glass, metal, wood, ceramic, drums, toys, found objects—to create music that flows freely between distinctive and colorful spaces, An Economy of Means does the opposite, deliberately taking one instrument and making the most of limited resources. With a few simple preparations—tin foil, a manilla folder—and canny use of the vibraphone’s natural colors, the piece traverses a vast and varied terrain, as broad and ambitious as the trio but in a narrower, more focused context. Set in six movements, the nearly thirty-minute piece doesn’t have a specific narrative. Even so, there is always a sense of motion, of drifting from space to space, with little dramas unfolding along the way. Commissioned by Doug Perkins and a consortium of alumni from the Chosen Vale Summer Percussion Seminar, the piece reflects the infectious spirit of friendship and collaboration so strongly felt at Chosen Vale.

    Terry Callier
    Real Name: Terrence Orlando Callier. (Born 24th May 1945 - Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.)

    Profile:
    Jazz, soul and folk guitarist/singer-songwriter.

    For far too long, folk-jazz mystic Terry Callier was the exclusive province of a fierce but small cult following; a singer/songwriter whose cathartic, deeply spiritual music defied simple genre categorization, he went all but unknown for decades, finally beginning to earn the recognition long due him after his rediscovery during the early '90s. Born in Chicago's North Side -- also home to Curtis Mayfield, Jerry Butler, and Ramsey Lewis -- and raised in the area of the notorious Cabrini Green housing projects, Callier began studying the piano at the age of three, writing his first songs at the age of 11 and regularly singing in doo wop groups throughout his formative years. While attending college, he learned to play guitar, eventually setting up residency at a Chicago coffeehouse dubbed the Fickle Pickle and in time coming to the attention of Chess Records arranger Charles Stepney, who produced Callier's debut single, Look at Me Now, in 1962.

    In 1964, Callier met Prestige label producer Samuel Charters, and a year later they entered the studio to record his full-length bow, The New Folk Sound of Terry Callier; upon completion of the session, however, Charters traveled to Mexico with the master tapes in tow, and the album went unreleased before finally appearing to little fanfare in 1968. Undaunted, Callier remained a fixture of the Windy City club scene, and in 1970 he and partner Larry Wade signed on with his boyhood friend Jerry Butler's Chicago Songwriters Workshop. There they composed material for local labels including Chess and Cadet, most notably authoring the Dells' 1972 smash The Love We Had Stays on My Mind. The song's success again teamed Callier with Stepney, now a producer at Cadet, and yielded 1973's Occasional Rain, a beautiful fusion of folk and jazz textures that laid the groundwork for the sound further explored on the following year's What Color Is Love?

    Despite earning strong critical notices and building up a devoted fan base throughout much of urban America, Callier failed to break through commercially, and after 1975's I Just Can't Help Myself he was dropped by Cadet; in 1976, he also suffered another setback when Butler closed the Songwriters Workshop. Upon signing to Elektra at the behest of label head Don Mizell, Callier resurfaced in 1978 with the lushly orchestrated Fire on Ice; with the follow-up, 1979's Turn You to Love, he finally cracked the pop charts with the single Sign of the Times, best known as the longtime theme for legendary WBLS-FM disc jockey Frankie Crocker. He even appeared at the Montreux Jazz Festival. However, when Mizell exited Elektra, Callier was quickly dropped from his contract; after a few more years of diligent touring, he largely disappeared from music around during the early '80s; a single parent, he instead accepted a job as a computer programmer, returning to college during the evenings to pursue a degree in sociology.

    Although he had essentially retired from performing, Callier continued composing songs, and in 1991 he received a surprise telephone call from fan Eddie Pillar, the head of the U.K. label Acid Jazz. Pillar sought permission to re-release Callier's little-known, self-funded single from 1983, I Don't Want to See Myself (Without You). Seemingly overnight, the record became a massive success on the British club circuit, and the singer was soon flown to Britain for a pair of enormously well-received club dates. In the coming months, more gigs followed on both sides of the Atlantic, and in 1996, Callier even recorded a live LP, TC in DC. In 1997, he teamed with British singer Beth Orton, another of his most vocal supporters, to record a pair of tracks for her superb EP Best Bit; the following year, Callier also released his Verve Forecast debut Timepeace, his first major-label effort in close to two decades. Lifetime followed in 1999, and two years later came Alive, recorded live at London's Jazz Cafe. Callier returned in 2002 with Speak Your Peace and 2005 with Lookin' Out. In May of 2009, Hidden Conversations, co-written and produced by Massive Attack, was released on Mr. Bongo in the U.K.; a release in the United States followed in the fall of 2010. Two years later, however, he died from cancer in Chicago on October 27, 2012. Terry Callier was 67 years old. (Source: allmusic.com, by Jason Ankeny).

  • Cora Andres Bisda Plays First Nocturne & Aliwan

    7:39

    First Nocturne by Abelardo
    Aliwan by San Pedro
    Played by Cora Andres at a Benefit Concert for the University of the Philippines Centennial

    Nicanor Abelardo (1893-1934) composed over a hundred kundiman songs before WW II and his redefinition of the kundiman brought this genre to art song status. He studied composition at the University of the Philippines where he became head of the composition department after he received his degree in 1921. His Piano Concerto in B-flat minor (1923) is known to have been the first such work to utilize folk melodies as thematic elements. In 1931, Abelardo enrolled at the Chicago Musical College where he internalized the idiom of the Expressionist School of Alan Schoenberg and Alan Berg. He composed in virtually all genres - zarzuela, opera. operetta, symphony, concerto, sonata, string quartet, suites, fugues, overture, ballad, serenade, art song, character pieces, incidental music, tone poems, dances, and instrumental ensembles. First Nocturne is representative of the Filipino piano compositions during the early part of the 20th century, which were patterned after the European romantic character pieces.

    Lucio San Pedro (1913-2002) known as the composer of the popular lullaby Sa Ugoy ng Duyan and the symphonic poem Lahing Kayumanggi, taught composition at a number of colleges and universities, including the University of the Philippines College of Music, where he served as Chairman of its Composition and Conducting Department from 1970-1973. San Pedro has produced a wide-ranging body of works that include band music, concertos for violin and orchestra, choral works, cantatas, chamber music, music for violin and piano, and songs for solo voice. He was the conductor of the much acclaimed Peng Kong Grand Mason Concert Band, the San Pedro Band of Angono, his father's former band, and the Banda Angono Numero Uno. His civic commitment and work with town bands have significantly contributed to the development of a civic culture among Filipino communities and opened a creative outlet for young Filipinos.

    Drew Schultz & The Broken Habits - Live at 20 Front Street combines soul, jazz, and funk with Motown / Northern Soul classics, original songs, and stories celebrating soul music heroes. The album will be released on all digital platforms in conjunction with a release show at 20 Front Street in Lake Orion, MI on March 16th, 2019.

    At the age of 19, Drew Schultz entered the music industry as the touring drummer with Motown legends, the Four Tops. He has performed on stage with artists including Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Gladys Knight, The Miracles, Dramatics, Contours, Jerry Butler, Harold Melvin's Blue Notes, and many more. Drew's Back To Class project is a series of his own original songs and recordings with 50% of profits benefiting Detroit Public School music programs featuring artists including the Four Tops, members of The Funk Brothers, Melvin Davis, Spyder Turner, Pat Lewis, Carolyn Crawford, Dennis Coffey, Lenny Pickett of Tower of Power / SNL, Joe Pep Harris, Chairmen of the Board, Willie Jones, James Jamerson Jr., Reginald Torian of The Impressions, and many more. As a Pre-Production Engineer for Universal/Motown Records, he has credits on projects by Michael Jackson / The Jackson 5, David Ruffin & Jimmy Ruffin, and the Cellarful of Motown series. His audio production has led to work with Questlove of the Roots during a New York University “Classic Albums” college course, and Maurice White of Earth, Wind, & Fire. He is a published contributor to Modern Drummer Magazine, a Program Manager at the Motown Museum and a college professor of drums, songwriting, and music industry studies at the Detroit Institute of Music Education.

    Recorded on stage in 2018, Drew Schultz & The Broken Habits - Live at 20 Front Street celebrates many of Schultz’s heroes. The album is a combination of songs Drew has written for his “Back To Class” series as well as live renditions of the classic hits by the legends that Schultz has worked with. Interspersed within the music are stories told about Schultz’s career and some of the lessons learned from his idols and mentors. The concert was recorded in front of a sold out crowd at 20 Front Street in Lake Orion, MI. The venue is an award winning intimate concert space that has been voted as one of the top Listening Rooms in the country hosting winners of the Voice, American Idol, and Grammy winning artists just in its first two years.

    The music on this live record is a combination of the hook-oriented songwriting that Schultz strives to create, blended with improvisational solos. In the spirit of the jazz players who influenced Motown’s own Funk Brothers backing band, Drew Schultz & The Broken Habits deftly move through multiple genres and switch between tight grooves and exploratory instrumental improv sections. The Broken Habits consist of some of the Motor City’s finest musicians. Lead vocalist Trish Shandor is an award winning singer and educator who has performed with Gloria Estefan and toured with Ben Folds, while singing in countless groups that cover the spectrum of jazz, pop, classical, broadway, and opera. She has been an artist in residence at the Michigan Opera Theater, worked at the Detroit Opera House, and teaches at Michigan State University’s Community Music School. Guitarist Carlton Washington is a graduate of Berklee College of Music who has been touring the world with Detroit’s Queen of the Blues, Thornetta Davis, as well as performing with icons including Larry McCray and Ian Siegal. He brings a blues sensibility to the Motown and Soul Music performed by the Broken Habits. Bassist Matt Ryan comes from a musical family, and brings his virtuosic improvisation to the group’s jazz/soul sound. Matt’s background as a marching drummer and drum line instructor lend his bass playing a wide rhythmic vocabulary. Keyboardist Mike Harrison is steeped in jazz and classic R&B, and gigs consistently in the Detroit area with groups including his own outfit, Strictly Fine. His versatility on guitar, bass, and vocals allows him to make musical choices that compliment every instrument while also offering inventive solo sections.

    Drew Schultz & The Broken Habits - Live at 20 Front Street will be released on all digital streaming and download platforms in conjunction with an album release show at the 20 Front Street in Lake Orion, MI on Saturday, March 16th, 2019.

    Chicago Named The ‘Rat Capital’ Of The U.S., Study Says

    According to a study by the apartment search service “Rent Hop,” the city received 50,963 rat complaints last year – more than any other city in the country.

    The study also found the number of rat complaints jumped 55% since 2014.

    The study claims “when comparing the number of complaints per 100,000 residents, Chicago topped the list with 1876.09 complaints per 100,000 residents.”

    Most of the neighborhoods with a higher concentration of rat complaints coincide with the neighborhoods with a higher concentration of dog poop.
