A new year means a new you  ­— or so every resolution promises. Instead of going into total black bear hibernation mode to survive every polar vortex or ice storm Mother Nature decides to throw at you, you’ve whittled down your binge-watching to just four hours per day to make time to sweat it out a...

The easiest way to assure that your Halloween party isn’t lame is to ban “Monster Mash” from the playlist. Indeed, it might be best to avoid all traditional Halloween music, otherwise you might as well start bobbing for apples and telling spooky stories. Congratulations — you’ve successfully repl...

As the sun begins to set earlier and I’ve permanently dug out my winter coat, I cannot help but feel like it’s all downhill from here. After last winter, even the mere mention of cold weather is making me question whether I can possibly handle another winter in Chicago, and I'm sure I'm not the only ...

But beyond the big acts of today hailing from our city—such as Kanye, Wilco or The Smashing Pumpkins - many up-and-coming acts are currently making their rounds in local clubs, bars and underground spaces...

This week's DeJamz theme is, admittedly, a little weak. It's that time of year again, when deadlines are suddenly around the corner and I increase my caffeine consumption by a factor of 10. I'm talking about finals, and I'm sure I'm not the only one for which these next two weeks will be a doozy. So,...
