How can you say no? The crowd was smaller than expected at this show, but every person there knew every word. Pure magic. --Dana Moran Chance the Rapper This is bittersweet: the local's major fest debut basically cemented his status as one of Chicago's few through-and-through, naturally talented artists on the rise, whom we likely won't see back here for quite a while.

It was over. It was all over. With 1:47 remaining in regulation of Game 7, the Blackhawks' Niklas Hjalmarsson unleashed a fierce shot past Detroit goaltender Jimmy Howard, giving the Hawks a 2-1 lead and a glimpse of advancement.

If you're a 21st century Chicago artist and your name isn't Kanye, Common, Lupe or Fall Out Boy, your album doesn't debut in the Billboard Top 10. Sadly, it just doesn't happen. The exciting exception is EDM trio and north suburban Northbrook-bred Krewella, whose debut full-length “Get Wet,” anchored by massive singles “Live for the Night” and “Alive,” launched at No. 8 when the album dropped in September.
