Chicago rapper Trell Love answered our Chi-Tunes questionnaire . Do the same and your band could appear in RedEye! What makes your live show great? Fans have your material in their iTunes and always wonder what it's like to see you in person. When they come out to see me live it gives them a chance to feel the energy and passion I get from the songs I make. That energy spreads through the room like wildfire. They can see more of my personality and participate because I'm very interactive with the crowd and always attempt to do the unexpected.

Southport Ave. 773-525-2508 The beautiful wood-accented back room of this hundred-year-old building is one of the city's best places to catch touring and local acts before they get big, while the front bar area serves up a mean mac 'n' cheese.

Clark St. 773-549-2050 Refreshingly unpretentious, this beat-up bar is the perfect place to escape from - or mentally prepare for - the insanity of Wrigleyville with a game of a pool.

" Yet in late 2011 the current Lakeview resident somehow found herself weighing the pros and cons of each program after being selected to appear on both.
