Chicago rockers Brain Vacation answered our Chi-Tunes questionnaire . Do the same and your band could appear in RedEye! What makes your live show great? For us, probably the part where we get drunk and play really loud music. For you, the fans, probably the part where you get drunk and hear really loud music.

***1/2 (out of four) Daft Punk has always made music that contemplates our relationship with technology, and much of what they foresaw has happened: Our loves are digital (i.e. OkCupid) and so is our music (i.e. Skrillex).
