From the outside, at least, it appears as though Mikal Cronin is living the dream. In addition to his ongoing gig as tour bassist in the Ty Segall Band, the Los Angeles-born musician recently released his sophomore album, "MCII," to universally rave reviews. Reached at home in San Francisco, however, the 27-year-old said much of his latest was inspired by lingering doubts about his current career path. "A lot of people [my age] wear fancy clothes ... and buy condos and have kids, and meanwhile I'm in Berlin drinking a beer," said Cronin, who plays two solo shows at Empty Bottle June 11 before returning July 19 for the Pitchfork Music Fest.

Ben Skoda hadn't biked more than 10 miles at a time before the summer of 2010. The only reason he owned a bike in the first place was because he decided to buy one with his $600 winnings from his faculty's “Biggest Loser”-esque contest. He was on a health kick, so why not? The Ukrainian Village resident never imagined he'd be perched on that very bike's seat for seven weeks, pedaling more than 5,000 miles from Seattle to New York City with a Christian fundraising organization called Venture Expeditions.

So few great hard rock bands exist anymore that Middle Class Rut would sound refreshing if they weren't so damn powerful. Rather than a cool breeze, the Sacramento duo - which recently expanded to a quintet on stage - is more like an entire trough of freezing water blasted at your face. It's a wake-up call. The group's recently released “Pick Up Your Head” moves forward from 2010's under-heralded “No Name No Color,” as the new record finds singer/guitarist Zack Lopez covering more varied lyrical and melodic material, while drummer Sean Stockham continues to drive the music with both force and precision.

The ways to tour Chicago are seemingly endless. You can take in the Windy City on a Segway, Helicopter, boat, or by foot. Oh, and there's always biking around the city with a belly full of hot dogs. Fifty Participants will do just that Saturday, embark on a 30-mile journey and making stops at eight of the Chicago's most well-known hot dog joints as part of a unique, hot-dog based tour known as Tour de Franks. Some of the most recognizable stops included Gene and Jude's, Hot Doug's, Flub a Dub Club's and Phil's Last Stand.

In a very amiable statement, John Legend has announced both the delay of his fall tour and his disappointment over it. Legend had been planning for the tour to coincide with the release of his upcoming album, "Love in the Future," but said his time table hasn't worked out as planned. "My team and I have made the agonizing decision to put off the tour until 2013 when we know we will have the new music done and will be ready to fully unveil the creative vision through the album and the live experience," Legend said in his statement.

I'm over in London on bidness, but bidness has taken so little time that mostly I've just been wandering around the city during the day going to museums and whatnot. I love London museums because they're all free (or they have “suggested donations,” which is like asking me to pay taxes for their universal healthcare - screw you limeys! I'll pay exorbitant amounts for crappy coverage and trot around your museums as I damn well please!). I feel very much like I'm in a sweeps episode of my own life, touring the birthplace of the Anglo-Saxon diaspora and subsequent world order, keeping an eye out for Kate Middleton, accidentally tipping baristas the equivalent of $8 because all these little coins are confusing as hell.

Anne Gold is two weeks away from giving birth and yet this weekend, she's set to invite dozens of strangers into her house to, well, check things out because John Issa, the guy who designed the place, wants to show off his handiwork. “John asked us to participate in the tour, and he and his family have been very nice to us, and I respect them, so we agreed to allow the tour, despite the bad timing,” she said. Gold's home, on a triangular lot in Lakeview, is one of six that will be part of the Modern Home Tour on Saturday.

Bars and Chicago history go hand in hand. That's probably what makes the Chicago History Museum's tour of Chicago's Greatest Dive Bars such a success. Described as the perfect education and social cocktail, Chicagoans and tourists who take the tour--the first of which is Friday--will learn about history, meet other like-minded folks and enjoy a drink--or two. The tour heads to some of the city's dive bars, where attendees will learn the history behind moonshine, bathtub gin and other historic homemade drinks.  Liza Garibay, programs manager at the museum, said the idea was inspired after collecting historical data on bars in Chicago over the years.
