For the better part of the past decade, horror fans in and around the Chicago area have been attending the annual 24-hour film festival known as THE MASSACRE each and every October. With the spooky Fall season close at hand (my favorite season of all), The Massacre will return once more, moving to a larger location - The Portage Theater (4050 N. Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60641) on October 20th. Presented by Movieside, as always, The Massacre (Get tixRSVP on Facebook) will boast round-the-clock feature films, vintage trailers, vendors, special guests, a costume contest, zombie make-up station, a charity auction for Vital Bridges, and more.  Having attended several of these myself, I heartily recommend checking it out.  Full details below...

The Warner Sound continues their string of exclusive ''Live Room'' performances this week with a set from ED SHEERAN, recorded live at Hinge Studios in Chicago. You can check out his Nina Simone cover, "Be My Husband" below, or scroll down for his full performance. Weird sidebar? A lifetime ago (11-12 years or so) I interviewed with Hinge producer/engineer Craig Bauer for an internship. I ended up pursuing film classes at the time instead of audio production.

About a month or so ago, while perusing Facebook and probably posting The Rock Father™ propaganda wherever appropriate, a message appeared to my attention from a gentleman named Crusty Booger. Little did the moisture-devoid poster know, but I was already somewhat aware of his rock prowess. Somewhere deep within the depths of Berwyn, Illinois - home to Horrorbles, Svengoolie, and the late Spire (a stack of impaled cars) is THE BOOGER PLANT - the sonic batcave of THE BOOGERS, purveyors of kid-friendly punk rock jams.
