Kids These Days Appear In Performance, Interview Clips From Festivals And More

Posted in Elephilms,Kids These Days,The Music Garage,Young Wonder by Jaime Black on August 31st, 2011

Kids These Days

Given the act’s prolific video output and live performance schedule this year, one has to wonder when the members of Kids These Days find time to sleep. Keeping in line with the group’s high profile summer is the announcement that the young outfit will perform as one of many local bands at The Hideout Block Party next month on September 24th. The band just last week played a set at a different type of local event, The Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival. Bucketfeet and Young Wonder both provide a look at the fest, immediately following the group’s recent CVU Lollapalooza podcast.

CVU92 – Kids These Days @ Lollapalooza

And speaking of Lollapalooza, KTD materials from that event continue to surface, with the group’s FM News 101.1 interview with journalist Janine Schaults directly below, followed by a look at the act’s post-Lolla Hard Rock Cafe performance.

Next, and much like Hey Champ, the group is featured on two installments of MGTV, which stands for Music Garage TV. Watch both chapters in that video series below.

Finally, last and certainly not least, is impressive live video of the group’s Macie Stewart mere days ago at The Bucktown Arts Festival, courtesy of Elephilms.

Hey Champ Featured In Music Garage TV Web Series

Hey Champ

CVU regulars Hey Champ are the focus of an early episode of the MGTV web series, which stands for Music Garage TV and features a look at artists who record and rehearse within the facility. Music Garage of course was recently announced as the new recording residency of Dynasty Podcasts. The clip finds the trio rehearsing their track “Cold Dust Girl” with a series of separate interview segments. Watch the first entry in Hey Champ’s MGTV series below, and catch the group live this Saturday, September 3rd at Cobra Lounge for a North Coast Music Festival after-party.

This week on the extra sized 100th episode of the ChicagoVerseUniteD audio podcast: Chris Payne! In an interview recorded at Chicago’s Music Garage, the new home of the Dynasty Podcast network, the former Local 101 host looks back at his career in radio, how he got his start in the industry, and what brought him to Chicago. Payne also reflects on his ten year run as host of the late great Q101′s Local 101, being on air last month to close down the station’s two decade run, and whether Q101′s last broadcast was really his last, as well. Find that podcast below, following video from the interview, in which Payne recalls shrugging off Disturbed‘s David Drainman during the band’s early days.

That podcast will drop before the end of this week.

This partnership comes off the end of Black’s thirteen year career at the late great Q101, the last ten of which was spent as producer of Chicago music program Local 101. In 2005, he launched Dynasty Podcasts, Chicago’s first podcast network focused on music and nightlife culture. In 2009, Black launched the ChicagoVerseUniteD podcast series, which features interviews with the premier talent and tastemakers in the Chicago music community.

Dynasty Podcasts will celebrate its six year anniversary at the end of this month at Jaime Black’s residency, The Streets Are Hot Tonight, Pilsen’s only monthly indie party. The event happens at Simone’s (960 W. 18th Street) this Sunday, August 28th, and features sets from Black and DJ Trancid, whose latest offering, Abstract Science Radio Mix, can be found below.
