I've got a whole city to hold down

New Kids on the Block

Welcome to Chicagomuzik, a new blog devoted to covering the artists, albums, shows, venues, labels, and media that make up the Chicago music scene. After all, what the world needs now is another new blog, right?

Well, actually, we think it does. Lots of people write about Chicago musicians, shows, and the music industry, but no one (well, that we know of) does it in an interactive, daily, online venue devoted exclusively to the topic. Likewise, there are several online forums where the local scene is discussed, but none of them (to the best of our knowledge) offers editorial content. We aim not to compete with any of the above, but to draw on the strengths of both.

Because the average life expectancy for fledgling blogs is less than that of a pop star's Vegas wedding vows, we make no promises as to how frequently this site will be updated or how long this venture will last. It's safe to say, however, that the more YOU participate, the more likely our survival becomes. So please: stop by, drop a line, check out the links, tell your friends. We appreciate it, and hope you will too.
