    In today’s über-connected world, it’s easy to become inured by the nearly endless procession of cookie-cutter bands on the Web. But when a breath of fresh air like Alt-J comes along, it’s proof positive that great music stands out on its own merits. In almost no time at all, the Leeds, UK-based quartet has captured the ears of millions of music lovers, with each gig playing to ever-larger sold-out crowds. On Alt-J’s recently completed U.S. tour, the band counted on… View this post

    After 18 years at their Glenview stronghold, Gand Concert Sound (GCS) has relocated to a new warehouse that quadruples their space, doubles their docks, and adds a rail spur. “We have been busting at the seams for the last few years and started looking for more space closer to O’Hare International Airport,” states Gary Gand, President. “Real estate being in a slump allowed us to scale up square footage without taking on more financially.” The new GCS space features a… View this post

    A concert sound system is, in reality, two completely separate sound systems, joined at the hip by a split snake. Each system requires a skilled engineer, but the skill-sets between the two differ vastly. The thing that baffles me is how ill regarded the position of monitor engineer is among my brethren. It can be easily argued and defended that the monitor engineer works twice as hard as everyone else on the crew, unless he/she is lucky enough to have… View this post
