Chicagoan Sam Prekop is a jack-of-all-media: you probably know him best as a musician, but he's a visual artist, as well. (And, by golly, did one of his photographs make a gorgeous prize at our recent anniversary party!) Post Sea and Cake, he's gone solo, and his latest, Who's Your New Professor, has managed to get props from Pitchfork. Prekop's out on the road right now, touring behind the record, and he'll be in Boston tomorrow. As such, Beantown's Weekly Dig runs this nice little interview in which he discusses his hometown and transcending its influence on his music. (Updated, because I'm totally daft and forgot: we ran this audio interview just last month.)
