Last year, with help from filmmaker Christoph Green, Brendan Canty of Fugazi produced a documentary of some DC-based bands playing in a local, soon-to-be demolished home. Soon, the pair will release the second installment of their burgeoning series, this time showcasing acts from (and a house in) Chicago. Burn to Shine 02 features peformances by Wilco, Tortoise, the Ponys and others, and, although it won't ship until next week, it's now available for pre-order. You needn't wait, however, to hook your monitor up with a new desktop image; check out the gorgeous preview photos here.
