While we mention a fair number of musical performances in Slowdown, in a city this big, there are tons we just don't have the room to cover. Oh My Rockness has recently landed in town and is taking strides into that gap, providing a comprehensive list of the shows at which you're bound to find Chicago's hipsters on any given night. While the graphics may be uncomfortably reminiscent of Urban Outfitters, the content is pleasantly utilitarian and on-point. Plus, there are contests, and what self-respecting indie rocker will ever pass up free tickets to see a band she's never heard of?
