Horrible Horoscope: Sagittarius

Mason Johnson knows nothing about horoscopes or astrology. Seriously. When he was six, his mom thought it was funny to make him stick his head out the car window and scream, “What’s your sign?” at women walking by. That is the extent of his experience. Also, Mason is an Aquarius… ladies.

Chicago Cupcake: Sweet Treats On Wheels

Chicago Cupcake’s cupcakes are so good, which in the case of cupcakes often means so sweet that one was easily enough. You won’t be able to hop into a shop or bakery and get one of these though.

Guide To Pitchfork Music Festival

Having been running music festivals since 2005 (R.I.P. Intonation Festival!), Pitchfork is a saavy crew of promoters at this point. No longer the minor league for Lolla, the fests now regularly trade headliners (Hot Chip and Feist have both played Lolla previously; Vampire Weekend are pulling off the rare Pitchfork-Lolla-Pitchfork appearance) and the audience might be less 20-something face-painted scenesters and more 30-year-olds with blankets. But audience-schmaudience! Let’s talk about the entertainment.
