Chicago South Asian Film Festival Provides a Summer to Fall Movie Oasis

morningamp:

The Chicago South Asian Film Festival kicks off Thursday, September 18 and the AMp invited Deepti D’Cunha, the international film curator and Shalini Trivedi, a festival director, to get the scoop on the best films to catch. Luis Antonio Perez filled in for Brian Babylon today and Molly Adams was glad because Luis is not afraid to indulge a little fawning over a hot dude like Sendhil Ramamurthy.

Empires on Live From Studio 10 (09/14)
227 plays

Since they started, Chicago’s Empires have been committed to a DIY approach to music. That, and their hard work ethic has nurtured their impressive output of anthemic rock albums. It’s these factors that have been the key to the band’s steady climb to success. In a short time they’ve played at Lollapalooza, and made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. The band’s new album is called Orphan (out this month). We’re excited to welcome the guys back in our studio to hear some of the new songs and talk about the new release.

Live From Studio 10 airs Tuesdays at 8pm CST on Vocalo 91.1 FM & 90.7 FM (CHI) / 89.5 FM (NWI) and Vocalo.org. The show features emerging bands and music artists from Chicago and beyond.
