When you’re building an enterprise social network at a large company and aiming to make your organization more social and collaborative, one of the most important things you should do is surround yourself with smart people who have done or are doing the same thing as you’re aiming to do. That’s why I’ve […]
Yes, we are. We’re getting closer to doing actual real scientific experiments at concerts. I’m also excited to tell you what I saw because it pushes our experiments forward too. I say this because during my time at Pitchfork Music Festival I had the pleasure of going into the eMusic Eletromusical Energy Visualizer to see how certain […]
Well, this is a fun continuation of our ongoing White Stripes experiment. Of course it’s only Jack White attempting a new world record as he voyages out in the wake of his new album Blunderbuss. Here’s the news according to a press release that I received and chuckled through as I read the details […]
In case you’re wondering what’s going on with the site, we wanted to tell you that over the next couple of days we’re redesigning Live Fix, so you might see things a little out of sorts. We apologize for the blog dust and switching around, but we promise things will be improved and back to […]
What happens when two concert fans team up to embark on a month-long quest to test the limits of their love for live music?
Yesterday, Colleen and I ran in the Hot Chocolate 5k in downtown Chicago with 30,000 other crazy people in 30 degree weather.

Continuing our series on virtual concert experiences, here’s news about Bon Jovi hosting the first ever live-streaming concert using YouTube’s new Moderator Tool, which will allow fans to help shape the set list for the band’s upcoming show.
This “failed stage dive” video has been circulating the web for the last few days and it brings up a very important topic: the art of stage diving. But I warn you… what we’re about to discuss is dangerous and extremely liberating.
Yes, a lot of painful moments can happen on stage, but traveling to and from shows can be just as dangerous for bands. It’s been over nine months, since Chicago-based orch-pop band The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir was involved in a terrible crash last year while in route to tour their latest album … and […]
Ever wonder what goes through a band’s mind while they’re playing on stage? Do they think about the crowd in front of them? Do past shows musically or psychologically impact future shows? Or is each show it’s own unique journey of new sounds, senses and experiences? For Brooklyn-based indie rock band The Fiery Furnaces it’s […]
Reggie’s music venue in Chicago is looking for street teamers to help promote shows. Are you game? Get more info after the jump.
Over the last three years, Rock the Bells has been the scene for some of our best moments here on Live Fix. And now that Guerilla Union announced the info about the “classic album” headliners for this summer’s tour dates, I’m feeling both excited and somewhat bummed out.
Since I was out seeing Tim Fite last night, I just now got done watching the final episode of LOST. I’m not even going to try to tell you what I think about how the whole thing ended (or didn’t.) But I will tell you something else about LOST.
This Friday May 21st, our friends at Gapers Block are celebrating their 7th anniversary with a party in Chicago at Metro. The show will bring together a mix of soul, pop and punk tunes from some of Chicago’s finest indie bands.
