Sing and Sway with Rhye at the Vic on Saturday

Categorized Under: Music No Commented

by Marisa Ruiz (@MarisaVictoria)

Mike Milosh and Robin Hannibal of Rhye

Music from Rhye evokes the the mood to slip into something slinky and take slow sips of the smoothest 12-year whiskey your money could buy. The coupling of Canadian singer Mike Milosh’s androgynous lilt with the mastery of Danish instrumentalist Robin Hannibal adds up to sultry jams that make you want to sway with your eyes closed. Those in attendance at this duo’s upcoming show at The Vic on Saturday, October 25th will have the chance to do just that.

Rhye’s 2013 debut effort, Woman has been a tremendously well-received work of art, earning high praise from the likes of Pitchfork, SPIN and Rolling Stone. That’s no easy feat for any artist’s first release. Perhaps the mysterious tease of how the songs were first released aided with drawing in such notable attention. Milosh and Hannibal mindfully released tracks without revealing who was behind the vocals. “We never had any big grand plan [by not revealing our faces],” says Milosh. “I just didn’t really want to lead with my face. It was nice to have people just experience the music without knowing what I looked like.”

Audience members at The Vic on Saturday will be able to enjoy the live experience of the songs of Woman; including the heart-melting “Open” and the groovy and upbeat jam “Last Dance”. Milosh shared with Broke Hipster that he will also be weaving in three modified songs from Jetlag, the record from his self-titled music project that he works on in addition to Rhye.

There’s still a chance to grab your tickets to the show. Make sure you smell extra nice. Someone might try and snuggle with you during the show.

Domino’s Offering $1 Pizzas for 100 minutes on Saturday, 10/18

Categorized Under: Food, free food No Commented

by Marisa Ruiz (@MarisaVictoria)

PizzaaaaaaWhen I heard this news, I literally had to think twice and ask if today was April Fools Day or not. Lucky for all pizza lovers of our fair city, it is totally October and this eye-widening deal is legit. In honor of celebrating their 100th location in Chicago, Domino’s is offering a one-topping medium pizza on Saturday, 10/18 for 100 cents (which your grammar school education might remind you is $1, y’all!)

In the spirit of consistency, the offer will run for precisely 100 minutes, starting at noon and ending at 1:40 p.m. at every location in the city. Before you start clearing room in your fridge to stock up on pizza for the apocalypse, know there’s a limit of 5 per customer. (Apologies on their behalf if that makes you feel like this.)

Also, Domino’s has that rad little pizza tracker on their web site – so you can stare at your screen with your mouth watering until that bargain pizza shows up at your door. You can check out which location delivers to you on the locations tab of their web site.

Get after it, pizza fiends! And tip your delivery guys the same (if not more!) as you would for a normal price. Something tells me they’re going to be doing a LOT of hustling in those 100 minutes!

With cheesy love and pepperoni dreams,
