Chicago in the 90s

Digging Your Scene - Roundtable

Our first Digging Your Scene roundtable takes us to the bands, venues, record stores, legacy and more of Chicago in the 1990s

Last year we had a lot of fun (and learned a lot) during our Australian music of the 90s episode. In fact, we had so much fun, we decided to turn it into new series we’re calling “Digging Your Scene,” where we explore a city or region that made an impact on alternative and indie music in the 1990s.

To kick off the series, we’re heading to a city once described (like a few others) as “the next Seattle,” Chicago, Illinois. To help us getting dig deep into the Chicago music scene, we’ve invited back Andy Derer of the Chicago-based Andy Derer Show podcastChicagoist Senior Editor Jim Kopeny and Annie Zaleski, writer for AV ClubSalon and more, to talk the history, the bands, the venues, the record stores, the legacy and more of Chicago.
