///Stereogum posted Paste Magazine's top 40 music venues, which included both old and new venues alike. The unranked list was determined based on suggestions from Paste's readers combined with the "history, setting, sound, character, comfort, atmosphere, vibrancy, uniqueness and their roles in helping launch careers." Chicago made the list once with Schubas. No Metro, Empty Bottle, or Beat Kitchen. What's the best Chicago venue?
///Playback St. Louis picked their Top 25 Overlooked Album of the Past Decade. While The Dismemberment Plan and Flaming Lips are really no surprise a #25 spot for Project 86's Drawing Black Lines is both surprising and right on. I would have overlooked them while making a similar list. Many of the other artists have 'influential' on their side, while Project 86 had one solid album is a deteriorating genre.
