Halfstack Fall Music Issue: Featuring Fue & Starved Hustle

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

Fall has arrived readers and with it comes some of my most fondest memories. This is by far my most favorite season. Chicago is a beautiful city in the fall and it’s robust with color, people and sounds. I am so excited to share this time of the year and this issue with all of you. The fall marks, not only my favorite season, but one of my favorite annual issues: Halfstack’s Annual Music Issue. This issue we dedicate to all the starving artists, midnight hustlers and creatives trying to make an impact with their craft, music and soul.

This issue is filled to the brim with wonderful features and interviews of local artists, musicians and bands. Our team of writers and photographers were incredibly fortunate to attend some of the hottest musical festivals, intimate shows and high energy venues. Throughout this issue you will get an insiders view of concerts such as Lolla, AVFest/Hideout Block Party, North Coast Festival and so many more. You will also get a front seat at Macy’s Glamorama shot by our talented staff photographer: Perry Fish.

We also had the opportunity to interview some great up and coming stars such as: Elizabeth Lyons from the country music scene, Western Automatic from the alternative scene and Hello Industry from the indie scene. This issue’s main fashion editorial was shot by the team at Pickapose Photography and features the band: Fue and is outfitted by: Starved. A homemade hustle. This was by far one of our most creative shoots aside from our Alice themed shoot 2 springs ago. It’s amazing to me that we are going into year 3 of Halfstack and with each year, we push ourselves to the creative limit. The shoot was inspired by the days of vlaudville and sideshows and the band did a great job channeling their characters. We also had so much fun incorporating themed props from the incredibly vast Zapprops.com. You will also find some great fall themed beauty and grooming product round ups from Beauty Editor: Danielle Hazenkamp, to help you transition to the cooler weather that is bound to find us here in Chicago.

This issue introduces some new writers to all of you.  Feature Editors -Thom Olson and Rob Samuelson have been writing on Halfstackmag.com, but are making their debut in the issue this fall. You can check out Rob’s genuine and in-depth feature on the Roger’s Park neighborhood. Thom introduces us to some local entrepreneurs: Sara Rose of Sara Rose on Oak and the team behind Jimmy Bars. He also offers some humorous insight on the newly updated Great Street Restaurant.

Dana Rettig gives us her insight on new music app from Jinn and Fashion Editor:  Teresa Espinoza highlights local suburban boutique: Galleria Girl. You can also check out her interview with the owner on Halfstack’s Youtube Channel HERE. Also, be sure to check out Culture & Entertainment Editor: Cora Vasseur’s highlights on Chicago’s own: Grammy Camp and artist Hebru Brantley. You can check out my feature of Chicago’s own famous prop house: Zap Props.

I hope you enjoy this issue as much as we enjoyed putting it together. As always, thank you for your support! Don’t forget to keep up with us between issues at: www.halfstackmag.com! Happy Fall Halfstack readers! Download this latest copy HERE.
