Car broken into

My car was parked near the viaduct on Fuller St., just off of Archer and Loomis. Someone took a big heavy rock and smashed my passenger side, back, window. They rummaged through my truck and stole my brand new vacuum! This is unreal. It's never ending with cars being broken into and theft that occurs on this block. There are a few homeless people that sleep and hang out under the viaduct but of course no one saw anything! This occured between 7:30am-10am today, March 23rd.

  • Normally they break into vehicles when the item is visible but in your case it wasn't. Sounds like someone seen you put the vacuum in the trunk and took the opportunity. Sorry that happened tell the police and see what they can do if anything.

Alt-country icons Son Volt remain a model of consistency even while borrowing from the blues

Sat 4/1, 8 PM, Thalia Hall, 1807 S. Allport, $27-$37, $25 in advance, all-ages

    Alt-country icons Son Volt remain a model of consistency even while borrowing from the blues
    Jay Farrar titled the first new Son Volt studio album in four years Notes of Blue (Thirty Tigers), and he's explained that the record was inspired by the spirit of the blues, with certain songs employing tunings used by the likes of Skip James and Mississippi Fred McDowell.

On the new Heartless, Pallbearer add rock heroics to their mournful doom

Fri 3/31, 8:30 PM, Thalia Hall, 1807 S. Allport, $19-$24, $16 in advance, 17+

    On the new Heartless, Pallbearer add rock heroics to their mournful doom
    The consensus on Pallbearer's new third album, Heartless (Profound Lore), seems to be that the Arkansas doom-metal quartet have finally unmasked themselves as a prog band. But even if you're one of those benighted souls for whom "prog" is a four-letter word, you needn't be alarmed-the shift is more of degree than of kind.
