Where to sell used goods locally?

I would like to get rid of some decent electronics that are used but probably still have some value. (55" TV, laptops, etc).

Anyone know of a good place around Pilsen / Bridgeport that buys and resales used goods? (aside from Craigslist, etc)

With Nightmare Logic, Power Trip’s crossover thrash unites doomed masses in celebration

Fri 11/24, 8:30 PM, Thalia Hall, 1807 S. Allport, $30, $25 in advance, 17+

    With Nightmare Logic, Power Trip's crossover thrash unites doomed masses in celebration
    Power Trip have long produced crossover thrash for the tattered, sleeveless Cro-Mags T-shirt wearer in all of us-and with their recent sophomore album, the Dallas dudes prove it. Since its release in February, Nightmare Logic (Southern Lord) has been universally regarded as a triumph of dystopic metal, a record that has brought together all adrenaline junkies who require a little grime and sweat in their riffs.

Lights Out

Most of the street lights on Paulina St. between 18th St. and Cermak Rd. are out. Anyone know why?
The area around Cooper School is especially dark. I've seen groups of young girls and elderly women walking cautiously in the area, while groups of young men linger about.
There is some construction going on with the roads (sewers) but it can't be impossible to have some temporary lights for safety.

Brooklyn pizza mecca Roberta's hosting Pilsen pop-up

Roberta’s at Dusek’s, 1227 W. 18th St., 312-526-3851

    Brooklyn pizza mecca Roberta's hosting Pilsen pop-up
    Gather round, friends, and let me tell you about the siren song of Roberta's pizza. As a former Brooklyn dweller, I'll have the occasional sense memory of the Bushwick pizzeria's highly craveable, wood-fired crust mimicking impossibly chewy-and-crispy Neopolitan crusts, with topping combinations that speak to New York bravado: radicchio, pancetta, scallion and jalapeno; or onions, capers, pork sausage, mozzarella, and jalapeno; or spicy soppressata and honey.

    Anti-Gentrifiers Say New Pilsen Restaurant Puts 'Our Lives ... In Danger'
    PILSEN - Activists demonstrating how gentrification has changed Pilsen clashed with the management of a soon-to-open, high-end eatery on 18th Street in a confrontation that led the restaurant to call police. The confrontation unfolded early last week as members of ChiResists and other anti-gentrification groups joined with the Los Angeles-based Defend Boyle Heights in a tour of the neighborhood that was recorded on Facebook Live.

Indie stalwart Ted Leo returns with The Hanged Man, his first album in seven years

Sun 11/12, 8:30 PM, Thalia Hall, 1807 S. Allport, $20-$25, $18 in advance, 17+

    Indie stalwart Ted Leo returns with The Hanged Man, his first album in seven years
    For much of the aughts Ted Leo & the Pharmacists found themselves in the unusual position of being beloved avatars of the indie-rock scene. The group wasn't as commercially successful as other acts that emerged from this broad milieu, but their sophisticated, punk-driven, oft-political songs had a scrappiness to them that spoke to the genre's underdog spirit, and had an unexpected crossover appeal.
