The Scene With Seth Fein Of C-U's Accord Venue, Pygmalion Fest & Smile Politely

Apr 20, 2017

This week we have another conversation from Champaign, this time with a self-proclaimed townie who keeps himself more than busy when it comes to creative culture in the Champaign-Urbana area. As Seth Fein tells us in this interview, after a stint running The Accord venue, previously The Highdive, he'll be focusing on other projects, like the online magazine he co-founded, hyper-local "Smile Politely."

Fein also co-founded The Pygmalion Festival, an annual event that showcases local and national touring acts, as well as food, tech and more. Tune in to hear an update on the hand-over The Accord at the end of the month, and what's on the horizon:

Also this week we chat Record Store Day, Dumb Records in Springfield has an all-day roster in the works. Plus an Earth Awareness Fair, wildflower sale at Lincoln Memorial Garden, and much more. Our Song of the Week comes from Greenville, Illinois band Young Eyes.
