Dear Reader music critics,

I'm surprised and a little offended that you guys give Five Style no credit or exposure.

They are undoubtedly Chicago's most interesting and enjoyable Indie Rock Band right now. Some of their songs border on genius in the opinion of myself and others. I would think your paper would recognize this. I saw the show at the Empty Bottle and it is safe to say that Five Style was superior to the Ancient Greeks (who were good), but the Greeks got the write-up and Five Style got jack shit [May 19]. Support this band because I think they are really talented and more music appreciators need to know about them.
