Attitude with substance. That's Newcity. We offer up a fresh take on culture and city flavored by a lifelong love of the metropolis we cover. With a combination of in-depth reporting, vivid profiles and sassy commentary on the issues that keep Chicago percolating, Newcity lives as a kind of collective urban diary. And tour guide. When readers climb between our provocative covers, they find a waking dream of film, theatre, art and concert reviews, previews and features -- as well as the city's most comprehensive and user-friendly arts and entertainment calendar. And Newcity is easy to find, with more than 1,500 distribution points in Chicago and 35 suburbs, reaching more than 150,000 readers each week.

Add the spunkiest comic strips around, an insatiable literary appetite, thoughtful notes on the art of eating and some of the city's liveliest and best-read classifieds, and you'll see why Chicago can't get Newcity out of its heart, or head.

“I met him in Bloomington, right around 1997, when his first record came out,” Jason Evans Groth says. “I worked at the student radio station [at Indiana University] and I remember playing that record a lot.
