Coachella Could Be Headed To New York City

According to multiple reports, AEG, the guys behind Coachella, are vetting a park in Queens for a brand new musical festival called “Panorama”.

This isn’t AEG’s first dip into the NYC festival market. They launched “All Points West” festival back in 2008 but ended up shutting down the fest after just 2 years.

Reports say the festival would kick off in June of 2016, which put its right on the heels of fellow NYC festival “Governor’s Ball”. We’ll have to wait and see if two festivals can co-exsist with such little time between them.

We’ll be keeping an eye out for any more details, including a lineup, as they become available.

Opening tonight and running until November 1st is Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare haunted house in Villa Park.

The Local Tourist posted a photo preview of what you can expect if you’re brave enough to experience the nightmare and we’re officially creeped out.

Last year the haunted house drew heat after announcing they included a clown room featuring a character that was shockingly similar to Chicago-area serial killer John Wayne Gacy.

While there’s no sight of a Gacy-like character in the photo preview, there seems to be more than enough killer clowns to go around.

A photo of a small child wearing a black trash bag as a poncho is making its way around the internet.

According to Breitbart, the child is part of the Chicago Public School system and is also a non-verbal epileptic.

Apparently the mother of the child found her son wearing a trash bag when she visited his classroom at Wentworth Elementary on the City’s South Side.

The teacher claims she put the bag on the child to prevent saliva from dripping onto his shirt and the child’s mother claims her son was put in a bag again the very next day.

Chicago Public Schools released a statement to WGN about the incident saying:

“We work to ensure all students are comfortable in their learning environment. This incident is inexcusable and CPS has launched an investigation. We will take all appropriate actions to ensure this issue is resolved and prevented from happening again.”

Justin Bieber Gets Told To “Wear Condoms” On Q101

15-year-old Justin Bieber received some sage advice from Q101 in an interview back in 2010.

While at the Grammy’s in 2010 Bieber sat down with Tim Virgin and Q101 to talk about his upcoming second album.
