The phenomenal suburban Chicago band Take the Reins joins me for dinner at Hamburger Heaven in Elmhurst (281 N York Rd, Elmhurst, IL 60126).

  • The mystery of an olive burger: SOLVED.
  • The untouchable year Take the Reins is having.
  • Take the Reins history.
  • "Addiction by Subtraction" and its vinyl badassery.
  • Is "Addiction by Subtraction" addiction themed?
  • Elmhurst: The City of No Mufflers.
  • People suck on the road. Specifically, River North during rush hour.
  • Road rage gone wrong.
  • The Take the Reins live itinerary, including April's opening slot for Lucky Boys Confusion at Metro.
  • Working with "Mr. Precision" and AM Taxi/LBC's Adam Krier on the band's sound.
  • LBC's Adam Krier: Does he actually like me?
  • The hindsight and frontsight of root beer floats.
