SHARE We promise, this is not an RIAA sting

Nowadays, you’re behind the times if you hear an album for the first time on the day it is released. But there’s so much music out there, it’s hard to know which of the many available leaks are worth your time. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone made the choice for you? Decider does, and it will be that person (or entity, if you want to get technical about it). Along with the Empty Bottle, Reckless Records and WHPK, the Onion-endorsed site presents “The Weekly Leak” each at Sonotheque, 1444 W. Chicago.

The listening party will preview hot upcoming releases in their entirety every Monday at 9 p.m., for free. The events also include ticket giveaways and the chance to own the albums a day before everyone else who hasn’t already downloaded them illegally.

Tonight’s playlist:

Pan American – “White Bird Release”

The Fall – ” Transfusion”

Black Lips – ” 200 Million Thousand”
