We provide you with information on upcoming bands, band reviews, band interviews, parties, style tips, trend report, and street style.

Stic-of-the-Week was founded in July 2009 by Chelsea Cankar. STIC, standing for first letters of Style and last letters of Music. Bored and uninspired at her day job, and itching to get involved in something she was passionate about, Stic was nothing more than an idea over lunch turned reality. The original was based on the  thinking of how festival fashion had become so popular and how fashion and music parallel in so many ways, and it just spiraled up from there. Having several years experience in magazine publishing, Chelsea was able to apply her knowledge from that, and just learning as she went on from there.

Since leaving her job in magazine publishing over three years ago, she has worked at JBTV putting together special events for the studio, booking bands, and bringing on major sponsors at the studio. She also has managed a woman's and men's boutique called Cityblue in the heart of Old Town Chicago. Pursuing her passion in fashion, she was the key player in styling and running the social media for the company.

Most recently she excepted a job with Universal Music Group, and is the Midwest Marketing Rep., for Interscope Records.
