Illinois swept Penn State this weekend to grab a share of the Big Ten lead. They are 11-4, as is Ohio State, and Minnesota and Indiana are each a half-game back at 10-4. Check out Illinois Baseball Report for a detailed wrap of all the Illini baseball action.
For those of you who haven't yet experienced the soulful and downright beautiful music of The Avett Brothers, you can catch a small glimpse into their soul when Mike Armintrout performs a batch of their songs tonight at The Canopy Club for free. It will start about 9:45 p.m. after Junior Boys finish up.

If you've met Mike Ross, the director of Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, then you know how passionate a fella he can be. He was recently asked to speak briefly at Assembly Hall for the Busey Economic Summit, and he chose to address a topic that should speak volumes to all of us.
He has been developing the term "Micro-Urban" as a way to describe where we live and how we live, in Champaign-Urbana.
Here is the transcript:
Congratulations to Blake Ester, who won a pair of tickets to tonight's Appleseed Cast show at Canopy. Next week, check out Monday's Overture to find out how you can win tickets to the Bottle Rockets at Highdive on Saturday, May 2.
Do you want to have a say in the future of internet access in Champaign-Urbana? The University and the cities are pursuing federal stimulus funds in order build out a publicly-owned, fiber-optic network to provide low-cost broadband to Champaign-Urbana citizens, starting with the “Bradley Corridor” area (bounded by University Ave., I-74, Lincoln Ave., and Mattis Ave.). The Graduate School of Library and Information Science will be hosting an informational session on April 25th from 8:30am till 2pm in Room 126 at the GSLIS building at 5th and Daniels Street on campus to solicit community feedback on the plan. It's important to get as much community involvement as possible, in order to ensure that any broadband roll-out meets the needs of the citizenry. This will be the first of multiple informational sessions and townhall meetings on the subject. Members of the cities' Broadband Access Committee will be on hand to answer questions. Everyone is welcome! Go to http://cuopenaccess.org for more information.
Before tomorrow's sun sets and you head to Canopy Club to hear Chicago's Company of Thieves opening for The Appleseed Cast, make sure to spend your 80-degree day enjoying them, too.
Around 2:45 pm tomorrow (right after their in-studio at WPGU), the band will play a few acoustic songs for everyone and anyone on the scholastic grass who wants to hear. Show up before 3 and keep your ears open for Genevieve's unbelievably stunning voice, or check twitter.com/drivemycarlye around then for the exact time and place of the performance.
April is. Come celebrate at the first annual Poetry Palooza this Friday, April 24, at Caffe Paradiso in Urbana, beginning at 6 p.m. The night kicks off with an open mic followed by Chicago slam poet Dennis Florine (pictured, above) at 6:30 p.m. A slam poetry competition kicks off at 7 p.m. featuring some of the best young poets in Champaign-Urbana.
The SPlog is available to our community of readers and Editors to get the word out about upcoming shows, events, ideas, quick opinions, photos, videos, overheard quotes — anything really, provided that it doesn't break the law.
Smile Politely also allows businesses who advertise with the magazine to access the SPlog to promote most anything and everything that's going on with them in their world.
Ultimately, we monitor the SPlog closely, so if we don't post your submission, we'll get in touch with you and discuss why. If every submission got posted, well, things would get messy in a hurry. We hope you understand.
Editors' note: Smile Politely maintains the right to edit all SPlog entries for grammar, punctuation, and syntax, but will never change the meaning or content of any submissions.
