Urbana’s iconic American Football house featured on Noisey

Arguably Champaign-Urbana’s biggest popular musical landmark, American Football house (located at 704 W. High St. in Urbana) has served as the artwork for both American Football’s debut, a standard-setter for emo music, and their newest album, set for release after a 17-year hiatus.

A new feature from Vice’s music mag Noisey (and local writer Sean Neumann!) has shone a spotlight on the west Urbana house, which rests on a nondescript street full of college students, and includes some really cool nuggets of info from Polyvinyl Records co-founder Matt Lunsford, as well as some familiar faces.
