Northbrook's Krewella team up with Nicky Romero on 'Legacy'

If music videos were more like the one Nicky Romero and Krewella made for their song, “Legacy,” maybe people would actually start paying attention to them again.

The video features Romero DJing with high-tech equipment in the background while Krewella sisters and Northbrook natives Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf belt out the dance song on a graffiti-covered bridge. The real star of the Kyle Padilla-directed video, however, is the interesting plot.

It revolves around a mother who wears a wig due to cancer and her teenage son, who she discovers has snuck out of the house one night. The kid and his friends are shown terrorizing her office co-workers at their respective homes and shaving their heads against their will.

Make sure to watch this one until the end.

Krewella – best known for its hit “Alive” -- will perform Nov. 16 at Aragon Ballroom. Look for my Krewella interview in the print edition of the Chicago Tribune that week.

    Not every ride's the Willard's Whizzer. That iconic coaster debuted in 1976 when Marriott's Great America, now Six Flags Great America, in Gurnee, Ill., first opened. And it's still popular today. But for every Whizzer there's a Tidal Wave, Shockwave or Z-Force, rides existing only in memory.

    Five years ago, denim-on-denim defied all of the dire warnings in the "Undateable" handbook: Instead of evoking John Denver or Britney Spears in her misstyled youth, chambray shirts paired with darker blue jeans became as cool as actor Johnny Depp and street-style heroine Alexa Chung.
