Chicago just earned some cool points. After a debate at the Cook County municipality about whether or not DJ sets and live shows should be considered "live cultural performances" the ruling has been made. And it looks like they will be from now on. The issue arose after a judge claimed that rock, rap and DJ-based music wasn't considered fine arts defined by the county code and that immediately stirred an outcry.

The new change now means that venues holding less than 750 people will be exempt from a 3% tad on admission fees because they're now considered cultural performances. "This agreement makes it clear that it was never the intent of the Administration for the County to play culture police and make decisions on what is, or isn’t, music or art," Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said.
