  • And in obvious news, the Cubs-Indians game scheduled for this evening has been postponed. But hey, now all you Cubs fans can watch the Blackhawks hopefully bring home the Cup instead. [CBS]

  • A 19-year-old died of what was likely an overdose after the Spring Awakening music festival Saturday. [DNAinfo]

  • A City Council committee signed off on three new police settlements today totaling $3.65 million. [DNAinfo Chicago]
