  • 2014 High Fidelity Music Series

    2014 High Fidelity Music Series

    In 2014 we curated a music series in collaboration with Chicago Public Radio, WBEZ, for their High Fidelity Music Series. We brought some of our favorite acts out to play at a pretty spectacular venue. The WBEZ studio terrace at Navy Pier. With only 150 tickets available to each show, each one sold out in a matter of minutes. All in all each night was pretty special. Incredible music from extremely talented artists grown right out of our own region.

    Jennifer Hall at the Subterranean

    by Joan McNeal It’s a rare thing to be surprised these days.  In this heady era of rampant cynicism and pseudo intellectualism, we’re so often plagued with the knowledge that we’ve been there and done that.  In most every case this is sadly quite true.  So it is a rare thing when something hits unexpectedly and shakes us out of the boring, apathetic stranglehold that we’ve become so accustomed to. This was exactly the case this past Saturday night at the Subterranean.  Several acts […]

    Space in Evanston with Dave Tamkin and Mike Mangione

    Mike Mangione and the Union from ROOFTOP SESSIONS CHICAGO on Vimeo. Mike Mangione and the Union from ROOFTOP SESSIONS CHICAGO on Vimeo.
