Join CHIRP at Classic Album Sundays – Is This It

Classic Album Sundays is a group album listening experience that builds a community of music lovers and CHIRP is proud to co-sponsor the series in Chicago. Join us during October as we will feature The Strokes’ “Is This It,” one of the most popular albums from the early noughts.


The Strokes become overnight sensations and established themselves as the ‘it’ band of the moment, a modern Velvet Underground with splashes of seventies punk rock.  On “Is This It” The Strokes strived to capture a simple rock sound that was not significantly enhanced in the studio. Building on the work of their 2001 extended play, “The Modern Age,” the band members molded compositions largely through live takes during the recording sessions, while songwriter Julian Casablancas continued to detail the lives and relationships of urban youth.

Join Chirp at Chicago Humanities Festival – Reza Aslan: God

Buy tickets to this event

Chicago, IL 60614

All Ages


Bestselling author of Zealot and No god but God, Reza Aslan comes to CHF to deliver a wide-ranging account of humanity’s struggle to make sense of the divine, and how the idea of god—from its prehistoric origins to a single divine personality—continues to offer new ways of connecting people of different faiths. In his most personal book to date, god: A Human History, the host of CNN’s “Believer” sounds a call to embrace a deeper, more expansive understanding of God with the concept of a “humanized god”—a supercharged, divine version of ourselves—at its nucleus. More than just a history of our understanding of God, Aslan gets to the root of this humanizing impulse in order to develop a more universal spirituality.
