CHIRP Radio’s Live Lit and Music series, The First Time, pairs a reader’s personal story about a First Time event with a song performance. This unique structure allows the story to resonate with audience members as they experience the accompanying song covered by The First Time Three band. The band takes special care to perform unexpected song arrangements, so it is hard to tell which the audience enjoys more each story or each song.
Hosted by CHIRP DJ Jenn Sodini, October's theme is First Fight for Wednesday, October 15th at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. and scheduled performers include:
ShowYouSuck, Performance Artist
Ian Belknap, Producer of Write Club
Nathan Rabin, Writer - The Dissolve
Martin Morrow, Comedian
Katie Prout, Storyteller
Maya Schenwar, Journalist
Jessi D. , CHIRP DJ

Multiples. is a temporary crossover market open for one weekend in March and October to showcase objects produced as multiples. Multiples. seeks to span the division between art and craft, which are intimately connected, yet often artificially separated by preconceived notions of social value. Modeled as a hybrid of the contemporary commercial art fair, critical craft markets and an exploration of visual art forms, Multiples. is an affordable option for contemporary artists and makers looking to expose their practice and sell their editions, replicated hand-made, or manufactured works in Chicago.
CHIRP will be spinning all weekend at the Opening Night Party Friday, October 17th and during the show's public hours Saturday, October 18 12pm-8pm and Sunday, October 19 12pm-6pm.
