Upcoming CHIRP Events

/ CHIRP Emcees City Made Fest

RSVP to this event

All Ages


Andersonville's third annual City Made Fest celebrates local businesses, brewers, performers, and makers from across Chicago on September 12th and 13th. The festival features exclusive Chicago craft beers, Chicago food, and a Chicago-made artisan marketplace to showcase all things local.

CHIRP will be co-hosting live music sets from local artists including: 

Saturday headliner Eleventh Dream Day has a highly acclaimed new record, "Works for Tomorrow," out this summer on local independent label Thrill Jockey Records, established in 1992 by Bettina Richards.

Sunday performers JC Brooks and Jeremy Tromburg of The Uptown Sound are Bloodshot Records artists with two new releases, "Howl" and "Want More". The Bloodshot label was established independently in Chicago in 1994 by Nan Warshaw and Rob Miller.

Sunday DJs The Numero Group are the label owners themselves, who will be playing a heavy soul and funk-focused set of local music. The Numero Group is a record label dedicated to re-issuing the musical work of under-heard music and ephemera.

Cedille Records is the sponsor of the Chicago Music Merch Booth at this year's City Made Fest. Cedille is the independent record label of The Chicago Classical Recording Foundation and was founded in 1989 by James Ginsburg and became a nonprofit in 1994. Cedille is the only Chicago-based classical label and is located in the Andersonville neighborhood!

CHIRP Radio presents The First Time: First Sign

RSVP to this event

Martyrs’
3855 N. Lincoln Ave.
Chicago, IL

CHIRP Radio’s Live Lit and Music series, The First Time, pairs a reader’s personal story about a First Time theme with a song performance by house band, The First Time Three.   This time the theme is First Sign.  

This unique structure allows the story to resonate with audience members as they experience the accompanying song.  The band takes special care to perform unexpected song arrangements, so it is hard to tell what the audience enjoys more each story or each song. 

Hosted by CHIRP DJ Jenn Sodini, past readers featured in this quarterly series include Shannon Cason, Joe Meno, Ian Belknap, Brian Babylon, Kelly Hogan, Len Kasper and Ji Suk Yi.
