Upcoming CHIRP Events

CHIRP Radio @ Baconstock 2016

RSVP to this event Buy tickets to this event

Exit Strategy Brewing
7700 W. Madison St.
Forest Park, Illinois 60130

Join CHIRP Radio for a full day of BACON, BANDS, AND BREWS!

Baconstock started a few years ago at the home of 13-Monsters guitarist Jamie Riani as a birthday party for his wife Melissa (a bacon freak of the highest order). The event quickly became a day long mini-festival of area indie bands, ribs, bacon laden dishes of awesomeness, and a ton of beer. The lineup for Baconstock 2016 is as follows:

Parasites
13-Monsters
Vortis
TAFKAVince (The Artist Formally Known as Vince)
Koopa and Los Mysterios
I Lost Control
The 92's
The Ions
Scott McNeil

Exit Strategy's custom menu for the event will be revealed when they are finished creating in their mad scientist kitchen. Stay Tuned!

Chirp Radio presents The First Time: First Gig

RSVP to this event Buy tickets to this event

Martyrs’
3855 N. Lincoln Ave.
Chicago, IL
773.404.9494

21+


CHIRP Radio's quarterly storytelling & music series The First Time returns with a new cast of storytellers and the theme: First Gig. 

Our readers will pair their story with a handpicked song that is then performed by our houseband, The First Time Four (Gerald Dowd, Steve Frisbie, Liam Davis, Scott Stevenson). 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 Jenn Sodini (The Moth, Psychotic Break)

Benefits CHIRP Radio.  $10 at Martyrs'.
