Artist Interviews In Conversation: Jash and Lulu on the Trans Lib Comp

This spring local artist Jash Huggins (formerly of Evasive Backflip, now performing solo) organized the production of the Trans Lib Comp, a compilation tape featuring trans, gender non-comforming (gnc) and non-binary (nb) artists mostly based in Chicago. In this conversation Lulu (of The Just Luckies and The Cute Tops) joins Jash to discuss the comp and the state of the Chicago music scene for trans/gnc/nb artists.

You can find the comp on Bandcamp here, and read an interview with just Jash on the CHIRP blog here.

Artist Interviews Anti/Beyond

"When I find myself in train stations and airports, it seems like a little window into the rest of my life. In my day to day life, I'm kind of just going along, but when I'm in a train station waiting for a train, I feel like my life opens up. That feeling is what I was trying to capture in the album."

Local artist Andy Masters aka Anti/Beyond stopped by the CHIRP studios to discuss his self-titled album, the role of transportation in his work, and sexual ambiguity with CHIRP Features Director Amelia Hruby.

You can see Anti/Beyond at this month's CHIRP Night at the Whistler on Wednesday, June 28th! Details here.
