Artist Interviews Ryley Walker

Katie Owens inhabited a corner of Schubas Tavern's basement for a pre-show interview with Ryley Walker. Ryley discussed the locales that make him most at ease, his distaste for downtime, learning 'punk rock ethic' from a veteran local musician and solicited his fans to contact him so he can play your house shows.

Primrose Green released March 31 on Dead Oceans. Ryley is currently on tour but will back to Chicago on July 17 for the 2015 Pitchfork Music Fest in Union Park.

Artist Interviews Girl Group Chicago

Shana East, Megan Kasten, Carrie Shemanski, and Kate Walsh of Girl Group Chicago met with CHIRP DJ Jessi D at the bands' headquarters/Shana's living space in Avondale. They all tried really hard not to laugh through the whole interview, and discussed reclaiming and reinterpreting 1960's hits with a modern feminist perspective, cultivating a social support system focusing on empowering women and the community formed as a result of their 20+ member, all-girl band.

You can catch Girl Group Chicago next at The Hideout for a special NYE show.
