We have a busy week ahead of us at CHIRP. Not only are we beginning to work on equipment installation for our studios, but we’ll be out and about all over the place!
On Friday, July 31, CHIRP will be providing the musical accompaniment to the Printer’s Ball, a great celebration of all things print in Chicago. All supporters of the city’s independent literary scene are welcome at the free event, running from 5-11PM at the Luddington Building, 1104 S. Wabash.
On Saturday, August 1, CHIRP is pleased to present The Astronomer, performing a set of new songs and scores to accompany a live reading by acclaimed author Joe Meno (Hairstyles of the Damned, The Boy Detective Fails) in celebration of his long-anticipated new novel “The Great Perhaps”.
Renowned poster artist Jay Ryan and photgrapher Todd Baxter will be projecting visual art based on Meno’s work, making this event a unique multimedia event.
Canasta opens the night with their wide-ranging brand of chamber pop.
The show takes place at the Old Town School, 4544 N. Lincoln Ave. Showtime is 8PM. Sign up above for CHIRP e-mails for a chance to win tickets to this and other upcoming CHIRP shows!
And finally, the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival runs all weekend in Logan Square – up and down Milwaukee between California and Ridgeway. The weekend features an amazing musical lineup, some of it curated by our good friends at The Whistler, who’ve asked CHIRP to be the official between-set DJs for the fest. We’ll also have a booth where we’ll be offering up all the latest CHIRP swag in preparation for our launch — coming soon!
