moimoi writesPop Culture Resolutions: Read More With CHIRP!

written by DJ moimoi

New year, new resolutions to get our sh*t together – whether that’s improving our eating, sleeping, and exercise (all good things) or just clearing out our watchlists while we’re stuck inside over the cold winter months.

One resolution that checks both boxes for self-improvement and entertainment is to read more, and here are some tips to ensure success:

First, figure out when you have time to read: On your commute to work? On the treadmill? Waiting in the allergist’s lobby or in line for a chicken sandwich? All of these and more can be opportunities to get some reading in, if you consider your selections wisely. For example, you don’t want to carry a Tolstoy novel around on your daily commute – that might make better bedside reading or work better on an e-reader. Poetry and graphic novels are great to pick up and put down when you’re multi-tasking. And paperbacks can be thrown around, consumed, and traded in with zero guilt (especially if you shop local and/or used).

Then, figure out what to read: Perhaps you have a tantalizing stack of unread books cluttering up your apartment or a really long spreadsheet of titles you’ve been updating for years. This is what happens when you decide to read something before figuring out when it will be read. Resolve yourself to clearing the clutter and crossing off the list using the method above.

There are also tons of celebrity reading lists, reading challenges, and book clubs to incentivize a new or renewed commitment to reading. As music-lovers, we at CHIRP particularly recommend the following:

Clarence Ewing: The Million Year Trip writesJoin Us This Saturday at Evanston SPACE for Dolly Varden and Frisbie!

The CHIRP Radio 2020 concert calendar kicks off in Evanston on Saturday January 11 when we welcome local bands Dolly Varden and Frisbie to Evanston SPACE for an all-ages show at 8:00pm.

"For 18 years Dolly Varden has been wowing and charming audiences with the warm, sublime interplay of Steve’s and Diane’s voices (yes, they’re still married); the emotional potency, intelligence and undeniable melodicism of Steve’s songwriting; and the supple backing of supremely versatile guitarist Mark Balletto and the limber rhythm section of bassist Mike Bradburn and drummer Matt Thobe as the band encompasses rock, folk, country and R&B/gospel influences to create something solely its own. From the 1995 debut, Mouthful of Lies, through The Dumbest Magnets (2000) and The Panic Bell (2007), Dolly Varden has built a sizable, loyal fan base, and now listeners new and old can reap the considerable rewards of For a While. It’s an album that feels like it couldn’t have been created at any other point in the band’s history."

"Frisbie's debut, The Subversive Sounds of Love, was hailed as 'the power-pop album of the year." (Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune)...now the band has completed New Debut, a 40-minute burst of imaginative and affecting songs...In short, New Debut will kick you in the head and the pants."

Evanston SPACE is located at 1245 Chicago Avenue Evanston, IL 60202. Tickets are available at the venue's Web site.
