Jeremy Peruski writesMusic in Pictures: Matt & Kim at the Congress Theater (11/10/12)

The Brooklyn-based duo, Matt & Kim brought their energetic, packed set to the Congress Theater last week for what they called "the biggest crowd at a show this tour." They plowed through a 90-minute set with such ease and passion. M&K both stated how much they looked forward to this stop on the tour. Matt was amazed how it seemed like just yesterday they were playing basement shows in Chicago.

Jason Crock writesHenry Rollins “The Long March Tour” Continues Friday and Saturday

CHIRP welcomes Henry Rollins for the second and third nights of his “Long March” spoken-word tour at the Old Town School of Folk Music on Friday and Saturday, November 16th and 17th. Though he’s best known for his singing career, Rollins started going on spoken-word tours while he was a still a singer with Black Flag. While he would continue on to successful solo work, his audio memoir of his days in that band, Get in the Van, would earn him a Grammy award. His performances have evolved to include anecdotes from his travels to countries across the world, some of which have been captured in a new book of photography and writing from Rollins, Occupants.

Both the Friday and Saturday shows begin at 8 PM. For more information, visit
