Black Lives Matter. The fact that it needs to be said shows how very far we still have to go as a country. We hear you and we are with you.
Zola Jesus has been getting a lot of attention in 2011. Listen to her incredible voice and intensely atmospheric music and it’s not hard to understand why.

Ravenswood Avenue is one of the most unique thoroughfares in Chicago. Strategically tucked between the busier and noisier streets on the North Side, tree-lined Ravenswood is a parallel oasis of commercial and creative activity, an urban planner’s dream come true.
This weekend the numerous artists who work on the avenue will be on display at the 10th annual Ravenswood ArtWalk. Over 40 studios will be open to the public for free. There will also be live music, presentations, film screenings, local food, beer by Goose Island, and the RAW Street Fair. Enjoy the rooftop lounge and sculpture garden, as well as a trolley service that will provide architectural tours.
Autumn is in the air, and this is a perfect way to spend what’s going to be a wonderful weekend inside and out before Winter sets in once again. See you there!
Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 1 & 2 / Ravenswood Avenue, between Addison & Lawrence / 11:00am – 7:00pm (Sat.) – 6:00pm (Sun.) / All Ages
