Kyle writesThe Fourth Annual Doc10 Film Festival Starts This Week!

written by Kyle Sanders

The Fourth Annual Doc10 Film Festival
April 11 - 14th, 2019
The Davis Theater

For those of you whose interest is piqued by sincere cinema, the Doc10 Film Festival could prove to be just the ticket you're looking for: a four day theatrical experience dedicated solely to ten distinct documentaries presented by the Chicago Media Project.

The festival kicks off April 11, appropriately with Knock Down the House--a politically-inspiring spotlight on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez--and will close out with The Biggest Little Farm, a fascinating look into the trials and errors of starting a sustainable farm in the middle of nature. All documentaries will screen at The Davis Theater in Lincoln Square.

Mike Nikolich writesEgo Mechanics Will Rock the Whistler Crowd

CHIRP is such a vital part of Chicago’s incredible music scene, and one of the benefits of being a volunteer is having the opportunity to hear great new music by deserving artists like Ego Mechanics.

In December 2017, CHIRP volunteer Seth Arp posted on Facebook about his band performing at the Elbo Room. I checked out the band and debuted their song, “Burnt Orange,” on my show. Arp commented, “My Band’s new single, ‘Burnt Orange’ was featured on the radio here in Chicago tonight! I’m not getting shit for sleep tonight! I’m over the moon right now. Ever since I picked up a guitar and started writing songs, I’ve dreamt of this. Three years ago, I decided to take my music career seriously and today is another one of what will be many milestones along my path. So thankful, so happy, so excited!”

“Burnt Orange” has received a lot of airplay on CHIRP since then, and the band is headlining CHIRP Night at the Whistler on Wednesday, March 27. Tickets are free, but you will need to RSVP to this 21+ show.
