CHIRP Radio opens its 2020 CHIRP Night at The Whistler season this Wednesday with a show featuring local Chicagoo bands Watery Follies and Augustine Esterhammer-Fic. JOin us for these fantastic artists, as well as The Whistler's superior take on classic cocktails and the great feeling that comes with supporting local, independent radio (a porttion of the bar proceeds will be donated to CHIRP).
The Whistler is located at 2421 N Milwaukee Ave. 60647. As usual, there is no cover for this 21 and over event. The show starts around 8:30pm.
Minneapolis and L.A. styles combine on Wednesday, January 22nd as CHIRP Radio welcomesYour Smith to a sold out 18+ show at Schubas tavern.
"Minneapolis native Your Smith (aka Caroline Smith), relocated to Los Angeles after signing to Pulse Recording (DRAM, Miike Snow, Gallant, et. al). Inspired by the history of Laurel Canyon and moving through a city that’s been immortalized in music throughout the ages, Smith concocted her own sound, bringing together the funk / R&B 'Minneapolis Sound' of her roots and the classic songwriting of the LA folk heroes."
Auckland, New Zealand native and self-described "art school dropout" Chelsea Jade will also take the stage. Doors open at 7:30pm, show starts at 8:00pm. Click here for event details.
This Thursday, January 16th, at 8:00 PM CHIRP Radio 107.1 FM welcomes Juliana Hatfield with Sunshine Boys! Join us at Evanston SPACE (1245 Chicago Avenue, Evanston)

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:
On Thursday, January 16th CHIRP Radio welcomes Juliana Hatfield to the stage at Evanston SPACE.
