October 6 at The Whistler playing Joni Mitchelledit
On October 6 the band and I will be playing at The Whistler as part of their Playing Favorites series. In this series they ask Chicago bands to choose a record that got them into music in the first place, then cover it top to bottom. I chose the iconic Joni Mitchell album, Blue, a masterpiece and also the record I first heard at 16, the one that made that difficult year bearable and gave me a vision of what it might mean to write music. A perfect record, and a humbling challenge as a performer. Join us, won’t you? New City previewed the show and thinks you should come out.
