M is for Musicians we're looking forward to seeing this Saturday! Chicago is a music town and we're going to be reveling in it this weekend!
First, we'll be checkin' out The Verve Pipe at 3:00pm at S.P.A.C.E. Don't expect to hear The Freshmen. They have an excellent kid-centric disc out
now, and will be featuring the great new material on A Family Album.
These guys are the real deal--professional, high calibur, award winning musicians and some of them are even parents. So they "get it". Their kids' tunes appeal to the littles without being condescending or driving parents crazy. These guys put on a great live show, too. With tickets priced at just $10 for all ages, everyone's sure to get their money's worth.

Saturday night, we're off to Martyr's for a parents' nite out.
Saturday October 16th @ Martyr's

Here's the low down from Martyr's site:

and Sally Timms play a lot of all ages shows and outdoor fests, so if you like what you hear, you can catch 'em with the whole family later on. Their kids band, Wee Hairy Beasties, is also beloved by kids of all ages, so be on the look out. They're excellent musicians.
(We'll also see Danbert Nobacon tomorrow at his reading. His first novel, 3 Dead Princes, is an anarchist fairy tale "for adults of all ages", released by exterminating angel press.)
Thursday October 14th @ The Book Cellar (Lincoln Square)
