March Freebies, Give Aways, Reviews and Upcoming Shows

Here at ChiIL Mama, we've been crazy busy reviewin', and doin' what we're doin'.    Here's a list of what's upcoming in March:

Tonight we're back in the photo pit at The Congress for The Pogues, to bring you all the crowd surfin', and raucous rock these Irish punks can dish up.   Rumor is, this will be the last tour with the original line up.   So, come on out tonight, because it may be your last chance to see Shane McGowan.   All ages.

We also can't wait to see World Inferno Friendship Society and Subhumans at Reggie's Rock Club in April.   We'll be covering the World Inferno Show.

We'll have a round up of theatre benefits, camps, classes and kids shows, coming soon.   We also have the following theatre reviews for you:

This at Theater Wit-what happens when you sleep with your friends?   This adds a twist of new babies and sleep deprivation, middle age malaise, death and mourning and bi-sexual French Doctors without borders or morals.   Oh yeah...and a gay boy friend with a photographic recall, that has earned him spots on TV shows.

Blue Man Group at Briar Street--new and still blue.    Our favorite cyan man actors have retooled their long running hit with a technological twist, perfect for 2011.   We'll have a photo filled recap and more in depth coverage of these artists' excellent exploration of how cell phones and tech toys simultaneously bring us closer together and isolate us.

Race to Nowhere--We had a chance to screen this thought provoking, revolutionary documentary and highly suggest catching a screening near you.

A History Lesson:  Part 1 Punk Rock in Los Angeles in 1984--We've got a review of this brand new release on DVD, and we have one for you!   If you love The Meat Puppets, Redd Kross, The Minutemen & Twisted Roots, check this out.

**We'll also be giving away one copy of A History Lesson:  Part 1 Punk Rock in Los Angeles in 1984

This month we'll be reviewing two books.   Hand Songs, is a multicultural adventure, for parents to read to and with their little ones.   Cinderella Ate My Daughter, is a social commentary, for parents to read, regarding their daughters.   

**We'll also be giving away one copy of Hand Songs book/CD set and 3 hard back copies of Cinderella Ate My Daughter.

So, check in with ChiIL Mama and we'll help feed your brain and your creativity.
