The festival runs October 17- 21st and takes place at venues and universities throughout Chicago, with the finale, a “Live Magazine Show,” presented at Co-Prosperity Sphere in Bridgeport. Here, collaborative teams debut their multi-media creations at this celebratory event. This year’s festival theme, “Belonging,” asks participants and audience to consider what makes us part of a community, a city, a country? The festival boasts a stellar line-up of Mexican writers and artists, including Cristina Rivera Garza, two time-winner of the prestigious Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz Prize, as the Writer in Residence; Premio Iberoamericano de novela Elena Poniatowska-winning author, Emiliano Monge; Sexto Piso founding editor and The Zero-Sum Game author, Eduardo Rabasa; the poet and author of he novel Formol, Carla Faesler; and world-renowned visual artist, Amalia Pica.

A unique feature of the Lit & Luz Festival are collaborations between the Mexico and Chicago participants. In the months leading to the festival, participants team up to learn about each others’ practice and work, and together, create a 10-minute-or-less piece or presentation which debuts at the festival’s finale. This work is then re-staged at Mexico City’s Museo Tamayo in February 2018. We’re proud to announce the 2017 Chicago participants include sculptor and performance artist, Danny Giles; The Grip of It author Jac Jemc; poet and Director of National Programs for Louder Than A Bomb Youth Poetry Festival, Nate Marshall; writer, director, and Free Street Theater Artistic Director, Coya Paz; and poet, novelist, and essayist, Erika L.

He has appeared on the Bob and Tom show, WGN 720 AM radio, and the Benson Interruption Podcast, and was listed as one of the Top 20 Comedians in Chicago by Comedy.com. Adam has appeared at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland OR, and as part of the Just for Laughs Chicago festival for three years running.

Since the band’s inception in December, 2010, members Andrew Pelletier (vocals, guitar), Shelby Pollard (guitar, vocals), James Ratke (drums), and Adam Schneider (bass) have developed a sound that is both unique and familiar, reminiscent of favorite ’60′s folk tunes and drawing inspiration from influences such as Radiohead and The Beatles. Each band member brings years of experience to the group, and each of their musical backgrounds contribute to elements of the band’s blended sound. http://minorcharactersmusic.com/ ____________________________________________________ Musical headliner: BROTHER GEORGE Brother George is an indie rock band from Chicago, IL. The current lineup consists of Zane Scott (Drums), Neal Neumann (Bass, Vocals), Ryan Culbertson (Guitar, Vocals), and Sagan Jacobson (Guitar, Vocals). Brother George formed in 2007, but their current members have been playing together for just under a year. Founding member Tory Dahlhoff left the band last year to pursue family and career (he ultimately became a touring member of LA electro-soul group Electric Guest). Sagan Jacobson filled Dahlhoff’s vacancy after touring with The Dear Hunter. Drummer Zane Scott joined soon after to round out the lineup. The band lives together in an apartment above a record store in the heart of Wicker Park. During the summer, you can often hear them perfecting tracks from a window on Milwaukee Ave. Though Brother George represents Chicago, founding members and longtime friends Neal Neumann and Ryan Culbertson originally formed Brother George shortly after leaving St. Louis for Chicago. Sagan was a founding member of Bloomington, IL rock outfit Crown Atlantic. Zane was once on drums for legendary Bloomington, IL indie folk band Ohtis. Coincidentally, Brother George’s previous drummer (Philip Baker) was once drummer for Ohtis, too. Brother George is a hodgepodge of the midwest’s most silently influential bands. http://brother-george.com ______________________________________________________ music: IDA Y VUELTA Ida y Vuelta comes from a long tradition of Mexican folk music called Son Jarocho.

April 2, kick off Poetry Month by spending an evening with two poetry/music projects. Members of Billy Blake and the Vagabonds will join San Francisco-based musician Michael Zapruder and friends to perform a few selections from their latest albums, then discuss the process of writing songs around the framework of poems—for Zapruder, from his contemporaries, and for Reid Coker, Kennedy Greenrod, and Saleem Dhamee, the poems of Romantic poet William Blake. Danny’s Tavern, 1951 W. Dickens Ave, Tuesday, April 2, 7:30 p.m. Hosted by writer Fred Sasaki and MAKE Poetry Editor and Danny’s Reading Series curator, Joel Craig. MORE ON THE PARTICIPANTS: Michael Zapruder is an award-winning songwriter and recording artist, and a co-founder of San Francisco’s Howells Transmitter arts collective and record label. His albums include 52 Songs, This is a Beautiful Town, New Ways of Letting Go, and Dragon Chinese Cocktail Horoscope, which won a 2009 Independent Music Award for Best Folk / Singer Song-Writer Album. His most recent work is Pink Thunder, a collection of free verse pop art-songs made from the poems of more than twenty contemporary American poets. Contributors include Noelle Kocot, James Tate, Bob Hicok, David Berman, D. A. Powell, and Valzhyna Mort. http://michaelzapruder.com/ Billy Blake and the Vagabonds is songwriters Kennedy Greenrod and Reid Coker, guitarist Saleem Dhamee, bassist Jason Labrosse & drummer Seth Vanek. Inspired by 18th century Romantic mystic, William Blake, the Vagabonds have arranged 15 new tunes from his canonical collections, “Songs of Innocence” and “Songs of Experience”. Contemporary interpretations of Blake’s classic work, the Vagabonds breathe new fire and meaning into William Blake’s iconic words, helping to re-illuminate his incendiary visions to both casual and most devoted of Blake enthusiasts. Drawing from Stones-y-rock, mellow pop, countrified folk, gospel music and hopping Bo Diddley blues, “Billy Blake and the Vagabonds” are a wholly modern representation of William Blake and his work. http://www.billyblakemusic.com/ Fred Sasaki is associate editor of Poetry magazine.

Event: MAKE #12 Release Party http://makemag.com/make-12-release-party/ Wed, 26 Mar 2014 16:36:31 +0000 http://makemag.com/?p=11831 http://www.hideoutchicago.com/event/200603-make-literary-magazine-issue-chicago/ Featuring: • A live Q &A with the City of Chicago’s Official Cultural Historian, Tim Samuelson, hosted by comedian Adam Burke. Audience participation encouraged. • Music from Like Pioneers and Soft Speaker http://www.likepioneers.com/ http://softspeaker.com/ • Readings from issue #12 contributors, including Tovah Burstein and Ted Mathys • Discounted subscriptions and magazines—and much more! More on participants: Tim Samuelson has been seeking-out the stories of America’s past for over forty years. As the City of Chicago’s official “Cultural Historian” – the first person to hold the position since its creation in 2002 – Mr. Samuelson firmly believes that the stewardship of history should more than just good scholarship and careful footnotes. If history is to be vital and relevant, it’s equally important to engagingly tell the story. In his role as Chicago’s historian, Mr. Samuelson has told the city’s many stories through exhibits, books, public programs and media presentations. Topics include a wide range of Chicago’s diverse contributions to the arts and popular culture. His media appearances include participation in nationally-broadcast television series that include Nova, History Detectives and The American Experience. First and foremost, Tim Samuelson’s favorite topic is Midwestern architecture, with special emphasis on the life and work of Louis H. Sullivan. His previous professional experience includes five years as the Curator of Architecture at the Chicago Historical Society, and over fifteen years as a historian and restoration advisor with the Commission on Chicago Landmarks. He has also been a consultant for numerous historic restoration projects, including the St. Louis Union Station and recent work at Louis Sullivan’s historic Carson Pirie Scott Store in Chicago. (via explorechicago.org) Adam Burke, originally from the U.K., began performing stand-up after writing a piece on comedy for a Chicago magazine. Before long, Burke became a fixture at Midwestern shows and showcases. His absurdist, verbose comedy covers not only the vagaries of life in his adopted hometown of Chicago, but also the usefulness of mammoths, dogs who study law, and the importance of gangland grammar. He has appeared on WGN 720 AM radio, was recently listed as one of the Top 20 Comedians in Chicago by Comedy.com and featured in the Chicago Reader. Adam has opened for a wide variety of comedians including Jeff Ross, Maria Bamford, Doug Benson, Bo Burnham, Brendon Burns, and Robin Williams. Adam Burke has been enjoying a nice run of media attention for his fine work at The Kiss Kiss Cabaret and Cole’s Open Mic! First there’s this fun article from the Chicago Reader, then the article from the Highland Park Suntimes, and then this Comedy of Chicago review of one of his sets, plus this Trib Local article coincided with his St. Patty’s Day Show in Wilmette. This man is getting popular! Want to see where Adam is next? Bookmark his tumblr!

Also, check out their video for Tell ‘Em, Ghost:http://vimeo.com/43355369 If Piecemeal was technically their first album, then Oh, Magic should be considered their first album as a band. It is the document of a year spent collectively dirtying a clean slate. A year spent writing, grilling, playing shows (with folks like The Thermals, The Head & The Heart, Disappears, Tokyo Police Club, and Caveman) — and solidifying as an actual group, not just a project. Soft Speaker Adding a little dash of everything to their musical stew and letting it simmer, Soft Speaker has created a delicious blend of the psychedelic, indie, folk and pop. Along the same contemporary lines of Crystal Skulls, Sleep Station, and a more subdued Nightmare of You, Soft Speaker is still able to tap into some elements of the 60’s and early 70’s folk-rock. Fans of indie pop and floaty instrumentals will love Soft Speaker.reviewsic ~~~~~~~~ Ted Mathys is the author of The Spoils and Forge, both from Coffee House Press.

DESCRIPTION: On a rain-swept Florida highway, eco-terrorist Edie Aberdeen is robbed and left for dead. When two police officers rescue her, she offers nothing of where she came from and nothing of what she fled three-thousand miles to leave behind. Green Gospel deftly navigates past and present while moving across the landscapes of California, Florida, and Oregon. This vivid debut novel examines the roots of fundamentalism; the powerful sway of community; and the heart of the question of whether or not people change. PRAISE FOR Green Gospel “. . . powerful writing. . . . as skillful as they come at describing a scene and putting the reader in a place in time.”New York Journal of Books “Assuming you go ahead and read the first page of Fiore’s marvelous debut, the literary magic that follows will render you astonished, and you’ll be hard pressed to put it down. The gorgeous sentences in this book keep coming, the characters force you awake, and the unforgettable story is real and true.”-Elizabeth Crane, author of You Must Be This Happy to Enter “A powerfully unfolding story of the changing landscapes of our time–physical, cultural, and personal. With Green Gospel, L.C. Fiore establishes himself as a writer of extraordinary sensitivity and insight.”-Alex Shakar, author of The Savage Girl
