    Mar. 17, 2017 Update
    Dear Neighbor, The Jefferson Park Branch Library, in collaboration with Pan y Rosas Disco, is launching a new Library Experimental series. This new series focuses on Chicago's experimental musicians. The first show will feature text and tuba action with Nathanael Jones and Beth McDonald, as well as cello experiments with Sarah Ritch.

  • Miss Colleen Lives in Jefferson Park

    There were over 100 people that came to the meeting that were against it. I agree that anyone there would have raised their eyebrows at the facts the people said against Arena.

  • Dennis 30 year Jefferson Park resident

    Yes, Miss Colleen. Lots of people against who yelled and railed and talked over anyone whom they disagreed with. A totally polite and civil crowd, many from miles away. Is there anyone from the opposition who is polite enough to permit the other side to state their case?

Bon Jovi’s new ‘House’ is in order

Where: United Center, 1901 W. Madison

    Bon Jovi's new 'House' is in order
    There is a house that Jon Bon Jovi has visited in his mind many times over the past few years. Its windows are shattered, its foundation is made of deep tree roots and it stands tall and proud, alone in a vapid landscape.

    Music notes: Indie pop darling Regina Spektor plays Chicago
    She sounds like a folk singer. She looks like a folk singer. But Moscow-born indie pop singer Regina Spektor has turned classic folk on its head as a big player on the anti-folk movement. Toying with the tenets set forth by artists such as Joni Mitchell, she writes about simple moments rather than tackling the momentous.
