Hello neighbors!

Great news! The one and only JILL SOBULE has agreed to play a house concert in Andersonville on Wednesday, July 30!

We're on a very tight schedule to confirm this event with her management. If you're interested, please e-mail me directly...

Let's make this happen! :)
--------------------

Over six albums and two decades of recording, Jill Sobule has mused on topics such as the death penalty, anorexia, shoplifting, reproduction, the French resistance movement, adolescence and the Christian right. Early hit songs include "I Kissed a Girl" and "Supermodel."

Jill inducted Neil Diamond into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. She has performed with Neil Young, Billy Bragg, the late Warren Zevon, and has been a political troubadour for NPR stations across America. She is an American original.

"Jill Sobule can claim her place among the stellar New York singer-songwriters of the last decade. Topical, funny and more than a little poignant ... grown-up music for an adolescent age." — The New York Times

    Dear House Concert Hosts,

    How about also supporting gifted local and regional performing songwriters who have seen our pool of available Chicago-area venues dwindle (most recently, Stained Glass Coffeehouse; over the years we’ve lost the Earl of Old Town, Somebody Else’s Troubles. the Barbarossa, the Spot, Amazingrace, Changes, the Quiet...

    Dear House Concert Hosts,

    How about also supporting gifted local and regional performing songwriters who have seen our pool of available Chicago-area venues dwindle (most recently, Stained Glass Coffeehouse; over the years we’ve lost the Earl of Old Town, Somebody Else’s Troubles. the Barbarossa, the Spot, Amazingrace, Changes, the Quiet Knight, Grounds For Appeal, Single File, His & Hers, the Artful Dodger, Holstein’s, Orphan’s, Ratso’s, and No Exit--which now hosts music only intermittently). Not to mention those who no longer have live music.

    Sobule is nationally-known; but most national touring artists do not set anywhere near that high a fee, if they even demand one at all? And that the usual suggested donation for house concert guests is $15-20 at most (plus some potluck goodies to share)?

    Moreover, if a house concert is advertised in social media, it might be a target of the PROs (performing rights organizations) such as ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC. PROs employ collectionists who do nothing but troll the Web and local newspapers in search of venues to hit up for license fees. (They even harass restaurants and retail stores that play music over their sound systems to benefit customers)! Currently, only house concert series that are members of Folk Alliance International are exempt from purchasing PRO licenses. There’s also the question of liability insurance and local ordinances and permits.

    House concerts were originally devised as an alternative to vanishing venues for working performers to make ends meet while giving audiences exposure to a wide variety of artists (some of whom would charge far more in a theater or arena) and meet and mingle with them. When major artists take over the house concert circuit, and charge as much as or more than clubs like Park West, not only do the lesser-known but still talented artists suffer but so do other available venues.

@home is a journey through the landscape of a forgotten America, getting to know the invisible communities of people living without permanent housing. It examines homelessness through the lens of Mark Horvath, whose passion, InvisiblePeople.tv, shows social media's potential to democratize and empower those less fortunate by giving voice to those who are rarely heard.

@home follows Mark on a whirlwind road trip across the country, as he interviews people who are newly and chronically homeless in tent cities, under bridges, and in by-the-week motels. From Las Vegas to Arkansas, we explore the toll that homelessness has had on Mark himself, too, sharing with the camera and his thousands of followers on Twitter and Facebook his fight to rebuild his life while devoting himself to helping others. Challenging stereotypes, @home gets to know the people in your community who are struggling to stay in their homes and asks us all to question how invisible we’ve allowed them to become.

4:00pm- The actual sing will go from 4-6pm There will be break for refreshments and fellowship

What is it?

Sacred Harp singing is a tradition of sacred choral music that took root in the Southern region of the United States. It is part of the larger tradition of shape note music. Sacred Harp music is performed a cappella (voice only, without instruments) and originated as Protestant Christian music. The songs sung are primarily from the book The Sacred Harp.

The music is sung from The Sacred Harp songbook and a number of loaner music books will be available for this event.

The cost is free, though there will be "passing of the hat" for a freewill donation. The refreshments are pot luck, so if you are planning to come and can bring something, it would be appreciated.

More information can be found here:
