Michael Zerang and Jim Baker, two indefatigable titans of Chicago’s improvised music community, celebrate 35 years of collaboration

Tue 11/28, 9 PM, Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia, $10

    Michael Zerang and Jim Baker, two indefatigable titans of Chicago's improvised music community, celebrate 35 years of collaboration
    The backbone of Chicago's illustrious history of improvised music is made up of a small handful of indefatigable players who endlessly explore and play gigs-sometimes for just a handful of folks-but few have been as long devoted to spontaneous experimentation as keyboardist Jim Baker and percussionist Michael Zerang.

concern about safety

There is an urgent need for adequate lighting on the North side of the 606 at Bloomingdale and Western. The pavement is very uneven and dangerous to pedestrians. Also any traffic coming from the East trying to merge onto Western cannot see what's coming from northbound traffic on Western. There should be a way for cars to see what's coming on Western, in order to merge without blocking the crosswalk or entering Western since that's very dangerous to the moving cars on Western as well.

    Cleveland DIY Afrofuturists Mourning [A] BLKstar blend 70s soul, experimental hip-hop, and postpunk ambience
    This remarkable combo from Cleveland only formed at the start of 2016, but they've grabbed my attention with a flurry of recordings since then. Led by producer RA Washington, Mourning [A] BLKstar features a trio of dynamic singers-James Longs, LaToya Kent, and Kyle Kidd-and an indeterminate number of musicians.

The Comedy Clubhouse's "Wishin Control" is a Critic's Pick.

The Comedy Clubhouse, that purple building on Ashland just south of North Ave, just opened with their Main Stage Theatrical, Wishin Control. It was reviewed this past weekend and got the critic's pick:

http://perform.ink/review-wishin-control-comedy-clubhouse/

    Review: WISHIN' CONTROL at The Comedy Clubhouse | PerformInk
    By Jonald Jude Reyes When problems grow weary on a person's mind, sometimes the last string of hope is to just wish. "I wish I would win the lotto," or "I wish the right person would come along," or "I wish Kevin James would make another Mall Cop!"

    Protect Rental Property Assets with an LLC
    Real Estate has always been considered a safe investment since the supply is finite and the demand grows with the population. Even though we have seen some swings in the real estate market over the past decade, the theory still is held true by many.

  • Rowe Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    My child attended this school 6 yrs and our experience was amazing, this is one school where you feel like a part of whole. Open door polices, with teachers or the principal at all times, any issues you may have are address right in the momont & not put off, I loved that about the school, and the strong academic foundation my child received at Rowe I feel has set her up for success.

Hello, I was just on of the people robbed by armed men the other evening (near Pulaski park) and I wanted to share with you a message I sent to Alderman Hopkins. I hope that others too will reach out to city officials. These crimes that are happening day and night here need to be stopped. The criminals have zero fear raiding our neighborhoods and terrorizing residents and I hope that we can change that, NOW!

"Hello, I was held up by gunmen the other evening returning from work in front of my building just upon exiting the car. I filed a police report and learned from the police and others that mine was not the only incident that night. It seems in a span of a couple of hours these men targeted several people. The incident was terrifying and it was also brought to my attention that the police do not have the forces they need on the street overnight to do their jobs. Also, I also learned recently that they are often told not to chase to apprehend criminals. What are they to do? If the police have their hands tied these criminals know that they can terrorize the unarmed public and do basically whatever they want! It's awful! Also, I had noticed for some time that my street and general area here is quite dark at night. Are there any plans for added lighting or perhaps type of lighting for this area? Thank you very much. I am grateful that I only had to give up some of my belongings to spare my life but I am not the only one who works the second or third shift in this city and not every crime ends without violence. Please help to make the neighborhood safer, day AND night. Not everyone can stay barricaded inside overnight as residents have suggested I do, nor should we have to accept and tolerate that criminals have free reign of the streets just because the sun goes down. Thank you very much for your time. Please advise me if I can be of any assistance in this."

My neighbor was robbed by 3 males approximately 12:30 a.m. Wednesday morning as she got out of her car street parked right in front of our building. I will relay the info as best i can. She exited the car, was approached by 1 male, shortish (5 feet?) Who was wearing a Halloween mask, the other 2 pulled up in a car. She was told he had a gun, i think she saw it too, then told not to yell or scream. She set her bag on the ground, the male frisked her pockets, took her things & jumped in the car & left. They took her work bag, some cash, id & credit cards. She was not hurt- just shocked & scared. They threw her keys on the ground & didn't take her car. She didn't get a good look/description of the males or car. It happened very quick. She filed a police report. This happened 1253 n cleaver, at Potomac & cleaver. Maybe a neighbor has cameras that caught something? Just be aware, keep your heads up neighbors, take care!

He doesn't have a collar, and was last seen at our apartment, near Western/Fullerton in Bucktown/Logan Square. Please email tecranston@gmail.com with any sightings. Thanks for your help, neighbors!

    Summer did you post to the Bucktown Community News Facebook site? That site has great coverage. Also Chicago Northside Lost And Found Pets page on Facebook. I live in the area so I will keep my fingers crossed and my eyes open for you. Sorry he is missing I have 2 indoor cats and I would be beside myself if mine were missing. Hang in there sweetie and hope you find him.

  • @WendiChicago Interested in local news

    Also, post signs with pictures in a six block radius around your house. Put some of her litter and old clothes that smell like you around the door to your house or apartment. Make sure all the shelters know she is missing, too. GOOD LUCK!!!

  • Also you might want to set a trap outside. Put some food like can tuna and sardines with a blanket over the trap. The smell might bring her around. Someone suggested this to me when my inside cat got out. It worked. Good luck. I was crazy when my cat got out. Please keep us posted.
