    The power of uncomfortable conversations: 'I was sick of living in an echo chamber'
    Zachary Wood, 22, has been having uncomfortable conversations his whole life. They began young, at home, with a mother who loved him fiercely and raised him to take on the world with unwavering courage and intellect, but whose battle with schizoaffective disorder often made her verbally and physically abusive.

Rebirth Brass Band carries the torch of New Orleans brass band music while pushing the genre forward

Sat 6/23, 6 PM, Temperance Beer Co., 2000 Dempster, Evanston, $30

    Rebirth Brass Band carries the torch of New Orleans brass band music while pushing the genre forward
    In a sense, New Orleans brass band music is much like acappella doo-wop. The better practitioners of either style can make you forget you're listening to a wordless art form where the music does the talking. On the Louisiana home turf of the Rebirth Brass Band, that legacy is something to be taken seriously.
