The Jungians Present Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
Heidi in Chicago writes on The Jungians present Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere in full this Friday, 2/27:
I've been a habitual member at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music, a wonderful institution in it's 50th year on the north side. It's a great way to meet folks outside of one's social circle.
It's too fun; and far cheaper than therapy. I've also been in power pop classes (Pretenders, Kinks), Rolling Stones Bowie, Clash. Dylan, The Beatles & grateful Dead are in constant rotation. Being Chicago, a lot of classes in blues. And all other kinds of music as well: country, jazz, latin, bluegrass.
Specifically, the Neil class of EKTIN is part of a series, this called 'Lunar Ensemble' (it meets on Mondays), the focuses on the roots of Americana. In the past the Lunar has covered The Band, Uncle Tupelo, Buffalo Springfield,...Harvest... next Lunar session will offer Dylan's 'Nashville Skyline'.
Often class 'graduation' is a performance in a local bar for family & friends. As long as you don't mind 8+ guitars, it's a blast.
The sessions run 8 Weeks. Next session will be a Neil Young (general) ensemble.

OTS also is a terrific place to see concerts. I've seen Gillian Welch, Steve Earle, Richard Thompson, among many. And will be going to see the legendary Loretta Lynn in April.
Yes, that's my dog.
