notes from a journey through Chicago's cultural landscape...

My Photo
Location: Chicago, Illinois, United States

...this is not about me, this is about my city - a living document of Chicago's art's scene, a memoir of concerts I've been to & performances I've seen, a jaded scribe's small sampling of the many offerings of this vibrant cosmopolitan city that I'm lucky enough to call home. I work the city as the city works me, all of us connected in varying degrees, here i pay tribute to our evolving soundtrack, I plug praiseworthy endeavors & try to give a little back... Together with my peers we paint this crossroads with every shade we can find, in your mediums & mine, i run with deep house deviants & wrinkled blues cats, youngun' b-boy crews & quirky circus brats, snobby eclectic DJs & electric painters laboring on projected displays, film makers armed with mini-DVs & picky chefs sculpting tricky masterpieces out of vegan grease... i kick it with slam poets & theater geeks, powerbook producers & fashionista freaks, photoshop fellowships & choreographer hips, while jazz cats blow digital epics through pursed bebop lips... i'm at the nexus of the next wave of Chicago sound - this is where i share the stories of all the beauty I've found...

Belmont Harbor Yacht Club

Visited an old friend at Belmont Harbor, spent an hour chilling by the boats, as she was in town to assist her father & brother who were competing in an elite regatta on Lake Michigan. Sat at the lakefront and watched the water darken as the sun set over the city behind us... That was my first visit to the actual pier of the Chicago Yacht club, I've passed it on rollerblades a million times but I've never actually been inside. They're hosting a North American Championship Regatta over the course of this week, and a horde of sailing professionals from around the world were there in force. It was nice to see folks who are serious about their skills congregated around some world-class was a little slice of the waterfront I don't sample much these days, since I moved inland to Logan Square a year ago... Must...get...more...LAKEFRONT...
