My character in my retro-spooky space punk band, the Earth Program is a
half-woman half-robot who was reconstructed after a UFO from the Outer Twilight
crash-landed on top of her. Or so the story goes...
I suppose it is time to introduce myself
to RFC readers, since I began writing on here at the beginning of the month,
with no explanation. I wear no veil. My goal on RFC is to provide readers with
a weekly update on live events in Chicago. Sometimes I write about friends’
projects that deserve attention, sometimes I seek out shows I think are worth
writing about. No matter what, my focus is live music in Chicago and community.
And I would love to hear from you!
I see myself as serving several functions in the
scene: blogger, promoter, friend, musician, and most recently, an actual music
stand for Johnny ofJohnny
and the Limelitesat theWhite
(more to come on this matter). My latest project, theEarth Programis a multi-media affair, and that means
none of my other pursuits shall conflict with my alliance with the Program. We
are a group of hardworking individuals with a universal desire for a lasting
creative project that incorporates and brings together a community, all in the
name of music.
If you’d like to
check out our debut DIY album, “Invade!,” you can listen to ithere. More importantly, I encourage you to come out to our Album
Release Party at Ronny’s on Friday, January 29. I personally promise a good
show and great time.
If you see me and have been enjoying some of my posts, or just genuinely like my purple pants or shoes (I wear a lot of purple these days), please come shake my bionic hand, and let’s talk about the future— of sci-fi and music, of shoes and ships and sealing wax... of cabbages and kings... (and why the sea is boiling hot... or whether pigs have wings...)
