Tuesday Funk #132: Oct. 1, 2019


The October edition of Tuesday Funk is going to be special -- not only will reader Gint Aras have a brand new book out, but we'll be showcasing writers from Belt Publishing's The Chicago Neighborhood Guidebook, including Ann C. Logue, Scott Smith, F. Amanda Tugade, Sarah Steimer and Gint Aras himself.

Come join us in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf in Andersonville! As always, admission to Tuesday Funk is free, but you must be 21 to attend. Doors open at 7pm sharp (tables tend to fill up fast, so don't dawdle!) and the show will start at 7:30pm. Please RSVP on Facebook -- and while you're there, maybe like and follow us so you get our announcements right in your stream.

September Debrief

The day after Labor Day can be kind of subdued -- the summer is "over," school's back in session, and summer work hours are gone. But the crowd at your favorite eclectic monthly reading series was large and engaged.

The show started off with cohost Andrew Huff reading an excerpt of his novel in progress. Next, Tiffany Gholar shared pieces from her book, The Sum of its Parts: Artwork, 2014-2018. Then Tony Breed told a funny story about his first trip to Europe as a college student.

We took a break to refill our drinks, then Edward Moses read three short pieces about his life. And Kate Harding closed out the show with a thrilling tale of a neighborhood mayoral race -- for pets.

We'll admit it, it was all pretty great. You should see for yourself by coming to the next show! We'll be back at Hopleaf on Tuesday, Oct. 1, where we'll feature readings by Ann C. Logue, Scott Smith, F. Amanda Tugade, Sarah Steimer and Gint Aras. Hope to see you then!

Tuesday Funk #131 is tonight!


Wrap up summer with our dashing and talented readers! Featuring Tiffany Gholar, Kate Harding, Tony Breed, Edward Moses, and Tuesday Funk co-host Andrew Huff. We'll try not to think about our impending 8-month winter.

Meet Our Readers: Edward Moses

In 2000, Edward Moses's diverse musical upbringing began to suddenly make a lot of sense, as the whirlwinds of albums his parents had at home merged with his sudden discovery of Hip-Hop and Slam Poetry, all in a single summer. 17 years later, he's shared stages with Rap luminaries like Aesop Rock and Gift of Gab, all while trying to float his sneaker habit by disguising himself as a mild-mannered IT specialist at a Chicago start-up. Hailed as one of those "your favorite Chicago indie rapper's favorite indie rapper"-sort of folks, but also likely to talk your ear off about anything from the woes and Sisyphean doldrums of finding rare House records, to tiering systems in Capcom fighting games (yes, seriously).

Please join Moses and our other amazing readers on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf. Doors open at 7pm, and the show starts at 7:30. It's free, and 21-and-over. Please RSVP on Facebook.
