Last week, I worked on a short film for Mofest‘s 48-hour film challenge. We had a great team  and Peter did a killer job on the editing. It’ll be exciting to see it on the big screen.

Film fans get out tomorrow and support the Chicago filmmaking scene tomorrow at the Portage Theater.

Liquid Soul and American English at Streeterfest

My colleague Brian Quarles and his band, Liquid Soul, hit the stage at Streeterfest. The setup just east of the Magnificent Mile was probably one of the most mellow street fests I’ve ever been to. Although West Fest, Wicker Park Fest and Burgerfest in Roscoe Village serve a younger and more vibrant crowd that doesn’t have a virtual picnic in the grass while the music is blazing.

Regardless, Liquid Soul snapped as always and was followed by none other than American English, a Beatles cover band. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cover band play, mostly because a cover band could seemingly never stack up to the original. But I have to give it up to American English. They had the accents down, they sounded solid instrumentally and vocally and they were all-around enjoyable.
