Welcome to 2014! The holidays are officially over, but we’ll be celebrating as usual at Swim Café on January 12, with a little more nostalgia than usual because this will be our LAST SHOW AT SWIM. As you may have seen in an earlier post, Swim Café has closed, but will open just for us next Sunday, so be there!
Kicking off our January lineup is none other than Don Hall. Don works as the Events Director for WBEZ, the House Manager for NPR/WBEZ’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! and the caucasian host of The Moth in Chicago. Prior to joining WBEZ, Don served as Founding and Executive Director of Chicago’s fringey WNEP Theater as well as taught seventh and eighth grade music for Chicago Public Schools, managed a tobacco shop, worked as a facilities manager for a massage school and played his trumpet professionally. He is a community organizer, a rabble rouser, a storyteller, and a generally cranky S.O.B.
Come see Don at our final Swim Café show next Sunday, 1357 W. Chicago Avenue. Doors open at 7:30. Bring Your Own Everything (food, drink, and sassy self.)
