Chicago vocalist Kelly Hogan has aided and abetted everyone from Neko Case and Andrew Bird to Mavis Staples and Otis Clay, but her solo shows are where she shines the brightest. From her time fronting visionary bands, to her role as a creative, nimble, and sought-after vocalist, Hogan's every performance and recording is deeply personal and affecting work. As Kelly herself puts it, “The song is my boss. Always has been. Always will be.”
One of the most celebrated and idiosyncratic American songwriters of his generation, Mark Eitzel is best known as the leader of the iconic indie rock band American Music Club, who spun beautifully chaotic webs of guitar from Eitzel's gloomy but compassionate studies of lost souls and alcohol; since striking out on his own, Eitzel has embraced a number of different musical approaches, while his witty but downcast lyrical style has remained constant.
