Performance/Theater


The Crooked Mouth
with Jeff Weisfeld Band and Chris Sullivan

SATURDAY, MARCH 5 — 8:00PM

at Center Portion Art & Activism
2850 1/2 W. Fullerton Avenue, Chicago, IL (map)

What better time to harmonize on themes of loss and forbearance than during the waning days of winter? Join your hosts, The Crooked Mouth, for a musical evening that will surely harken forth the coming of spring. (Or at least, entertain you all, helping you forget for a few hours just how very, very sick you are of the slush.)

Our musical compatriots, the Jeff Weisfeld Band will be joining us, and if you have not yet heard them, you are in for a treat. We’ll say one word: Sousaphone. Our good friend, Chris Sullivan, will also take the stage with his guitar, in the inimitable way that only he can.

It’s also the day before a certain band member’s birthday—if you want cake, you gotta come to Center Portion Saturday night!
