AT ST PAUL'S CULTURAL CENTER, 2215  WEST NORTH AVENUE 7PM

In the next Wicker ParkNights evening, Israel Alpizar is the guest curator, and his theme is, as the title says, "The end of days: the res- -urrection of the artist in all of us.  Israel is chosing the bands and other talents, all of whose
ideas are related to his theme.  His ideas about art are based on sacred geometry.  Sacred geometry  may be understood as a worldview of

pattern recognition, a complex system of  of religious sym-bols and structures involv-ing space, time and form. According to this belief the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred. By connecting with

New Schedule, Jam Session Night + Blog
We are beginning to put together a long range schedule for probably three Fridays a month.  Some people have asked for special themed nights and we are working on that idea and beginning to plan those.  We will announce our first themed night soon.

We are also working on an evening that will be at least half or jamSession.jpg mostly jam session with Wicker Park Nights artists and some guests.  The last jam session we did was so extraordinary.  I think there were something like 8 people playing one drum set at one point, and the music that the jam session produced was completely fresh...a cross of maybe Tom Waits and Philip Glass--and a truly rare music experience....At one point we were trying to find the bartender for about 20 minutes --we checked everywhere only to find that he was one of the people playing the drums....There were also a fair number of audience members who joined in and some that even arrived thinking that that was what the announced jam session meant:  that the audience was included.  So we are working out the details for that evening and will announce the date soon.

We have the blog up on the website, though we have not put theJon.jpg first blog article up yet:  We will have one blog written by our incredible sound man, Chicago Sound Company’s Jon Guerrero who is first and foremost a sound artist:  He has raised the level of Wicker Park Nights in a huge way,  and he has also helped a number of our individual artists.  His blog will critique and help us to learn more of the nuances, artistry and technical aspects of sound.  Another series on the blog will deal with the issues of bringing ones artistic vision to the public and not watering it down, finding a way to keep one’s voice clear and make a living with one’s art at the same time. 

Please contact us if you would like to write a blog column or an individual article or have ideas for features or sections of the blog.
