Chicago, IL — GMan Tavern is pleased to announce its latest monthly event series: a live lit / musical discussion hybrid called LINER NOTES. The series will kick off on Thursday, May 3, and will feature an eclectic lineup of speakers including DAVE HOFER [Reckless Records], LORENA CUPCAKE [Do312, Store Brand Soda], RIVKA YEKER [Hooligan Magazine, Audiotree], and local singer-songwriter/burlesque performer UMA BLOO. A full event announcement can be found below.
Liner Notes is a monthly storytelling series where writers, musicians, and members of the arts community reflect on the albums that changed their lives—for better or worse. Whether they’re delving into a first-time record store purchase, a life-saving breakup album, or a pivotal recent discovery, these oral histories will remind us how and why music is the ultimate unifier.
Each speaker will spend 15 minutes delving into the canonical and personal significance of their chosen album. Discussion formats will range from PowerPoint presentations, track-by-track analyses, essay readings, and more. The night will be rounded out by a rotating specialty cocktail—the special on May 3 being a “Fiona Aperol Spritz.”
The second installment of Liner Notes will take place on Thursday, June 7. Stay tuned for lineup announcements and more updates.
