For those of you in the Chicago area, hip lit mag/broadsheet quarterly THE2NDHAND is having its release party tomorrow night at Ronny's. The theme of the night is a twist on weddings, and one of the featured performers is none other than Jill Summers, who, with her sister Susie Kirkwood will be debuting a new shadow puppet story show--HOTEL--, which she describes as a Victorian ghost story! Woooo! Here are the details:
THE2NDHAND No. 28 release party -- it's a wedding! Thursday, June 26, 8 PM, $6@ Ronny's, 2103 N. California Hosted by C.T. Ballentine & featuring: Lauren Pretnar, Chris Bower, Jill Summers & Susie Kirkwood, Fred Sasaki & Jacob Knabb, Kyle Beachy and the music of the Spectacles.
If you don't know about Jill Summers, you should. She's a writer of fiction and audio shorts and one half of a shadow puppeteer sister act, among other talents! If you can't make the THE2NDHAND shindig, check out her website for more information, and to read/listen to some of her work.
