Black and White Night : Artists at the Hollywood Lounge

leave a comment »

Last week I had the opportunity to get back in touch with my art school roots. My friend Talie invited me to a poetry/art/music night she hosts at the Hollywood Lounge in Chicago and asked if I could shoot a few pics to document the evening. It was an open mic night  as well as a gallery showing for a local artist. It was great to be in the presence of some very talented people. They have a gift for the spoken word and I was mesmerized by their skill as well as their courage to share their deepest thoughts on the stage.

For those of you interested in attending, Black and White night is hosted at the Hollywood Lounge  in Chicago ( 3301 West Bryn Mawr Avenue Chicago, IL 60659) every other Wednesday night. The next one will be this Wednesday December 3rd 2010. You can find more information on their Facebook page HERE .

Meet LUNCHBOX?  That’s right, LUNCHBOX? How awesome is that for a name?!
