    Mar 16, 2015 | Chicago Reader

    The nondescript brick building along an industrial stretch of Elston Avenue seems just the sort of unremarkable spot where a group of privacy advocates would congregate. Inside Pumping Station: One, an Avondale "hackerspace" where about 200 tech-obsessed tinkerers pool money to share tools and work space, the 50 seats in a second-floor room are filling fast.

    Some things we read and remember, others we read and forget, and once in a while something comes along it feels almost improper to know. A good example is the name of the play Abraham Lincoln was watching at Ford's Theatre the night of April 14, 1865, when he was assassinated.

  5. Younger was just renewed and that's a good thingRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Apr 22 | Chicago Reader

    Pop culture has a terrible habit of pitting older women against younger women . I know this because I've watched a lot of Lifetime movies, and as much as they've developed a reputation for engendering mistrust of men, a younger woman is the source of a mature woman's misery just about as often.

Wells 312-337-3992 secondcity.com $23-$48 For a comedy show, the Second City E.T.C.'s latest sketch revue, directed by Anthony LeBlanc , seems unusually poignant. The venerable theater's offerings - particularly on the main stage - have long saved room for little bursts of sentimentality, but I don't remember ever seeing a revue that felt quite as touchingly suffused with longing as this one does.

The Wrecking Crew tells one of the great untold stories of 60s pop, profiling not only Tommy Tedesco but other session players who helped define the west-coast sound .

His subsequent arrest became headline news around the world; in the wake of his criminal trial, other women came forward with allegations of sexual assault, and Strauss-Kahn fell rapidly from political power.

    Tuesday Apr 21 | Chicago Reader

    This four-CD set of the work of Ghanaian highlife pioneer E.T. Mensah compiles 69 tracks from the 50s and 60s with liner notes by producer and scholar John Collins. The seductively slinking grooves bear traces of swing, calypso, and Latin rhythms as well as local dance styles - a hybrid that not only had a profound impact on Fela Kuti but also provided a model for the integration of sounds from the African diaspora into the music of their homeland.

  19. Remembering a time when Todd Rundgren wrote incredible pop-rock songsRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Apr 21 | Chicago Reader

    I've always thought of Todd Rundgren as an alternate-universe Brian Eno . Both Rundgren and Eno are brilliant and unusual musicians who are equally, if not more, famous for their production work and use of the recording studio as they are for their own music; both wore outlandish, colorful costumes that stood out even during the glam-rock era; and both embraced digital technology even while showing a great appreciation for classical music and doo-wop.

The loss of his wife posed a practical problem for Peter and his ten surviving children: someone had to run the household, and the children had no interest in a stepmother.
