  3. RIP Lee Sandlin, longtime Reader writerRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Dec 15 | Chicago Reader

  5. For a Pilsen nonprofit, gentrification makes promoting the arts a double-edged swordRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Dec 8 | Chicago Reader

    The steps leading up to Dvorak Park's community center on Cullerton Street are chalked with large-scale images of sugar skulls, or calaveras in Spanish. It's in Pilsen, after all, and although the neighborhood's changed a lot during the past several years, it's still a Mexican neighborhood at its heart.

  6. Telander welcomes Derrick Rose's stand on Eric GarnerRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Dec 8 | Chicago Reader

    Somebody was sure to say something about Derrick Rose in the Monday papers, and I was glad it was Rick Telander . Telander is moral without being a moralist, so I expected him to applaud Rose's decision to wear a T-shirt Saturday that said "I can't breathe" without the squirming that goes with wishing, even so, that Rose hadn't done it.

    The Swedish trio called Tape has been creating stylistically elusive, lyrically beautiful, and texturally rich instrumental music for 15 years now, embracing its boundary-dissolving proclivities all the while. The group recently released their sixth album Casino , and the trio has never sounded more melodically generous while conveying a gorgeous, mesmerizing, and enveloping vibe.

    Saturday Dec 6 | Chicago Reader

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants voters to know the story of how he took office and began transforming Chicago from a decaying pit of corruption into a capital of opportunity that leaves no one behind, inspiring a rainbow coalition of children to come together and cheer-literally. The narrative may gloss over a few facts, but Emanuel has been crafting it for four years now, and he retold it again when he officially launched his reelection campaign on Saturday.

  13. Tablecloth skirt takes the cake at the Hyde Park Art CenterRead the original story w/Photo

    Saturday Dec 6 | Chicago Reader

    To celebrate the Hyde Park Art Center 's 75th anniversary, Kathleen had the idea of making a skirt out of a vinyl tablecloth and having the artists at the gala scribble on it with a Sharpie. Ultimately someone talked her out of being a live canvas, but the fiery red outfit still stole the show with its color, texture, and bold accessories.

  18. Swedish saxophonist Jonas Kullhammar channels the past on his strong new recordRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Dec 5 | Chicago Reader

    Few musicians in this young century have provided me with as much consistent enjoyment and shown as much artistic depth as the Swedish reedist Jonas Kullhammar, a historically minded player who bucks the tendency of younger European jazz musicians to downplay if not denigrate the importance of American jazz. Sonny Rollins and, especially, John Coltrane loom heavily in Kullhammar's playing, and he does little to distance himself from his heroes.
