    Tuesday Jan 13 | Chicago Reader

    Out of more than 200 submissions, guest curator Jessie Ann Foley, a CPS teacher and author of The Carnival at Bray , selected three very different coming-of-age stories.

    Dec 25, 2014 | Chicago Reader

    These northwest Illinois garage rockers conquered their local scene but couldn't get past their lead guitarist's strict Mennonite parents. These trailblazing 70s country-rockers never succeeded like the Eagles, but you can see them play for less than a zillion dollars.

    Monday Jan 12 | Chicago Reader

    In Cragin, around the intersection of Fullerton and Cicero, there's a small pocket of businesses that cater to folks hailing from the southwestern Mexican state of Guerrero; specifically a couple of taquerias and a representative office of the state government. Both taquerias, Taqueria Cotzio and La Guerrerense, serve the standard array of antojitos and platillos, including handmade tortillas, but both also serve something on weekends you don't frequently find anywhere outside of Guerrero itself.

    Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice , which opens Friday in Chicago, continues a run of ambitious recent films-Michel Gondry's Mood Indigo , Alex Ross Perry's Listen Up, Philip -that try to convey in distinctly cinematic fashion what it's like to read a distinctly literary author.

  9. Baker Miller says kiss my gritsRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jan 6 | Chicago Reader

    Had I made it there in time Baker Miller Bakery & Millhouse's grits might have made my list of the tasty things I ate in 2014 . Built on a foundation of the shop's house-ground cornmeal, which is fine and smooth, with just the right amount of grit to remind you you're not eating baby food, they're improved by roasted mushrooms that take on a chewy texture and an intensity of flavor that approaches jerky.

  10. Galavant is just what the singing, dancing doctor orderedRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Jan 6 | Chicago Reader

    As a society we greeted 2015 from the fetal position, sore in our backs and tushies from taking everything 2014 had and without lubrication. All of the things that made 2014 terrible, particularly as the year neared its end, have been rehashed ad nauseum at this point, but it's safe to say that a lot of Americans entered the new year begging for some levity.

    Tuesday Jan 6 | Chicago Reader

    This is the time of year during which I play catch-up, perusing year-end lists to see what albums I might have overlooked last year. Thanks to British avant-music magazine the Wire I revisited Earth's Primitive and Deadly , which I initially wrote off as too cheesy only to find upon another listen is perhaps the band's most humorous and colorful album to date.

    Monday Jan 5 | Chicago Reader

    Swedish trumpeter Goran Kajfes has been a notable presence on the Scandinavian scene for about 15 years, and while he's a superb and highly skilled jazz improviser, most of his work has triumphantly existed in the cracks and crevices between genres. He's probably best known for his key role in Oddjob, an amped-up quintet finding evermore possibilities in the electric music of Miles Davis.
