All-ages show

Real Midnight…finds Russell and Nero memorializing the intense, freewheeling, all-too-fleeting attachments of youth, eulogizing fellow dreamers and meditating on mortality…They show us a way to fully live with the awareness that nothing’s forever and everything’s at stake.”  NPR First Listen


“With echoes of deep gospel in Russell’s voice as she sings over a mix of electric guitar, resonant piano, and percussion… at once uplifting and a little melancholy.”   Wall Street Journal

Birds of Chicago’s newest album “Real Midnight” was produced by Joe Henry in his Garfield House studio in Los Angeles. “Real Midnight” follows the band’s self-titled 2012 debut. Russell and Nero, who are the core members of a rotating cast of collaborators, also released a concert album, “Live From Space,” in 2013. The pair began working together in 2012 while Nero was fronting JT and the Clouds and Russell was singing as part of the Canadian roots collective Po’ Girl.
Russell and Nero describe their music as secular gospel, and Russell’s powerful voice certainly provides the gospel feel.
 
Big talent in small venues at affordable prices for early shows! That’s been Friends of Bob’s formula for the past 23 years. We’re not sure exactly why, but attendance has been much reduced for our past 3 concerts. Since we set ticket prices in anticipation of a big crowd, these 3 concerts have lost quite a bit of money. Our membership donations help counter such losses. We ask for $10, though we’ll take more if that suits you. (Membership donations over $10 are tax-deductible since FoB is a 501 c 3 not-for-profit organization.)
Since our last newsletter, the following commendable people have sent in dues to FoB, Box 59, Battle Ground, IN 47920:

Big thanks to all the volunteers who have donated their time to make FoB happen. Thank you to our ticket outlets: Von’s, JL Records, and McGuire Music. And thank you to the South Street Smokehouse for their generosity.
