The Chicago Promoters Ordinance: Alive and Kicking the Crap out of Independent Music

So, remember the Chicago Promoter's Ordinance? It's probable that a lot of people don't, or they remember the success the Chicago Music Community had in postponing a vote on the Ordinance in May, 2008. That was a significant win, but it's not the end of the story. A revision of the Ordinance is likely to go to a vote soon. The revision is still a very poorly written piece of legislation that will greatly harm Chicago's arts community.

In addition to its usual First Friday festivities, on March 6 the Old Town School of Folk Music (4544 N. Lincoln Avenue) is holding a Free-Speech Jam and screening the documentary Chicago's Promoters' Ordinance Kills Independent Music: A Documentary from the Street (more information on the documentar available at: Doors open at 5:00 PM. The Jam begins at 6:30 PM, and the documentary will be screened back-to-back in the school's Resource Center beginning at 7:30 PM. $5 donation.
