Every once in a while, we get to play a show that stands out from all the others. It could be because the audience was extra special or the venue was beautiful or…well…all sorts of things that serve to separate it from all the hundreds (thousands?) of other gigs we’ve played.
In late September this year, we got to play just such a gig. It was fundraiser show for the Glenwood Sunday Market in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago and it was my first introduction to the concept of “glamping” (def: To camp in style, comfort, and/or luxury while still experiencing the great outdoors; to go glamping).
We set up in this amazing backyard and played under the stars and the beautiful lights and then sat down to an absolutely delicious dinner prepared with ingredients from the Sunday Market (a farmers market). The wine, food, friendly people, and the atmosphere led to the whole thing being a beautiful night out. Now we just hope they ask us back next time!
And, lucky for us, the fabulous Cara Spitzner was on hand to take this (and many other) gorgeous pictures of the whole evening.
