It was a long cold summer that year • Amy Vogel • Knit & crocheted wool • 60" x 60"

Check out this week’s TimeOut Chicago. I review of Thomas Rapai: Nowhere Else to Go and Amy Vogel: U.P. at 40000.

The focus of the issue is Chicago’s rock scene. On the cover is Andrew Bird, who was recently spotted at a 65GRAND opening, and whose recent albums have sported cover art by Jay Ryan. There is a feature on “drone” music. Like all movements or genres in the arts, it is a tag participants are reluctant to accept, and one that people will use anyway because it is easy and seems to fit. At any rate, it is a type of music I am very interested in. It highlights the likes of Lichens, Number None, White/Light and on. Without mentioning him by name, the piece refers to the music series Terrence Hannum curated at the MCA as part of his recent 12x12.
