Evanston Live's Third Edition

The Evanston American Legion was again host to Evanston Live, Evanston’s retro-hip variety show. The standing-room-only show kicked off with original music by Jeff Libman, Evanston author, musician, and educator. His  piece “Alien,” written a decade ago, is sharply relevant today given recent events. Host and creator Tammy Job followed Mr. Libman, welcoming guests and performers, and sharing a personal vignette on creative writing.

The Art of Evolution Theatre Company founder William Eason, and Spiro Tsaggaris, recent Evanston Township High School graduate, DePaul student, and actor, performed a scene from an original piece entitled “Afrofuturism and Why Black Lives Matter,” which imagines a conversation between civil rights leaders and a contemporary young African American man.

Evanston friends and dads Pete Rodriguez and Steve Krupkin, whose frequent dog-walking sessions give life to absurdities in modern parenting, shared a comedic duo piece that had the audience in stitches.

The evening closed with Evanston Live’s welcoming the band Chicken Bone for a power set of upbeat tunes that kept the Legion rocking late into the night. The next Evanston Live show is scheduled for April 29. Tickets will be on sale in early March and can be found on Facebook at liveat42.
