Valentine's at The Nite Light Cafe...

This past Saturday night (February 14), I went with a friend who lives in Berwyn to see her brother perform with a band member at The Nite Light Cafe located in Berwyn. The Nite Light Cafe is a Christian non-profit venue that are open to any bands (Christian, Hardcore, Alternative) to perform at the place.

One indie rock band, The Green Tangerines, impressed me and I think they were one of the top bands that performed that evening.

Below is 2 minutes of the band performing the cover "I Will Possess Your Heart" by Death Cab For Cutie.

  1. Berwyn is a happening place. I'd urge you to check out the 16th Street Theater production of Fires in the Mirror. I saw it last weekend and it was superb. Here's a blurb from their website.

    FIRES in the MIRROR
    by Anna Deavere Smith
    Directed by Ann Filmer
    January 28 – February 28, 2009

    Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Blacks vs. Jews. Four actresses embody 26 different perspectives in this stunning exploration of the events and emotions surrounding the 1991 racially-charged riots.

    "The most compelling and sophisticated view of urban racial and class conflict that one could hope to encounter.” --New York Times

    Kelly Kleiman on WBEZ says, "Spectacular! Don't miss it!" Tom Witom in Pioneer Press says, "gritty, insightful, compelling...provides a critical view -- and fertile ground for discussion -- of the deep-seated emotions on both sides."
    Fabrizio O. Almeida in New City says, "gripping subject matter... searing theatricality that dazzles the eyes and ears."
    Venus Zarris gives 4 Stars! on Chicago Stage Review and says "If theater is storytelling then this is theater in the grandest order. Filmer and her remarkable cast take this powerful script, originally produced as a one-woman show, and flawlessly create a riveting ensemble piece... a powerful dramatic triumph!"
