Chic-A-Go-Go's Jake Austen + Chaka Khan!!

Jake Austen is a completely awesome dude.  Have you heard of him?  Well, he's a name to remember and here are a couple reasons why:  

1. He writes cool articles for the Reader (like this bomb interview with CHAKA KHAN!  We love that it features Hyde Park and her early influences)
2. He publishes Roctober Magazine.
3. He is the puppeteer (and as far as I can tell main organizer) of Chicago's famous Chic-a-Go-Go.  It is an all-ages dance show featuring local bands and famous national bands too.  If you haven't gone to a Saturday or Sunday taping, you absolutely must (and tell Zigtebra so we can join you). Don't forget to bring an awesome costume.  
4. And way more!  I just found out he's Room Manager for a new space, The Promontory, in Hyde Park that was started by Bruce Finkelman of the Empty Bottle, Craig Golden of SPACE in Evanston, and Jared Wentworth of total chef incredibleness (ex: Longman & Eagle and Dusek's in Pilsen).

So thanks Jake for all you do, and for letting Zigtebra play for you at Chic-A-Go-Go.  <3
