I just received word that a really great woman I know from another (national) forum will be performing in Chicago tomorrow night. I was trending toward Grant Park symphony but think I will make this my pre-marauder's destination instead. Anyone else think they might be interested?

At this month’s Pride edition of Sappho’s Salon we are honored to present the internationally acclaimed women’s music legend, Deidre McCalla. Since coming of age in New York City’s folk music heyday, McCalla has released five albums, (three on the Olivia record label) and performed everywhere from the main stage at Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival to Carnegie Hall.
Opening for McCalla will be Chicago-based folk-rock singer and songwriter Monica Del Castillo.
Guest host Vernita Gray is a legend in her own right. A long-time civil rights activist, and Chicago Gay and Lesbian Hall of Fame inductee, Gray’s life of adventure and activism is currently being chronicled in a biography by Tracy Baim and Owen Keehnen.
