    In Book Swap, a regular feature that is entirely unique, about books, and not at all related to the music feature In Rotation, a Reader staffer recommends three to five books and then asks a local wordsmith, literary enthusiast, or publishing-adjacent professional to do the same. It is awesome.

  7. Carnitas La Esquinita hides in plain sightRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Nov 16 | Chicago Reader

    I have a longtime friend of a certain fleshy girth who, one Saturday morning, stood outside the window of Pilsen's great Carnitas Don Pedro, in front of its famous mountain of steaming, glistening porky goodness, and thoughtfully observed, "This is what I look like when I get out of the shower." The sustaining power of those hot, lard-simmered chunks of pork, slabs of skin, and ribbons of offal - especially exceptional on weekends, when the line goes out the door and turnover is high - is such that I can usually block this horrifying image when I'm confronted by them.

  8. Bros do Prose brings hip-hop to Neverland in Peter PanRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Nov 16 | Chicago Reader

    After the bows and applause on the night I attended this two-actor rendition of J.M. Barrie's classic story, a little girl in the audience wailed to her mother, "I don't want to leave!" It's a completely understandable reaction to this enchanting 90-minute one-act from the troupe Bros do Prose, directed by Christian Libonati and starring Breon Arzell and Ella Raymont. While Arzell and Raymont primarily portray Peter Pan and Wendy, they also play a multitude of characters using accents, body language, props, and, most notably, infinite energy.

  17. The Marías are back and dreamier than ever on Superclean, Vol. IIRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Nov 15 | Chicago Reader

    The songs of the MarA as' have a laid-back vibe, but every guitar riff in their songs feels like it was precisely placed in an artfully curated sonic atmosphere that calls to mind grainy films from the golden age of Hollywood. The Los Angeles-based project of Josh Conway and MarA a-who goes by her first name only in artistic settings, a la BeyoncA -have been breaking hearts with their dreamy psychedelic soul since 2016.

    Some musicians are intrigued by the charms of eclecticism, but when it comes to the sound of his music, Atlanta R&B singer 6LACK never wavers from his focus. If you've heard his 2016 hit Prblms , you know what to expect from this year's East Atlanta Love Letter : slow-to-midtempo grooves, minimal fuzzed-out beats with ambient synth chill, and laid-back vocals that shift between Auto-Tune whining and quasi hip-hop talk- singing.
