Lately I’ve been inundated with hard, heavy, ear-splitting rock. Over the last few weeks Chicago Metal Factory, Taste of Chaos, SOiL, Bobaflex and The Autumn Offering have given me neck aches from all the head-banging I’ve been doing. While I do love that genre, sometimes it’s good to slow down a bit.
Anna Vogelzang is part of the singer/songwriter “family” in Chicago. I first heard her at Jeff Brown‘s birthday concert and got the full-fledged treatment when I co-hosted her podcast with Chicago Acoustic Underground. That show won’t be out for a couple of weeks, but in the meantime listen to “Family Band”. With her comfortable guitar playing and quirky lyrics it’s the perfect way to relax and put a smile on your face.
Her next Chicago show is at Hotti Biscotti’s (3545 W. Fullerton) open mic on March 26. And it’s free!
