Chicago Chronicles - David Boykin & the Dorchester Projects - April 22nd & 29th, 2011

I have been travelling, playing, working, dreaming between Minneapolis and Chicago looking to expand my Creative Realm, and to add flow to the migration of creative people who connect these two Midwestern creative powerhouse cities.  I'll be introducing you to artists that move me - hope you connect with them as well.

David has been in Residency at the Dorchester Projects for March and April and will culminate w/ two evenings of live, recorded performance, April 22nd and 29th, 2011 at 7:00pm

The event I went to on April 9th was warm, inviting and exciting - with creative souls of all sorts, and all ages, mixing, talking, eating, listening, and exploring the house, listening room, book, music and slide collections in these two buildings owned by Chicago Cultural Planner and South Side icon Theaster Gates. toasty and inviting as a cultural fire needs to on!
