Homeroom's longest-running program returns for the spring with a rockin' lineup of well-known Chicago bands.
The Songwriter Showcase emphasizes the craft of songwriting by inviting songwriters from diverse musical backgrounds to perform without a backing band or a full amplifier rig.
The Showcase features four songwriters per event who are each encouraged to discuss their song-writing processes and influences in an intimate environment that fosters focused listening and promotes open interaction with the audience. By stripping away the style and posture of a full band, songwriters’ techniques and philosophies become unobscured.
The performers for Songwriter Showcase are:
- Lindsey Charles of the Cell Phones
- Dave Davison of Maps and Atlases
- Justin Petertil of Love Raid
- Nick Ammerman of Scare Quotes
