It's an all-acoustic evening of singer-songwriter goodness with Chicago's own Tari Follett and special guests from sunny Atlanta - Last Chance Runaround! Come on out and support two independent acts and three talented musicians...

Tari Follett is a classically trained vocalist, a self-taught guitarist, and a bluesy folk-rock singer-songwriter. Since moving to Chicago in 2001, she's played both alone and with various other players in venues like Gunther Murphy's, Heartland Cafe, Subterranean, The Note, HotHouse, and the Beat Kitchen. She's played for fancy underground supper clubs, empty cafes on the South Side, fundraisers and benefits, and just about everything in between. Once she even got to write a song with Shakespeare (okay, not exactly with)!

Last Chance Runaround is a new musical combo hailing from Atlanta, Georgia. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Scott Roberts and harpist/vocalist Sue Volkert's partnership began in 2005 and was fueled by a mutual love for 1980s jangle-rockers Winter Hours as well as an instant admiration for each other. The duo have used their influences and friendship as a springboard for a rare and magical collaboration that has been the most productive and rewarding either of these veteran musicians have ever experienced. They are following up their 2005 self-titled EP and their appearance on the 2008 Winter Hours Tribute CD, A Few Uneven Rhymes, with the 2009 release of their debut full-length Alter Idem, a melodically-rich 12 song collection of Roberts originals and well-chosen covers. Last Chance Runaround hopes that the aptly named Alter Idem (Latin for "the same, but different") will be the aural equivalent of meeting a new and old friend simultaneously.
