Just Us Gals: July!
3734 W Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL 60618, USA
JUST US GALS is a not-to-be-missed live comedy and music party that combines a meticulously curated lineup of the best standups, sketch comics and indie musicians in the city. For the absurdly low price of $7, JUG will rip the fabric of reality before your very eyes and build it up again as a goofy, whimsical, Prosecco-drenched paradise. After a banger of a show last month, JUST US GALS is back for July! JULY LINEUP: Jessy Morner-Ritt (Funny or Die)Lauren Oprah Walker (The Second City)Sammy Arechar (MTV, Limestone Comedy Festival)Shantira Jackson (Reductress, BET, Cards Against Humanity)Musical guest: TashaRaised in Chicago, TASHA started out where many notable Chicago artists have- participating in Young Chicago Authors at just 15. “It was writing and performing that allowed me to appreciate and love my blackness,” says TASHA. In 2016, TASHA released her first project, Divine Love. Armed with an electric guitar, she seamlessly incorporates poetry into her sets; speaking on Black joy, self-love, and radical softness. Her work for nonprofit, BYP100, is also a source of inspiration for TASHA’s art.Check her out here: https://soundcloud.com/wowtashawow JUST US GALS is produced by Naomi Spungen, Rima Parikh and Clare Austen-Smith. Music is curated by Kate Barutha. The show is monthly at Sleeping Village in Avondale. Tickets are $7 online/$10 at the door. Doors open at 7:30, show at 8.
