The First Time: First Crime

CHIRP Radio’s Live Lit and Music series, The First Time, is unlike any storytelling show in Chicago. It pairs our readers' personal stories about a First Time experience with a song performance.This unique structure allows the story to resonate with audience members as they experience the accompanying song covered by our house band, The First Time Four band. The band, has played with musicians including Robbie Fulks, Ian Hunter, Kelly Hogan, Nora O'Connor and more, and takes special care to perform unexpected song arrangements of said covers. It is hard to tell what the audience enjoys more each story or each song.The show is a benefit for CHIRP Radio.org and is hosted by The Moth champion Jenn Sodini.
