WES JOHN CICHOSZ w/ Lexie Levy - 8PM | $10

  • Uncommon Ground (Edgewater) 1401 West Devon Avenue Chicago, IL, 60660 United States (map)

Songwriter/Guitarist/Saxophonist Wes John Cichosz seamlessly weaves elements of rock, blues, jazz, and folk in his intensely personal writing style. Gritty slide guitar and quirky saxophone pepper the sonic landscape, and acoustic guitar-driven songs are surrounded by lush winds and piano.

Check out Wes’s new album, The Moon Threads a Needle, on Spotify or any other major streaming platform. Wes John Cichosz has written about the inspiration behind the album for The Wednesday Journal’s Artbeat and as a guest blogger for A Chicago Thing.

The Moon Threads a Needle, as the title might suggest, is at once otherworldly and human; both magical and decidedly handmade.” – Radio One Chicago

Lexie Levy -- formerly known as Lexie Bloor Band. Perpetrator of difficult-to-classify songwriting. Appreciator of craftsmanship, high art in low places, and the weird. Heavily influenced by Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Peter Gabriel, Bjork, and Joanna Newsom. Listeners who love the world class musicianship of Joni Mitchell and her band in the mid-70s will dig it.
