Tonight: Every third Thursday, Berwyn resident Matt Scharpf hosts a Nashville-style Songwriter's Night where hiself and two or three other Chicagoland songwriters will share the stage and take turns performing and talking a bit about their respective songs.
Please note that “Nashville-style” does not necessarily mean Dwight Yoakam covers all night. It means that just like in Nashville, the focus will be for the audience to very quietly listen to and allow everyone to enjoy the music. Talking is not allowed during the playing of a song.
And Matt will use his best judgment to bring in quality players that will be very enjoyable to listen to.
It has been and should continue to be a great night and it is free.
Show will start somewhere around 8:45 at The Friendly at 6733 W. Roosevelt Road, and if you have never been, The Friendly is a great joint to hang out in and Autre Monde is literally steps away for a memorable dinner before hand.
Starting this Friday 22 will be reopening its space as SHOP 22. For the next couple of months it will be operating as a retail store featuring unique designer goods and affordable artwork. Many of the featured designers are from Chicago, with a few from right here in Berwyn!
To celebrate the reopening, 22 will be having a Launch Party on Saturday June 30th from 7-9 pm.

Sunday: The brass band enjoyed at Christmas at Trinity Community Church will be preforming this Sunday the 24th at Trinity Church, outside weather permitting and hopefully it will not be too hot.
This event will start around noon and the board of missions will be offering lunch and snacks at reasonable prices. You will be hearing a lot of Patriotic songs some of which you will be asked to sing along with.
Please bring a lawn chair so you can be comfortable as this event lasts an hour. Bring your friends and neighbors to this FREE event.
Come on out and have some fun and get in the spirit for the 4th of July, our independence day. Hope to see you there.
