"Light: On the South Side" photographer on WTTW tonight!!

Hey kids,
Check out WTTW Ch. 11 "Chicago Tonight" tonight (Thursday Oct. 29) to see an interview with Michael Abramson, the photographer behind the amazing book put out by Numero Group.

Michael is an old friend of mine and his dog Hazel is a friend of my dog Caine. Last year, someone from Numero called Michael after they saw a feature on him and his photos in the Chicago Tribune magazine. I ran into Michael in the park the next day and he asked me if I had ever heard of Numero. Of course I told him how cool the label is, and he called them back and the rest is now history.

There is also a release party at the Chicago Cultural Center on Sunday. Here are the details:
The Numero Group presents: A Light On The South Side Release party, Discussion, and Social

Sunday November 1st,  2pm – 6pm Chicago Cultural Center
Discussion with Michael Abramson and Rick Kogan in the Claudia Cassidy Theater.
Reception in the G.A.R. Rotunda

Following the talk there will be a book signing and reception where Intelligentsia Coffee will be serving a special Numero-inspired creation, the 24-Carat Blend, and the Numero staff will be playing South Side classics in the G.A.R. Rotunda.
Oh, I almost forgot, the book is beautiful. And it would make a perfect Christmas or Hannukah gift for your music loving friends and/or family.
