it looks like all the attention from the blogosphere and the phone calls to aldermen in the city really made a difference and as a result, the ordinance is being tabled. that doesn't mean it's dead but now the city will hear out people's opinions from the entertainment community before trying to sneak some bogus legislation through. whew!
so it looks like the city of chicago is at it again, this time trying to pass legislation THIS WEDNESDAY MAY 14 that would effectively shut down DIY shows in small clubs across the city.
