Blues Ain’t Nothin’ But… Cinema


“Blues Before Sunrise” is Steve Cushing’s weekly all-night radio program with an archive so vast that tunes get replayed only about once every four years. The Jazz Record Mart hosts the annual Blues Before Sunrise Film Festival on Sunday, December 1 (that’s tomorrow) from noon until 6:30 or so, featuring owner Bob Koester’s 16mm collection. It’s at 27 East Illinois and it’s free.
