We had a number of performances scheduled at the Cook County jail, but a high profile case started at the same time and our events had to be postponed. We were disappointed but got the chance to meet with some of the people in charge who were really cool and we hope to work together in the years to come.
Nearby the jail there here a few high schools in a real bad part of Chicago. These kids constantly have to deal with gang violence, poverty and the influence of drugs. We spent time with the kids, playing, taking and teaching them as well as giving them some different things to read, music to listen to and little gifts.
