Movie In The Park Thursday At Buttercup

Buttercup Park Advisory Council and Chicago FilmMakers have teamed up again to make Thursday night even more fun.  First,  head over to the fantastic Argyle night Market and then come relax and watch Born in Chicago at Buttercup Park (Sheridan /Ainslie).  It starts at 8pm.

BORN IN CHICAGO // 2013, John Anderson, USA, 86 min. // Documentary Feature, music.  The untold history of a Chicago blues evolution unfolds as BORN IN CHICAGO chronicles how blues greats including Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Otis Rush, Hubert Sumlin, Junior Wells, and Sam Lay became mentors to the coterie of white middle-class aspiring musicians who became regulars at South and West Side blues clubs in the ‘50s and ‘60s. Chess Records scion Marshall Chess narrates, and recording artists including Elvin Bishop, Charlie Musselwhite, Nick Gravenites, Harvey Mandel, and Barry Goldberg tell the inside story of admiration, emulation, and ultimately, collaboration with their heroes. Archival footage features Paul Butterfield and Michael Bloomfield, the young Rolling Stones playing with Muddy Waters, and more.
