Juke Joint in Chicago

I gotta get south.  I gotta get to an authentic, deep south juke joint.  I gotta experience it.  The definition of a juke joint is "an informal establishment featuring music, dancing, gambling, and drinking, primarily in the south."  For those that don’t get to the Deep South much, Firebrand Theater and Director Lili-Anne Brown decided to bring this tradition north to Chicago.  According to Brown, “The Juke Joint is where you can go and get yourself a drink or four, and hear some low-down, gutbucket musical truth. You'll want to dance a dirty boogie, or testify, or both.”  Amen.
