Shame That Tune
Shame That Tune
"Shame That Tune," a live comedy game show featuring diaries, interviews, and spontaneously-composed songs, continues at The Hideout! "Shame That Tune" is co-hosted by two of Chicago's most prodigious creative forces: Abraham Levitan (keyboardist/vocalist of Baby Teeth, Pearly Sweets, musical collaborator for The Dollar Store reading series, contributor to WBEZ's Re:sound), and Brian Costello (frontman for Johnny & the Limelites, novelist, contributor to the Chicago Reader, live talk-show host.)

On "Shame That Tune," there are three contestants. Each first spins a "Wheel of Fortune"-style wheel, divided into musical sub-genres (e.g., "Bob Dylan's Christian Phase," "Keith Richards solo," "Led Zeppelin III"). The contestant then tells an embarrassing anecdote, no more than three minutes in length (timed by a giant LED clock) from their high-school or junior-high diary. Costello then interviews the contestant for exactly five minutes while Levitan composes, on the spot, a song about the embarrassing anecdote, in the style of the musical sub-genre that came up on the wheel. The winner is determined by applause based on audience response to his/her story and the resulting song; he/she will be rewarded with generous gifts from local businesses.
