Memory Lame: A Bad Songwriters Night
A night of great Chicago songwriters playing their absolute worst songs! Cringe and cry tears of laughter (or pain) as artists reach into the past and unearth things that never should have seen the light of day again.

Anna Holmquist is the whole package. From writing songs on the piano in middle school, to playing in groups as diverse as the kooky indie rockers The Curls and their main songwriting project Ester, music has provided Anna a consistent way to process life experiences and experiment with form and performance. Once, a well-written jingle even won them a year's supply of pasta.

Since 2011 Anna has been a lynchpin of the Chicago DIY scene, criss-crossing the city’s network of basements and bars in an assortment of groups, forging alliances across all manners of Chicago creatives. All the while Anna has been steadily collecting memories, emotions, and experiences, and translating them into song. This patient and careful work provided the material for Curtains, the idyllic debut album by Ester released last year that garnered praise from the likes of the Chicago Tribune and Midwest Action.

Hot on the heels of performances at Pitchfork Music Festival 2018 and SXSW 2019 with the Curls and a TNK Fest show with Ester, Anna is a performer you're gonna want to say you saw here first.
