Let's Twist Out Cancer featuring: Jesse Palter and the Alter Ego
Let's Twist Out Cancer featuring: Jesse Palter and the Alter Ego
Jesse Palter and The Alter Ego is the brain child of Jesse Palter (Detroit/Chicago) and Sam Barsh(Chicago/New York). After meeting in 2006, they began collaborating on original music that has been making waves amongst their audiences and contemporaries alike.
Both established musicians and dynamic performers in their own right (Palter received honors as "Outstanding Jazz Vocalist" 3 years in a row at the Detroit Music Awards and Barsh has toured and recorded with the likes of Cassandra Wilson, Avishai Cohen, Boyz II Men, Bobby McFerrin and The Brand New Heavies, among others), The Alter Ego is creating a niche for themselves by blending catchy hooks, club-worthy beats, and captivating lyrics while maintaining the spirit of their jazz and soul roots.

Laser Love Bursts from the Womb, NES Zapper in Hand

As the illegitimate love child of a neon rainbow and the 8-bit soundtrack to Mega Man 2, Illinois’ own Laser Love has blazed a new path in the world of pseudo-celebrity-real-fake-rap. In just a few short years, the Laser Love live show moved from damp suburban basements to Rhode Island hot-spots and New York delis before finally embedding itself firmly into the Chicago music milieu. The Laser, whose influences range from junior-high love affairs and mid-70s Bill Cosby to the eruption of Mount Vesuvius and futons, has appeared at the Elbo Room, The Hideout and Subterranean, making heads bop, hearts throb and neither regions quiver.

Jonny Imerman, Founder of Imerman's Angels
Jonny Imerman is a young adult cancer survivor who strives to make sure no one
fights cancer without the support of someone who has already triumphed over the
disease. After being diagnosed with testicular cancer at the age of 26, Jonny decided
to found Imerman Angels, a non-profit organization, which carefully matches a person
touched by cancer (a cancer fighter or survivor) with someone who has fought and
survived the same type of cancer (a Mentor Angel). Imerman Angels now has more
than 4,000 cancer survivors and more than 1,500 caregivers in its network, and has
been featured by dozens of news organizations including The Wall Street Journal, Harpo
Radio’s “Oprah and Friends” with Dr. Oz, NBC5 Chicago, CBS2 Chicago, ABC7 Chicago,
ESPN Radio Chicago, Chicago Sun-Times, Detroit Free Press, LIVESTRONG Quarterly, and
Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing. Jonny received the 2010 Jefferson Award for Public
Service; 2010 University of Michigan Humanitarian Service Award; 2009 Ulman Cancer
Fund For Young Adults ‘Hope Award’; and 2007 Daily Candy ‘Sweetest Thing’ Award.
Jonny grew up in Bloomfield Hills, MI and lives in Chicago.
