Freda Love-Smith/Blake Babies CHIRP Radio

In 2014, I released my first full-length album. As an album release show, I organized an all-day music event to benefit the Greater Chicago Food Depository, at which I played with 16 bands over the course of 13 hours. It was called, wincingly, Day Of The Dowd. We raised over $10,000 for the charity. It almost killed me.

Exactly 5 years later to the day, and against the advice of medical professionals everywhere, 
DAY OF THE DOWD 2 will take place once again at the mighty FitzGerald's Nightclub in scenic Berwyn, IL on SATURDAY, NOV. 9th from noon-midnight,

with a few key differences:

- No new album
- All different bands from last time 
- A new and wonderful beneficiary, the 

UI Health Pilsen Food Pantry
- Only 12 bands/hours this time (because I'm old) 

**THIS SHOW IS PROUD TO BE SPONSORED BY

CHIRP RADIO, 107.1 FM**

Tickets are now on sale *HERE* ($30 adults/$15 children under 12 with parent or guardian), but you can also buy them at the door at the event! Please buy early and often! (PS our silent auction table is off the HOOK this time around; you don't want to miss it...)
