Glad Cloud is a monthly series that celebrates the rich landscape of Chicago musicians working with ambient music. Curated by Benjamin Mjolsness, the series provides an opportunity for ambient artists to color the air, walls, and liquids of the Whistler in a deliberately non-intrusive manner. Visitors can enjoy their cocktails and companions while the music envelops the room around them.
Evan Hydzik, formerly of Pillars and Tongues, now plays a variety of musics around Chicago. For the set on the 17th, he will be joined by Doug Tesnow on bass clarinet and Martin Hreczuch on kalimba.
Brent Gutzeit is a big fat man that sometimes does stuff. Tonight he plays with young buck Aaron Zarzutzki.
