In Like a Lion: Start March Right with Paper Machete

chad-brad-300x166.jpgWeekly reading series Paper Machete rings in a new month this Saturday afternoon, March 1st, at the Green Mill, 4802 N. Broadway Ave.

Paper Machete, "Chicago's Weekly Live Magazine," prompts featured performers with current events and pop culture buzz, then lets them loose on the Green Mill. The resulting responses, which can range anywhere from essay readings to sketch comedy to vaudeville revue, never disappoint. Saturday's lineup includes Maggie Andersen and Sam Bailey, Sean Cusik and Dave Urlakis, Mike Lebovitz, Casey Ley, Tim Ryder and Jill Summers. Regular Chad the Bird will also make an appearance. And, as a reading at a jazz club could never be complete without music, the Machete welcomes musical guests the Modern Sounds. 3 pm, free.
