What the Hell is Alt. Country?

BY MICHAEL GENGE
@ VOL 36 ON DEC 01, 2015

“I went to this summer camp in this area of southern Illinois… I signed up for two weeks. Everyone else seemed to sign up for one week so there was one point for like a week long I was there I was alone with all the counselors I started singing the canoe song… and they were like ‘oh my god, he's a buffet head! We're going to take him out for burgers and beer’.”

In What the hell is Alt Country from PechaKucha Night Chicago’s 36th Volume speaker Michael Genge discusses music that has gotten him by. In addition, he admits the roots of his life long passion for Chicago, Woodie Guthrie, Uncle Tupelo, WXRT radio and Wilco.  Here's his love song to those great musical institutions.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016.
