  • Josh Friedberg @ Uncommon Ground!

    You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to be back at Uncommon Ground, Edgewater with a fun fall show for you! AND ... we're delighted to welcome Josh Friedberg to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Josh here and get your tickets!

    Josh Friedberg is a Chicago-based music historian, essayist, and singer-songwriter, as well as a writing tutor and bookseller. He hosted a radio show on CHIRP Radio (107.1 FM) for a while, and he hopes to eventually publish a memoir on his struggles with being Autistic and gay. The story he is telling tonight will surely end up in that book. This is his storytelling debut, taken from a piece he wrote on moments when music made his life better.

    What are you thankful for this year??
    This year, I'm thankful for getting a lot more writing done (and published) than in past years, co-leading one of the biggest projects of my life, and making it to my 30th birthday. I love community, I love music, and I love writing, and these 3 things helped me integrate different areas of my life that I love.
