We want to thank Emily Purpura for the charming mention of ESS on her blog We are glad that you enjoyed the Tim Kaiser performance, and we hope that you return soon! Here is an excerpt from her post...

"ESS is tucked away on the Northside of Chicago. Unless you know someone special, you probably wouldn’t know its there. Their space contains a gallery, a couple studios and a small performance space. Oh and the garden!

The staff at ESS are very welcoming and friendly. They are open to discussing what they do and don’t assume that you are 'in the know.' Inside ESS is cozy and yet there are open spaces, nooks and crannies to explore if you’re feeling overwhelmed..."
