Photos : Marnie Stern's Guitar Clinic in a small Latin American restaurant in Chicago.
Before her sold out show opening for the Flaming Lips at the Aragon, Marnie Stern hosted a guitar clinic at a small Latin American restaurant named Pancho's. Marnie brought her full band with her, and they played a few songs, like "Crippled Jazzer", before demonstrating each.
She worked one on one with everyone more than once, guiding people and pointing out her form. Someone brought in some paintings he did of her. She signed people's guitars, and talked with the lucky few who attended.
The whole thing ended up lasting over 2 hours. A unique event, that judging by the shit-eating grins on the people faces below, was really fun for everyone involved.
