Biggest Mouth @ Columbia College of Chicago

Big MouthFrench Review – I attended Big Mouth, a monthly event showcasing various genres of musical talent. Students of Columbia College are given the opportunity to present their self in a supportive environment (which could also be a crutch. Perhaps too supportive at times). There were many audio problems throughout the night, and there was a 20-minute window of technical difficulty (every microphone went mute). Overall the event seemed ill planned, and unorganised. Now this was my first time attending and it just seems like the event was very unconventional, but on a positive note there was  great diversity in the acts (Jazz, Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop).

Many of the performers were drowned out by the music, but managed to keep the crowd entertained.

I would definitely have liked to see different bands. It seems as though the same band played for almost every act that required live instrumentation. I know that these students have talent, I just think they should definitely utilise their educational opportunities to improve their performance abilities.
