“Hi friends, there are times in life when our bodies send us messages that we can’t ignore & this is one of those times. Fortunately for me, it is nothing life-threatening. I need a routine procedure, which is so simple it can be performed by a robot. R2D2 is busy saving the universe, but I understand there is another highly qualified robotic surgeon who works out of Cedars-Sinai Hospital here in Los Angeles. My doctor says I will be good as new. I am deeply disappointed that I have to ask the greatest fans in rock ’n roll to change their plans. All I can do is ask for your understanding and I truly appreciate your support. Much love, kc”

“Celebrate local, homegrown talent, it is as good here as it is anywhere,” Condron boasts at his frequent Chicagoland shows. Dubbed “one of the Chicago’s hardest-working gems,” by New City Magazine, Condron has played with actor Viggo Mortensen,
musicians Joseph Arthur, Paul Brady, Mickey Harte, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Duncan Shiek, Adrian Belew, and Chicago’s best slam poets, including Marc Smith and Marty McConnell. He has recently played at the Green Mill in Chicago and the National Concert Hall in Dublin.

Condron’s performances are chronicled by the work of Wilco photographer Zoran Orlic and he is sponsored by Hanson Guitars in Chicago. Come celebrate the good-looking maestro with the hat, who shimmy’s his sidestep, acoustic in hand, fronting his latest folky American backing band The Old Gang Orchestra for his sixth record release, “Dead Tree” at the beautiful Rialto Theater on February 16.
