Weekend Passport: Bitter Jester Battle Of The Bands

Each week, global citizen Nari Safavi helps listeners plan their international weekend. Now in its 11th year, the Bitter Jester “Battle of the Bands” competition spotlights some of the best high-school aged musicians in the Chicago-area with concerts in Highland Park every Friday night through June. 

Caroline Baran is a 15-year-old, Polish-American singer whose band “Profusion” won last year’s battle. She joins us for an in-studio performance. Nicolas DeGrazia is the founder of the competition and he’ll give us a preview of some of the young talent featured in the event.
