Random Acts 2

Dark Light

Random Acts 2 is a compilation released through Q101, a Chicago-based radio station. It featured fifteen live tracks from artists and bands that hail from Chicago.

Proceeds from the sale of this compilation went to Clara’s House, a charity that raises funds for homeless and battered women and children in the west Inglewood neighborhood of Chicago.

Liz Phair kicks off the compilation with “Fuck And Run,” which was recorded live during the KROQ Christmas Show in Los Angeles on December 10, 1994.

Liner Notes

Like the first CD, this project works on two levels. The first being that of selfless benevolence: “random acts of kindness,” as mentioned on “Random Acts.” Like before, all net proceeds from “Random Acts 2” go to Clara’s house. Clara’s house opened its doors in 1987 seeking to “meet people’s basic needs for jobs, food, housing, a healthy life, and decent education through projects and programs directed at advocacy, social services, empowerment, and education and self-awareness.”

The other aspect of “Random Acts” is the music. Without question, it would take a regular series of box sets to even begin to scratch the surface of Chicago artists. The bands here are among the finest, and most have contributed a live track that was recorded especially for this album. Live music is the reason there is a “Chicago scene.” On any given night, there are anywhere from 10-100 clubs featuring local artists on stage, playing their hearts out to the most loyal of fans.”
