LOGAN SQUARE — This winter, like every winter, the Chicago tradition of claiming dibs has inspired a tired discussion about whether claiming shoveled-out parking spaces is a right or the end of civilization.
Of course, we all hope we've suffered through our last dibs-qualifying snow this winter.
But in the unfortunate event that is not the case, Logan Square folkie Andrew Francis, who is best known for his protest songs "Mr. Mayor Says," "Talkin' CTA Blues" and "Talkin' Red Light Blues," has written a gospel song aimed at easing your winter parking anxieties.
"We all know about the time-honored tradition of dibs. We all know someone who takes dibs regularly. And we all know someone who regularly talks about how dibs are the downfall of modern, industrial society," Francis says on his website, Music Vomit. "So it’s a song about dibs."
