James Pobiega aka Little Howlin Wolf was an iconic figure in Chicago, playing sax and blues on the streets of the Windy City for decades until he moved to Baltimore. Now he’s a fixture here, and he’s quickly become one of the many unforgettable characters that makes this city so amazing.

His Twitter feed will give you a glimpse of the amazing stuff he says all the time, and if you ever meet him, he’ll tell you how he invented street theater or all the movies he’s been in. Also, check out his album from a few years ago, Brave Nu World.
