JULY

Belleisle pic
Thurs, July 31st – Belleisle
Belleisle plays a particularly ponderous pop repertoire the readily relies on catchily-crafted chord changes, mind-meltingly meticulous melodies and a handful of happy, haunting harmonies.

“Fans of laid back and uber-melodic indie rock should check out locals Belleisle. Their ever-changing and evolving lineup is at least a sextet, but can, at time, reach ten members as they use a variety of instruments to deliver sweet and soft tunage that aims to sweep the listener off into somewhere dreamy.”
-Loud Loop Press, Weekly Diversions, 8/5/13

Sun, Aug 10th - Classical Revolution
Classical Revolution Chicago brings chamber music out of the concert hall and into the neighborhoods of Chicago! They perform in bars, art galleries, cafés, and other non-traditional places. The mission is to bring chamber music performed by talented, local artists directly to the people by performing in highly-accessible, frequented venues across our community. They believe in dismantling the fourth wall between classical music performers and their audience. Everyone can enjoy the music that we love and should experience the wonderful, expansive world of classical music in a way that is comfortable. They provide an outlet where people can enjoy a drink, engage with the musicians, and clap a lot!

Johnny Azari
Mon, Aug 25th – Johnny Azari with Prichard Harter

Johnny Azari was born in Shiraz, a city known for wine, poetry, opium, and revolution. At only a year old, he was relocated to a city known as New York; noted for grit, madness, money, and proliferation. These things had no influence on him whatsoever.
Azari has scored, Illusions & Mirrors, starring Natalie Portman; shared the stage with, The New York Dolls, Kiss, Nouvelle Vague, Sussan Deyhim; collaborated with Shirin Neshat, Mohsen Namjoo, and David Kahn. A decade of work has seen him release 3 LPS and 6 EP’s, score a feature film, co-write a play for Performa, tour EU and USA, and create a handful of videos for youtube, two of which (occupation blues | freedom glory) enjoyed viral success, all of which has earned him attention from The New York Times, CNN, Huffington Post, Brooklyn Vegan, The New York Observer, and more.
In 2011 he quit his band, citing differences of integrity, and left 10 years of work and his home town, New York City, behind. He moved to the Adirondack mountains where he built Accelerated Entropy Studios. There, he spent a year in solitude and reflection, recording his first solo LP, The Tropic of Entropy. Now, two LP’s and three years later, he lives on the road touring the United States relentlessly.
