Carnage The Executioner has earned his stripes over the last 10 years building an undeniable resumé with frequent performances in Europe and numerous US tours with Atmosphere and Eyedea & Abilities. Carnage The Executioner delivers an engaging live show that has enabled him to steal the hearts of countless rap fans and otherwise wherever he touches ground. As an experienced beat boxer, he instructs others on how to use the body as an instrument. Referring to Carnage The Executioner’s beat boxing abilities, a writer from Minneapolis Star Tribune said, “his mouth might be the best drummer in town” in 2011. Carnage The Executioner comes fully armed for live shows: two microphones, a pedal board housing a Boss RC-20 Loop Station, a Digitech Vocal Effects Processor, MXR Bass Octave & Boss DS-1 Distortion pedals. He can also be seen with a small case of percussion instruments – all utilized as enhancements to his boundless energy and a commanding stage presence. Carnage constructs complex multi-layered soundscapes from the ground up with breath-taking accuracy through beat boxing. He then proceeds to rap, harmonize and vocal-scratch over his backdrops with intensity and showmanship that is difficult to put into words…So it must be witnessed first-hand!

Illogic is an American rapper and hip-hop artist. He has released thre full length albums and two EPs. He is with Weightless Recordings. He has collaborated with a variety of artists, particularly Blueprint of Soul Position (with Whome he is part of the group Greenhouse) , but also including Aesop Rock, Davu, Ant of Atmosphere, along with other Mid-West MCs.

Sun, Nov 9th – 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!
