FSD has partnered with Red Bull for a new series that will shed some light on the best independent hip hop in Chicago. Each show will have a headliner and three unsigned acts that are making the most noise in the city. The headliner for the first show going down at Bottom Lounge on February 7th will be Freddie Gibbs and the three unsigned acts will be ShowYouSuck, Tree and Sasha Go Hard. Tickets are only $3 (!!!) and $5 at the door. Tickets can be purchased here. The stakes are also high for the first Chicago show. We’ll let Andrew from FSD let you know what is up for grabs after the jump.
“Oh, and did I mention that the ‘stakes is high’ for our first Chicago date? To kick off Sound Select in Chicago, one of the artists, and some of their biggest fans, will win an all expense paid trip to perform at the Red Bull Sound Select and Fake Shore Drive show in Austin, TX on Thursday, March 14.
The winner will be flown down to Dallas, where they’ll perform with the winners from the other markets, and then they’ll hop on a tour bus bound for Austin, TX where they’ll be put up in the Red Bull compound (more details on that coming soon as well.) So Sasha, Show or Tree, will be headed down to Austin, TX courtesy of Sound Select. This isn’t some corny battle of the bands type of thing either, it’s for the fans. The act with the most loyal fans and biggest supporters will vote for three weeks to help their favorite artist win. And their biggest fans will also win a trip down. So yeah, this is going to be a very exciting event.”-Andrew Barber, FSD
This is definitely a dope opportunity for any of the three artists. Stay tuned for details on how to help any of those three artists perform in Austin on the Red Bull Sound Select stage.
