Event: Silent Party Music To Play First Headline Show on August 3

posted by Oscar July 24, 2017

We’re very happy to share the news with y’all that our good friends of Silent Party Music, Chicago’s crew of live musicians that play for some (a lot, actually) of your favorite artists, will be putting on their own showcase next month, and it will be one you won’t want to miss. If you’re a fan of Jamila Woods, Noname, Smino, LEGIT, Saba, Omen, Alex Wiley, and Eryn Allen Kane, and you’ve seen them live in the last couple years, then you’ve seen and enjoyed the band that is Silent Party Music.

The showcase is a bit secretive right now as the band doesn’t want to ruin the dope things they’ve got cooking up for this, but I can assure you that when they say “very special guests” that they seriously mean it. What we can confirm is that Elton Aura, Luke Titus, and Isaiah G will help open up the show, while DJ Dam Dam and DJ MightDoSumn will be providing the vibes.

It all kicks off at 8pm on August 3 at Emporium in Wicker Park…. Oh yeah, and it’s FREE!

Seriously, this is going to be beyond dope. Be there.
