POD Photos: Aminé at the Metro (#30DaysInChicago)

posted by Oscar November 24, 2017

Our latest venture into the world of Red Bull Sound Select’s  concert series, we headed back to the Metro for Day 18, featuring Aminé, Pell, and A2. In the building along with me was my very dope POD comrade, Ellie, who was helping capture the vibes that night.

The night was ripe for headliner Aminé to demonstrate why he’s widely considered one of the best new names in the game, and the Portland man delivered. The Good For You cover art inspired a photo op  in the balcony, with fans able to sit on a blue toilet as an all-yellow background completed the scene.

Aminé showed off his charm right from the start, which included a mashup cover of TLC’s “No Scrubs” and Kanye West’s “Gold Digger” at the beginning of his set. For banter in between songs, he asked people to raise their hands and use their fingers to show the number of times they’ve pronounced his name wrong only to laugh at what he saw in the crowd.

Red Bull Sound Select’s  keeps on rolling in our city, and we were present for the show that closed out the first week of the month-long concert series.

We tapped a dope up-and-coming photographer in Mikayla Delson, who made sure to capture the vibes and magic that exuded from the stage that night at the Metro. The all-female lineup consisted of performances from Charlotte Day Wilson, Bailey Wiley, and the main act Syd. The lead singer of The Internet was in town making a solo appearance, showcasing the sounds from her debut album Fin.

Mick Jenkins collaborates with Fat Tiger Workshop for “A Quest for Love Tour” Tee’s.

posted by JuicyJackie October 5, 2016



Chicago is home and of course to us Chicagoans… The best city on earth. We’re a blog that strongly believes in it’s Chicago talent. With the current waves that Chicago is causing it’s amazing to see the city support each other. It’s love, it’s home grown and it’s real. Mick Jenkins & Fat Tiger came together to collab on a exclusive tour tee. The tee is only available on Mick Jenkin’s Red Bull Sound Select “A Quest For Love Tour with Smino” tour dates. The first 100 fans through the door at each stop will be gifted one of the four color ways: Grey, Black, Army Green and Khahi.


JoeFreshGoods on the collab:

“Mick has been a supporter of the shop and we’ve developed a natural friendship where now he’s family. When it came to his tour with Red Bull Sound Select and being able to collaborate it was very organic and natural. In terms of the design we wanted to keep in simple, clean and classic. We were inspired by the tour artwork, pulling soft colors from the background and using those neutral tones to come up with the four different color ways. We liked the bow and arrow and how it ties into the theme of love”

Catch Mick & Smino!


The tour is running until the 21st of October, so make sure you stop by the remaining tour stops.

also make your rsvp here to only pay $3 @ the show!
