I guess you could say we it’s been a few years since we’ve hosted a block party akin to those summoned thousands to Chicago’s tucked away industrial corridor. After last year’s block party, our 20th anniversary celebration, took the anomalous 1-day approach we are back to a jam-packed, weekend long block party this coming September. Along with this year’s 21st anniversary ironically marking our arrival at the legal drinking age, it is also represents the 60th anniversary of the Sputnik launch (and the 60th birthday celebration for of a lot of our musical friends) and the 20th anniversary of Electrical Audio. So we figured we’d get back to our big party ways. Shout out to Timeout and Chicagoist for the previews.
This year’s block party is scheduled as follows:
Sat. 9/23/17 – http://ticketf.ly/2uqITOl
60th Birthday Party for Sputnik!
Eleventh Dream Day
Jon Langford & Skull Orchard
75 Dollar Bill
