From time to time flowsfordays will be scouring the internet for upcoming concerts that you just can’t miss. This way, instead of finding concert footage on YouTube and Twitter and realizing you missed a show from one of your favorite artists, you can be in the know ahead of time. We will mostly be focusing on Chicago (as it is my hometown) but will occasionally look at other states.
Ghostface Killah, Odd Couple + special guests (October 20th)
Ghostface Killah, (AHHHH!!!) Odd Couple, and some special guests will be hitting the metro on Thursday October 20th on 3730 N. Clark Street. Its a 18+ affair. If you live in Chicago and go to hip hop events often, you know they always kill it with the special guests, so be ready.
You can purchase tickets here for $22-$27.
Lil Uzi Vert (October 31st)
My man Lil Uzi Vert is hitting The Portage Theater (4050 N. Milwaukee Ave.) on October 31st. Doors open at 7PM. This concert is for ALL AGES, which is a celebration in itself. Hopefully he’ll play some tunes from his latest project The Perfect Luv Tape.
Purchase tickets here. General admission is $35 plus the $5 fee (BOOOO!) If you want early admission, front row, etc, hit the link to see the prices.
Fake Shore Drive Presents (with Joey Purp, WARHOL.SS, DJ Oreo, SOMEGUYNAMEDTY + special guests) (November 11th)
Let me just preface this. This concert is in LA, but I have to show love for the originator of Chicago hip hop blogging. Also, every artist on the bill is from Chicago.
‘Fake Shore Drive Presents’ concerts are always lit. ALWAYS. On Friday, November 11th another one will be coming to the Mayan Theater in LA. Once again Andrew didn’t skimp on the great Chicago performers. If you attend you’ll hear songs from Jeremih, Joey Purp, and WARHOL.SS. DJ Oreo and SOMEGUYNAMEDTY will be on the boards. Some special guests will also be attending. As I said above, Chicago based concerts always surprise with the mention of unknown performers.
This show is in collaboration with Red Bull Sound Select and tickets will sell out fast. Grab yours here for only $15 (with RSVP.)
Pavy – Album Release Party (October 22nd)
Pavy has been featured on our Dissection Series, so it was only right to let our readers know that he has an upcoming release party for his new project: Me, By Jonathan McCoy. If you are a regular visitor to the site you know he just dropped his video to Drift a few days ago.
There is no doubt the album will be dope. Find out for yourself on Saturday, October 22nd from 6-9pm at the Underground Wonder Bar (710 N. Clark Street.) DJ Playamaka will be providing the sounds. Entry is free and I hear from Pavy there will be drinks. You might even see me there.
If I missed any be sure to hit me up on Twitter @flowsfordays_ so I can add it to the post.
