On Thursday, March 1st, Fun House Entertainment teamed up with Clark St. Collective and Save The World to bring us a night full of music and art. Sandwiched between a swanky wine bar and hole in the wall pizza joint in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, Clark St. Collective has unique ever changing art installations and is the perfect space for local artists and musicians to be creative together.
The night started off with local indie alternative band The Fundamental KiNk. As soon as they started playing, the room filled with energy while fans began singing along and others happily started dancing. Local mural artists Jeremy Lombardo and Perfect Grill also crafted unique black light mural throughout the event space.
Next up was the alternative electronic sounds of Fully Realized. His Reflections EP is filled with songs that are smooth and hip for easy listening and – if you’re anything like me – easy to dance along to. KBANZ is a man of many talents. He’s a producer, DJ, photographer, videographer, writer, graphic designer, and freelance brand consultant – Wow! What a mouthful. He’s also got a new song entitled “Diversey” which is out now.
The night continued on with the musical stylings of power pop duo Vesper, back to back sets from .AU. and Cat Like Thief, and Capital Soirée who played their new single “Waves of Change.” Chicago native soul/pop singing sensation Brandon James treated us to some tunes. Brandon also recently released a music video for his new song “Love Rising.” Rylan Dream and special guest Shi La Rosa had the whole room packed wall to wall dancing and vibing along. Closing out the eventful evening with back-to-back sets were Shh and Valentine Music with future bass, heavy bass music, funk, R&B and electronic pop sounds.
The night was long but packed full of talent. But don’t take my word for it. Check out the gallery below!
