Read about the series below. We’ll be bringing you the best in indie music all year.
I’m happy to formally introduce everyone to a new series we’ll be bringing you over the next year: Red Bull Sound Select. Fake Shore Drive has officially partnered with Red Bull to bring you the best in independent hip-hop in Chicago. Red Bull Sound Select will be impacting in five cities across the country (LA, NYC, Chicago, Austin & Nashville), with Fake Shore Drive picked to curate the hip-hop events in the City of Wind (more on the other Chicago curators later.) The goal? To push the indie music scene in our market. Sure there were a ton of the major label signings in the Chi in 2012, but there are plenty who still remain unsigned and remain true to their indie roots. And we’re here to bring them to you — live and direct.
Each show will feature a headliner (in this case: Freddie Gibbs), and three of the hottest unsigned (by a major label that is) acts in the city (For the first show: Sasha Go Hard, Tree and ShowYouSuck.) Oh and did we mention that each and every show will cost you $3? Yeah, that’s correct, you get to see this entire show for $3 if you buy your ticket now (or $5 if you buy @ door.)
