We strive to provide an outlet and platform for artists involved in various genres, backgrounds, and experiences throughout Chicago to further unite those interested in highly creative and demanding music and performance work. Our concert reviews, interviews, and essays serve to foster a healthy and constructive critique for community members to regularly engage with and aid artists in their personal growth, as well as reach out to a larger community of audiences.
