Need a break from the toughest Chicago winter in decades? We’ve got just the remedy! Join us on Thursday, March 6th at The Charleston for an evening out among friends in support of music education.
Our fun-packed evening includes live music from our favorite bluegrass band Hayward from 8:00-10:00 PM (featuring IMW Founder and Executive Director Mike Simons and Board member Brian Black) followed by a set of vinyl classics from DJ Scoopy (IMW’s own Kevin Claxton). We’ll be joined by Celebrity Bartender Psalm One AKA Hologram Kizzie – fresh from the release of her new LP “Hug Life” and ready to serve up your favorites all night!
The Charleston has generously offered to donate 100% of proceeds from the evening to support IMW’s in-school, after-school, and summer music education programs, which will serve over 650 CPS, charter school, and park district students this year.
All these good times for the low, low price of absolutely nothing, so do yourself a favor and come on out!
