the World Underground
HotHouse is thrilled to announce the launch of an intriguing new monthly music series: the World Underground.
the World Underground joins up-and-coming regional artists with underground legends who established many of the cultural scenes we enjoy today. Countries and cultures will unite in a globally-influenced, locally-inspired musical celebration!
the World Underground occurs on the last Saturday of every month at Wicker Park Art Center in Chicago. Each monthly celebration features a different fusion of international audio that can only be found in multicultural city like Chicago. Local restaurants will cater authentic cuisine from each of the regions celebrated.
Wicker Park Art Center is an architectural gem in the heart of Wicker Park, Chicago. The beautiful multi-level facility is a converted Romanesque-style church built shortly after the Chicago fire in 1890. The center is currently run by the Near NorthWest Arts Council, http://www.nnwac.org, a local arts institution that has long provided housing for artists and organizations throughout Chicago.
the World Underground will celebrate Chicago’s cultural roots and offer a glimpse of artists on the forefront of global culture. So if you are globally-inclined…come hang out, socialize, and get inspired!
