For close to a year and a half DJ Roma Soul and Black Bear Combo have played to a packed house downstairs at Subterranean on the third Friday of the month in Chicago. This has grown to be one of the more successful nights I’ve seen featuring an instrumental act since I moved to Chicago nearly 7 years ago. The crowd demands high energy. I look forward to it every month and I hope that you will join us this Friday February 17th 2012. More about the night in the Chicago Tribune.
Balkan Beat Box is a high energy live electronic Balkan band. There will be a raffle for two tickets to the show this Friday July 18th during DJ Roma Soul’s Balkan Invasion of Wicker park at Subterrainian. The performance at Empty Bottle in 2007 was pretty crazy so I would expect that Lincoln Hall will be a good party. If you missed them at Lollapalooza last summer this is a good opportunity to see the band in a more intimate setting. Check out blackbearcombo.com for more information about the Chicago brass band.
