Check it: A bunch of you sent us some pictures of the last few weekends, which we love (That can be done at firstname.lastname@example.org). So, check out pictures of the Grace Weber Band, MODA Fashion Show and BBU Afterparty, and this weekend’s Fresh Cut Collective and Sidewalk Chalk show. Some of these are professional grade because, well, they’re done by professionals. Check out Marissa J Murdy’s photography page, who shot the Grace Weber photos, and MANDO Photography’s Facebook page, whose Armando Vega shot the MODA Fashion show shots. They put my ten-year-old basic digital camera pics to shame. More after the jump. Keep snapping those pics people!
Someday, Kids These Days will out-grow their name, and it seems that day is quickly approaching. The Chicago natives possess talent and maturity well beyond their years, a group of six men and one woman all under the age of 20. How many 20-year-olds do you know that have shared the stage with Snoop Dogg, played to an endless sea of fans at Lollapalooza, and recorded an album with Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy producing?
KTD is diverse in every way, blending funk, soul, hip-hop, acoustic rock, and rap to create something truly original. There’s something for everyone, which is why they regularly sell out shows in Chicago and have played with a vast array of popular artists. They attract extremely energetic crowds with their own energy, giving the feeling that each concert is a party. Believe me, this Friday’s show will be a party – and a free one at that!
The action starts at 9 p.m. when Fresh Cut Collective takes the stage, a Milwaukee band that won a WAMI award this year for the best Hip-Hop/Rap act in the state of Wisconsin. That’s no small feat, my friends. They’re an excellent complement to the energy and uniqueness of Kids These Days.
