Happy New Year everyone! Now that 2015 is a distant memory, it’s time to live it up and bring in 2016 the right way: with a rager of course! We’re two weeks away from the highly anticipated event, …And God Said It Was Good; a party that is also combined with a collective artist showcase.
The brains behind the operation is none other than Chicago OG music engineer Headache, whose been in the game 11 years strong engineering for some of your favorite artists. For the past four years Headache has been working out of the renown Classick Studios, and now he’s expanding his skill-set by adding artist management under his belt. What started out as a drunk idea, well more like post-blackout idea, is now coming to life January 22nd at The Promontory.
“I believe this to be the first intertwined artist performance, where all of the acts that are performing, all know each other, they respect each other, and they all work together. So all of the music that you will hear is original and connected, so everyone’s set is gonna go into the next set because they all have songs together. It’s gonna be dope. It’s a party too for my artist KB and my assistant engineer Chris Payne, and a couple of other people I know that have birthdays around then so I’m like, hey, let’s have fun at the same time and do this show.”
“I’m doing what I feel is best for the city, what it’s been missing. I’ve been in the game for a while as an artist, engineer, manager, and I’ve seen countless shows that end up as bad looks for everyone just because there’s like 200 rappers with 30 min sets trying to sell tickets just to do the promoter’s job. This will be the beginning of change. I’m looking out for the artists’ best interest and hopefully this show will turn into something bigger.”
Come out and support Chicago artists! Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased here. Doors open at 8pm. Don’t snooze.
