Elastic Arts and Comfort Station partner up in October!
MUSIC STARTS AT 7:30. NO ALCOHOL. $5 SUGGESTED DONATION.
In an effort to co-promote the complimentary programming offered at two pinnacles of the Logan Square/Avondale arts scene, Elastic Arts andComfort Station are partnering up for the month of October to co-promote their two respective Thursday-night music series. For that month, Comfort Music will be curated by Elastic Arts Improvised Music Series coordinator Dave Rempis, and will feature artists playing at Elastic Arts later that evening in alternative and generally more intimate settings. Better still, one donation will gain entry to both concerts.
With this effort, the two organizations hope to achieve a joint affirmation of a partnership that has only been informal to date, in which many of the same audience members attend both events, and enjoy a leisurely stroll a short distance up Milwaukee Avenue between the two events. Additionally, they hope that this month-long collaboration will lead to future collaborations between these two great neighborhood organizations.
