DCASE Homepage > Off the Record: A Listening Party
To borrow from Mark Twain, the news of the demise of vinyl is premature.
The Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE). DCASE, along with the Elastic Arts Foundation and saki, is launching a free new monthly series that features vinyl recordings, Off the Record: A Listening Party.
Off the Record gives music fans the opportunity to hear a new record, often in advance of its release. Each party features the new recording as well as members of the band performing the songs live. Other interactive elements that may be included are a Q&A with the artists, a live podcast taping, a group discussion, or a DJ set, among other possibilities.
Off the Record will happen twice monthly: one on Chicago’s north side and one on the south side. The north side parties will take place at saki, 3716 W. Fullerton Ave. in Chicago.
All parties are FREE admission.
