Comfort Music Series in Chicago

Source: Comfort Music.

For a 3rd year running, International Anthem is taking the curatorial reins of historic Comfort Station – the gingerbread-house-looking, reclaimed-trolley-station-turned-art-gallery in the heart of Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood – to present 1 month of Comfort Music – i.e. casual evening improvisations by some of our city’s finest musicians.

For this year’s outings we’re collaborating with dear friend of the label King Hippo – on not only the curation and presentation, but also on a special version of his Fresh Roasted party at The Whistler to cap off this series of performances (more on that below).

Comfort Station is located at 2579 N Milwaukee Ave, across from Logan Square monument, in Chicago IL. Comfort Music commences at 730pm every Thursday evening. Here’s who we’ve got lined up:
