Edamame LIVE BAND [Debut]
Show: 9PM | Tickets: FREE | Ages: 21+ w/ govt issued ID
:: Details ::
Producers and beatsmiths of Milwaukee, it’s time for you to step up and see who will win Milwaukee’s new premier beat battle, Big Beat MKE. One lucky producer will be taking home a huge prize pack, as well as the honor of being dubbed the winner of the inaugural Big Beat MKE Tournament.
If you are familiar with the format of the former Miltown Beatdown, the battle format will be very much in the same style: two producers will go head to head for three one minute rounds, alternating beats for the judges and the crowd to hear. If the crowd demands it, one optional overtime round will be contested. Judges will pick the winner based on style, overall sound quality, and crowd reaction.
Each event will consist of two beat battles and performances from two local Milwaukee artists. The bracket will consist of 16 producers from the Milwaukee area, selected by a panel of local judges and tastemakers beforehand.

Chicago Stock Exchange Trading Room: $10 students / $15 members /$25 nonmembers
Choose between two performances on April 18:
Tuesday, April 17 at 7:00

Join Kid Koala's turntable orchestra with this interactive live performance. Kid Koala presents an innovative collection of dreamy, atmospheric tracks composed especially for this event. In this latest live experience, audience members are seated at stations equipped with a turntable, effects box, and a small crate of color-coded vinyl records. Through subtle colored lighting changes, the audience is cued to play along. An integral part of the show, the audience accompanies Kid Koala to create an “ambient vinyl orchestra,” melding individual strains into a fluid body of sound. The idea is to have 60 harmonized turntables create a unique, uplifting, dynamic evening of light and music.
Support for Live Arts programming is provided by the Woman’s Board of the Art Institute of Chicago.

An intense touring schedule and focused studio time have helped TAUK tap into
their singular chemistry to elevate and expand their all-instrumental blend of funk,
hip-hop, progressive rock, and jazz. Renowned for both their refined musicality
and unbridled creativity, the Oyster Bay, New York-bred rock-fusion four-piece
(guitarist Matt Jalbert, bassist Charlie Dolan, keyboardist Alric “A.C.” Carter, and
drummer Isaac Teel) push into new sonic terrain and build entire worlds within
each richly textured soundscape.
The band has returned to the studio to craft a follow up to 2016’s Sir Nebula
which found TAUK introducing a cosmically inspired element to their music. “The
album ended up taking on a more ambient kind of vibe than anything we’ve done
before—there’s a spaciness in the songs that lets you get lost in the sound,” says
Dolan. And while the album is endlessly hypnotic, TAUK also deliver the dynamic
tension-and- release jams that have helped earn them a devoted following while
drawing critical acclaim (the Washington Post, for one, praised TAUK for
“creating a hard-charging, often melodic fusion that—thanks to a penchant for
improv—offers limitless possibilities”).
As with their past releases, TAUK is creating the follow up to Sir Nebula in
collaboration with Grammy Award-winning producer/mixer/engineer Robert
Carranza (The Mars Volta, Ozomatli, Jack Johnson, Taj Mahal). The band has
been holed up in an abandoned house, turned studio on Long Island, NY a
region which traces back to childhood, when longtime friends Dolan, Jalbert, and
Carter formed their first band in seventh grade and held practice in their school
basement. After playing together in various projects over the years, the trio
brought Teel into the fold in 2012, cementing the final lineup. “We gelled pretty
quickly as friends and as musicians, and now there’s a connection onstage that’s
unspoken,” notes Teel. “You just feel it from the energy within the band and from
the response coming from the crowd—all these people in the same exact
Since their formation, TAUK have shared stages with an impressive list of bands
(including Widespread Panic, Umphrey’s McGee, Lettuce, and Tim Reynolds &
TR3), in addition to appearing at festivals like Electric Forest, Bonnaroo, and The
Allman Brothers’ Peach Music Festival. That rigorous touring schedule has gone
a long way in strengthening their chemistry, according to Carter. “We’re doing
over 100 shows a year and we pretty much live with each other, so there’s a
healthy respect and trust and love happening there,” he says. “We all have a
common goal and an understanding that this is something we’re compelled to do,
and that’s definitely brought us close together.” It’s also helped TAUK develop a
reputation as a masterful live act: “TAUK is unstoppable,” raved Live for Live
Music. “If you haven’t see them, dear God, go.”
EGI (Ethereal Groove, Inc.) is an experimental funk group with a young and energetic spirit and feel. EGI pushes the limits of improvisation, writing and energy rich shows. The band displays great versatility with rotating multi instrumentalists and a progressive appreciation for many genres.
Experimentation is EGI's main forte, the band has always had a very level headed feel to writing which allows everyone to incorporate their ideas without hesitation. Young and driven, EGI is breaking musical ground with every turn.

3 AM Thoughts Production and Women of The Now Host | Take Talks - Content Creation + Production at Stage 18
Start: 6:30PM | Tickets: $10 | Ages: ALL
Take Talks is a panel interview and networking series in Chicago that's goal is to encourage you to take your career back into your own hands and discover actionable steps you can use in your film career. We interview and learn from successful filmmakers in Chicago who have been creating your favorite films, web series, and shorts. This series is a wonderful opportunity for networking in a relaxed environment and meeting other like-minded individuals.
Join us for an in-depth discussion on Content Creation and Production!
You have an idea you're excited about, but now what? How do you actually go about creating it? We're going into a deep dive on how to take a film or web series from idea to completed project.
How many people do you need on your crew? What does each crew member do? What do you do about budget (or NO budget)? We'll be working with three Chicago filmmaking experts to unlock the mystery behind creating your own content so that you can leave this event with actionable next steps for your project. Featuring a guided panel discussion, an open forum Q+A where you can ask whatever questions you have, and a no pressure networking environment where you can meet like-minded people who are also looking to create independent content in Chicago.
This month's Take Talks panelists:
Ricardo Gamboa (Creator of web series "Brujos")
Michael Glover Smith (Writer and Director of "Mercury in Retrograde" and upcoming feature "Rendezvous in Chicago")
Grace Hahn (Producer of feature film "Princess Cyd")
The art and music events that we share at Alulu every month are focused on inclusion, empowerment, and communal joy. Discourses on equality and community only get us so far if we're not also engaging in the transformative power of communal celebration together in a regular way, at regular intervals of our being. We need rituals (parties) to anchor and materialize our collective affections and affinities!
The next monthly art and music show at Alulu will be a special kind of collective acknowledgment. We're happy to be welcoming to the stage the 4th installment of Queendom Come!! A Celebration of Women!!! We'll have the amazing R&B Songstress Lauren Eylise (from Cincinnati!) Awesome sounds of pop synth duo Pixel Grip, upbeat grooves from The Tomblands, and the one and only FURY HIP HOP! As always we'll have original artwork from 6 amazing local artists and a new craft beer making its debut on tap. Walter Santiago is co-curating this month, so come take a look at his collection! Get there before 10 pm when the kitchen closes for awesome food! SEE YOU THERE!! Stick around after the show for an open mic hosted by Gabe Sullivan until the bar closes!!

In the beginning, we invited you to awaken within the dream and you stirred from your slumber to help create a movement of transformation. You were encouraged and guided by our Seven Totems on a journey of inner discovery. You embraced your consciousness and interconnectedness with all universal energies. Together, we fortified our collective power and rediscovered ancient wisdom that has sustained humanity for eons. We found ourselves at a Crossroads: bring this wisdom into our present reality and move forward with effective change or succumb to a lesser, futile path. And finally, reaching the end of these transformational milestones, we arrived at a place of high vibrational resonance, an Eudaimonia, where joy, hope and the endless capacity for love flourish.
Six years of personal and collective transformation. Was it all a “waking dream” in a lucid landscape?
No, it wasn’t.
A new day is upon us. A new story is welling in our hearts. We are awakening, not just to our infinite potential as individual beings, not just to our collective power when we reinhabit the village, but to our vast possitentialities as a species, interconnected with all of life. The rising sun illuminates where we’ve been and shines light on the path before us. We see this next rite of passage as a new quest toward a unified humanity, and we joyfully say YES, and Thank You!
:: The Festival ::
Lucidity is an open-source transformational arts and music festival. We call it open-source because we co-create this festival experience with YOU! We invite you to come play with us, get involved with one of our seven themed villages, call together your star family, bring art, lead a workshop, spark a spontaneous flash mob, embody a character from your dreams, be silly and wild and free!
When we become lucid in our dreams, we realize ourselves as infinite potential, we let go of fear, and we are free to create that which we want to see in the world. Bring those visions, those possibilities, and that delicious conscious energy with you to Lucidity and wake up in the dream.
Year 7: Rising Dawn
As one great cycle comes to a close, a new beginning is birthed. In the fateful moment just before the Ouroboros cosmic serpent chomps down on his own tail, there is a liminal moment, a long and silent pause, an opportunity to spiral into a higher lucid octave of consciousness, rather than mindlessly repeating old stories and patterns. We stand on such a precipice, and looking out upon the horizon, with gratitude for the integration of the learnings from a long and challenging quest fulfilled, we see a familiar sunrise. A new day is upon us. A new story is welling in our hearts. It’s as though we’ve been here before, but that’s impossible...
Be sure to check out our website - 2018.lucidityfestival.com - for more information soon, especially the FAQ / Event Details Page. Applications to participate more fully will be open mid to late November. And just so we're clear - No refunds, all sales final. Tickets can be transferred in Eventbrite.

Shanti Planti | Addictech.com | Re:Evolution
Through complex percussions and growling rhythms, BogTroTTeR’s diverse collage of original compositions challenges the scope of modern day psychedelic bass music. His sound pushes the limits through his own unique mixture of glitch-hop, breakbeats, and psy-bass with a dark, swampy twist. Murky bass lines and terrestrial synthesizers are just a few things contributing to the lustrous sound field amalgamated by BogTroTTeR.
BogTroTTeR has seven releases creating complex terrestrial soundscapes on legendary Shanti Planti, Merkaba, and Addictech Records.

DRRTYWULVZ (Austin, TX)
Levi Witt, the auditory wizard behind the impressively crisp production, currently resides in Austin where he continues inspiring dancefloors everywhere. Others have certainly noticed, and large festivals such as Symbiosis, Enchanted Forest and Burning Man have brought DRRTYWULVZ to their stages as he has released several albums, including his most recent creation, “Ah Yes”.
The pleasantly alluring compositions of DRRTYWULVZ can be closely compared to the glitch and psydub of Tipper or Kalya Scintilla, yet his unique approach to euphoric dub styles is nothing short from extraordinary. Open your mind and prepare to howl at the moon, for the energetic melodies and innovative beat patterns of DRRTYWULVZ will blow you away.

Hullabalo0 (Reno, NV)
"I got into electronic music at the age of 14, compiling loops I found in Garage Band. Then was able to hook up my keyboard and start recording my own compositions and fell in love with the electronic music world. I then started to produce music with FLstudio making electronic instrumentals and drum & bass.
As my skills evolved I was able to start producing bedroom psytrance with big influences of Infected Mushroom and Astrix. When I moved to Argentina at 16 I continued my passion with my set of headphones for the next 2 years producing many tracks and even "albums" that I later organized. Always showing friends and family for feedback. The scene at the time was very big on Minimal-techno and slowly was able to appreciate it. There was a skatepark that I escaped to that converted into a very shanty club after the day. There I started to DJ and as well as produce (at home) more and more minimal techno with always my own spin for complex rhythms and textures.
I now reside in Reno after returning from 4 years in Argentina and graduating from a Music & Art highschool named Centro Polivalente de Arte. I continue my production with the dream of once getting discovered for my talents in Piano and Music Production."

SO, WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
Every other month, we handpick artists to create one of a kind pieces either paying tribute to legendary artists in the entertainment industry or that tie into a particular theme. We wanted to pull everyone out of the winterwoes and party Spring Break Style.
This Art Beat will be held on Friday, March 30th from 7:00pm-midnight. The event is focused on reliving Spring Break, highlighting what it means to us, and getting everyone ready for the Season change!
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL!
We will have LIVE performances, special SURPRISES, Hookah Lounge, and opportunities for people to not only view the artists at work, BUT be a part of creating art on their own. There will be an Arts & Crafts Creation Station, Canvas Painting, and painting of a Community Art Wall for all those who love to be hands on.
All in a SOCIAL PARTY ENVIRONMENT. Interesting right?
Art Beat was made to create a platform for artist to share their voices, visions and ideas with the world. By implementing "The Rising Stars" aspect into Artbeat, we not only spotlight the artist visual creations but we allow them to discuss their experiences on a panel at Art Beat Chicago. These artist completely expose the prize possessions that they hold dear to their hearts to everyone who listens, feels and relates to them at the Art Beat Social Art Party.

Enter The Upside Down as Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein play their soundtrack to cult TV hit Stranger Things live.
Serving up a hearty slice of 80s nostalgia, Stranger Things became the runaway TV hit of 2016, inviting viewers into the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana. Dixon and Stein's soundtrack – heavily indebted to the work of Jean-Michel Jarre and John Carpenter – is inseparable from the adventures of Eleven and the gang, with the feelings of childhood camaraderie and unsettling eeriness amplified by the synth-laden score. For tonight’s show the duo will perform music not only from the first series, but also from the just-released second series – for which they have added new elements and styles of compositions – alongside a supernatural neon light show.

We’re bringing one of our underground events to the Midwest for the first time, and to one of our favorite cities: CHICAGO!
It’s been 7 years since we properly hit Chicago with a full-scale event (you may remember one of the hottest nights in our long history, practically soaked to the skin at the old Congress), and we can’t wait to return full power with friends and family coming from miles around. We are building a sonic magnet to draw you in from all around the country, taking over a huge room and transforming it into a full-on immersive sweatbox in the style of the raves I grew up on. Flickering lasers, writhing bodies, and undulating bass….all united together on one level!
For this first seasonal gathering we will celebrate the dawning of Spring: rebirth, regeneration, and a radiant gratitude for life. And the whole team is amping up on all levels: art, music, interactivity, and community.
And of course we are welcoming an awesome array of auditory talent:

Experience a rare multimedia performance by Wolfgang Voigt, one of the most influential figures in contemporary electronic music, as he brings his project GAS to The Art Institute of Chicago. Drawing on Romantic landscape and classical music as much as ambient minimalism and techno, Voigt creates an uplifting and enveloping evocation of the wonder of the natural world.
Based in Cologne, Germany, Wolfgang Voigt has had a prodigious output under various aliases on many record labels, including Warp, Harvest, Raster-Noton and Force Inc, and the label he co-founded - Kompakt. The four GAS albums, originally released between 1996 and 2000, were reissued in 2008 to enormous international acclaim, and they have been widely recognized as the most important ambient music creations of the 1990s. After 17 years, Voigt returned to GAS with the release of Narkopop a new album of symphonic ambient music.
Support for Live Arts programming is provided by the Woman’s Board of the Art Institute of Chicago.
