:: 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.

The Art Institute of Chicago and The Empty Bottle Present | Kid Koala's Satellite Turntable Orchestra
Chicago Stock Exchange Trading Room: $10 students / $15 members /$25 nonmembers
Choose between two performances on April 18:
Tuesday, April 17 at 7:00
Tuesday, April 17 at 9:30
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.

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.

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.
Giving you MORE ART, MORE FUN and MORE PARTY. Expect for nothing short of a good time as we celebrate the artist and the spectators alike. On March 30th at Baderbrau expect:

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:
• Rezz • TroyBoi • TOKiMONSTA • Ivy Lab • Danny Corn • Andreilien •
