Tomorrow, Sunday May 26th: Spend your Memorial Day weekend taking in some amazing live art and supporting a great cause! The former courtesy of Janeen Kern and the latter being All About Pink — a breast cancer foundation. Last Fall, we supported Janeen's Art & Instrumentals series and it was a great time of live art inspired by a series of instrumentals, a gallery display of more amazing paintings from Janeen, and free food/drink. Can't go wrong there, huh? Hope to see you there!
event sponsor Gowhere Hip Hop, Dartise Media Design, and more!

Last week, we threw our first of more events to come at the New Era Chicago flagship store downtown - a FREE show, nay! Experience.
Gemstones headlined "Elephant In The Room LIVE!" - the first time he performed tracks from his new mixtape (a must-DL), which included remixes of Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" and Fun's "We Are Young". Additionally, Gem performed many verses a capella style, to really drive home his eye-opening messages of building a relationship with God as well as the ills of society and the music industry. It's quite frankly the first, and only hip hip show we've all been to, that began with a blessing and ended with everyone joining hands in prayer. Yup, literally everyone. It was a powerful series of moments to say the least.
Adding to the experience was the live art during Gemstones' performance from Janeen. You can see her creation in the photos - a painting entitled "Gemstones" that was inspired by the words he was intensely delivering to the packed store. We'll have our own, in-depth video covering it all coming soon, but for now, get a glimpse of what went down with the amazing photos above and a bonus guerilla-style video of Gemstones performing "Crazy" below.
