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.
For the first time ever, Gemstones is going to perform material from his new mixtape, Elephant In The Room, and we teamed with New Era to present this performance LIVE and FREE for you! Just drop in the New Era store downtown on 207 S. State St. between 7 and 9 tonight!
You'll also get to experience some live art by Janeen Kern, with music provided by Shade 45 & Power 92's DJ Averi Minor, and host Julian On Da Radio keeping things funny and entertaining. #TeamGowhere will be rockin' heavy, so come visit our table and take advantage of FREE giveaways, food, and beverages as well! Hope to see you tonight

Hope to see you there and come on by and meet our team!
Janeen Kern is a talented and creative painter here in Chicago, Illinois and she was recently featured on WCIU's You & Me This Morning. The TV feature was a very nice compilation of her creative process, what inspires Janeen and her paintings, and a sit-down interview with her on set to get to know her even more. Watch that above for your intro and check out janeensart.com for even more about her and her paintings.
TONIGHT! We are proud to be sponsoring Jannen's Art & Instrumentals - a live art expose where she'll be painting right in front of you and even interacting with the people to help create the work. There will be food and drink courtesy of our co-sponsors like Big Daddy BBQ, Leona's, and DeColores. Plus, your $10 donation will be going to All About Pink - a breast cancer foundation.
