Hey, blogspot readers, SouthSide highly recommends attending one of the upcoming events rockin' Chicago's hot local scene.
On Wednesday Jul 20, Centro Chicago (located 3819 N. Ashland) will be hosting the ELEM/Youth in Distress in Isreal benefit show from 6p to 8p (tickets for this all-ages event is $30). Enjoy an open bar (beer/wine), appetizers, a raffle and live music by Todd Kessler (http://www.myspace.com/toddkessler) and DBP (http://www.myspace.com/dbplovesyou).
All proceeds will benefit ELEM's programs for at-risk teens in Israel.
For 29 years ELEM (http://www.elem.org) has pioneered innovative and effective methods of helping distressed youth; today the ELEM network of professionals and volunteers extends to over 30 cities and villages throughout the country and reaches more than 50,000 youth annually. ELEM provides a continuum of care, including preventative treatment and referral services at counseling centers, rehabilitation interventions in residential or day treatment, vocational training and mentoring, and mobile humanitarian services via nightly vans. ELEM offers a safe haven, a sympathetic ear, and a voice to the largely invisible troubled youth of Israel.
For more information about this event, email Stacy Cohen at firstname.lastname@example.org OR Lindsay Stein Cohen at email@example.com or phone 312.526.3759
If attending, it's recommended you RSVP asap!
SouthSide's good friends, Verona Red will be hosting their very own Red's Summergasm! And they claim it's WAY better than your ordinary orgasm, blogspot readers.
Every Saturday from Jul 23 to Aug 27, these local rockers will be rockin' Ace Bar (located 1505 W. Fullerton) featuring special band guests like PJ's My Cousin Too, Machinegun Mojo, Mr. Russia, My My My, The Bright White and many more as Verona performs 5 different movie soundtracks each week. On Jul 23, they will be performing Anchorman (starring Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Steve Carell). Other movie soundtracks include Saturday Night Fever, Purple Rain, and The Wedding Singer.
PLUS there is a drink special ($20 which includes admission and 3hr open bar)!
All of this (and probably more) for a very, very low admission price of $5!
Sorry, kids, this is a 21+ older show.
