Open Mike Eagle Is Coming To Save Us All…


Red Bull Sound Select is an artist development program that works with the best curators in local music scenes to bring fans unique shows.  We are proud to announce on July 7th at Double Door Open Mike Eagle will headline our latest installment. Red Bull Sound Select acts Saba and the debut of Air Credits, the new project from The Hood Internet and ShowYouSuck will also perform in support.

The show is 18+ and is only $3 with RSVP here:

At the risk of sounding too confident, we’re willing to put this all-Chicago lineup sonically against any of the shows you’ll see this year or next. Open Mike Eagle has skewed traditional rhymes to reflect his “art rap” style, combining that with a furious live show.  Saba is coming off of his guest role on Chance the Rapper’s “Angels” as well as his own stellar resume.  Not to be outdone, both The Hood Internet and ShowYouSuck can stand on their own up there on stage, but their debut together? SHEESH. This is your chance to catch them on a “I saw them before they broke big” level.

Rise + Shine by LIE | Chicago Truborn X New Amsterdam Vodka


RSVP-only, subject to capacity. Early arrival is suggested…

Rise + Shine is more than just a wake up mantra. Deconstructed, the phrase itself alludes to a way of life… a way of looking at the world head on and declaring ownership of ones experience. While “bad things” certainly do happen to “good”/all people, what separates the dreamers from the achievers is the reaction to said happenings.

Rise + Shine is an homage to waking up every morning, persevering beyond adversity, and most of all, the dedication and commitment required to become a master of your craft; a master of yourself.
