As part of 2nd Floor Rear, you're invited to a listening party for I before E by The Bicycle Thieves. Texas Coffee will be served, and blankets will be provided to snuggle up with, including a blanket that the artist will be crocheting. Visitors are encouraged to contribute to the blanket using provided yarns, crochet hooks, and knitting needles.
This is about comfort; comfort provided by blankets and warm beverage in cold body, comfort of fond memories as well as comfort of something new and the comfort of watching your hand contribute to the making of something larger than you.
Come hang out, listen to my father's music, drink coffee and help me make a blanket.
2nd Floor Rear is a 24-hour festival of experimental spaces, apartment galleries, and ephemeral and migrant projects, celebrating Chicago’s vibrant community of alternative and DIY art spaces.
