Label Vs. Label in Millenium Park

2008_o8_audio_picnic.jpgIf you missed today’s stellar installment of Audible Architecture with The Ex at Millennium Park’s Great Lawn, never fear! You can get your fill of electronic music in the open air when the park puts on their Audio Picnic tonight, where you can witness firsthand the intense battle for local label dominance as employees of Thrill Jockey Records, Bloodshot Records, Kranky Records, and Drag City throw down their finest tunes at this musical free-for-all; rare recordings and as-yet unreleased tracks from the labels’ upcoming albums are definitely part of the evening’s playlist.

The event also boasts appearances from other local record labels, area DJs, music historians, and special guests, so plan on an enjoyably well-rounded night at the park.

The showdown takes place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and it costs zero dollars to attend!
