Last Minute Plans: 'Move Your Body' House Music Celebration At Pritzker Pavilion
By Justin Freeman in Arts & Entertainment on May 22, 2015 6:00PM
Chicago is quite proud of our history with electronic music. From the mural honoring Frankie Knuckles in Logan Square that we recently gave a shoutout to as one of our favorite pieces of street art in the city, to Mic Terror’s newly completed project with Teklife that was inspired by the late DJ Rashad, Chicago pays honor to its past.
Yesterday was the launch of Move Your Body: The Evolution of House Music, a summer long exhibit at the Cultural Center. The city has collected objects of importance to display from house music history, such as gig posters, while also interviewing the architects of the genre to share their stories of house music in Chicago. The exhibit continues until August 16.
Tonight is the exhibit’s opening party at the Pritzker Pavilion with sets by Farley Jackmaster Funk and Craig Loftis. It’s headlined by a live set conducted by Jerry C. King and Joe Smooth.
The House Legacy Project, the official name of the party, will run from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. If you’re into house music, not in Detroit for DEMF and looking for something to do this evening, it's worth checking out.
To get excited for the evening, check out a few streams from some of the artists performing below.
Farley Jackmaster Funk - The Acid Life
