Billie Eilish Concert
The famous 17-year old artist and Rolling Stone’s “Teenager of the Year,” Billie Eilish, is finally coming back to Chicago! Mark you calendars for her one night only performance. After making her debut at famous festivals like, Coachella, Lollapalooza and Camp Flog Gnaw, people seem to be jumping on the Billie Eilish bandwagon after she released her second album earlier this Spring. Her stardom has risen ever since her debut single, “Ocean Eyes” was released.
According to Billboard.com some of her most famous top of the chart songs include, “Bad Guy,” “Bury a Friend” and “When The Party’s Over.” Now all Chicagoans will have their chance to see her live come June 9th at the Aragon Ballroom, since she sadly will not be in attendance for Lolla this year.

K Fish LA Art Show in San Diego
A collaborative event will take place with our #ChromeCityCali Client, Kelcey Fisher (aka KFish) who is a muralist, artist and designer. His work has gone from the streets to the gallery and incorporates a variety of mediums, that he likes to call “controlled chaos.” Similar to himself, his work is a reflection of LA’s vibrant beach culture with pops of color, adding the complex of moody structure. Some of the major brands he has worked with include Toyota, Eaze, Sweet Fin and others. At this event the public will have the opportunity to work with Kelcey one-on-one to create two original collaborative paintings which are personalized and different, but work together as a cohesive series at the same time.
