Bohemian Nat'l Cemetery (Outside), Chicago, IL
October 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of the brooding folk masterpiece Chelsea Girl by Nico. We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Circuit des Yeux and special guests in bringing a live performance of the record, in its entirety, to the Bohemian National Cemetery for our Fall installment of Beyond the Gate. Modern new age legend, Laraaji, will be blessing us with an opening performance shortly after the sunset. There will be more details revealed in the coming weeks. Tickets for this rare, one-time event go on-sale Friday July 14th at 10am CST.
Beyond The Gate's Fall installment will be outside under a nearly full Harvest Moon in beautiful Bohemian National Cemetery, located on Chicago’s Northwest side. The concert will take place near the mausoleum. 2017 marks the fifth year of the Beyond The Gate series. We are thankful for the opportunity to present these concerts in a setting so rich in history. We implore all attendees to treat these events and the surroundings with the respect they deserve.
PLEASE NOTE! Parking is limited in the area surrounding the cemetery. Public transport, cabs, UBER, LYFT, carpooling all highly recommended. There will also be a bus option going directly from Empty Bottle.
Please be mindful of helping to keep the area litter free. It is because of our shared mutual respect for the grounds, and the cemetery's neighbors, that we are welcomed back each year. We applaud you in advance for being respectful. A portion of the proceeds from the event directly benefit the Bohemian National Cemetery as well as the Albany Park Community Center.
Special thanks to our friends at Half Acre Beer Company!
