Music 45 ‘Who Keeps Chicago in Tune’: The Hideout

Every year New City Music (Music 45), an online publication reviewing, detailing and profiling all things music, puts out a list of Chicagoans dedicated to providing and sustaining outlets and platforms for the city’s ever-changing and evolving musical community.  We made this year’s list (#18) for our musical diversity and our other multi-faceted programming and patronage. “Still best known as a rock and folk club…it’s also branched into hip-hop and LGBTQ dance nights, and expanded its non-musical palette, which already included poetry and spoken-word events, to incorporate comedy showcases and political action meetings.”
