METRO AND UNCOMMON GROUND ANNOUNCE SUSTAINABLE SOUND SERIES

METRO AND UNCOMMON GROUND ANNOUNCE SUSTAINABLE SOUND SERIES

Metro and Uncommon Ground, neighbors in Wrigleyville for twenty years this summer, will partner for a new music series focused on local artists beginning this spring. The first event on Saturday March 5 at Metro will feature Chicago bands In Tall Buildings, Cloudbirds and Algebro plus a special cabaret stage sponsored by Intelligentsia coffee, supplier of Uncommon Ground’s house blend coffee & espresso, featuring the artists Sad Brad Smith and Bone and Bell. Tickets are on sale now at the Metro website and in person at the box office.

It is rare for any business to survive two decades, but even more unusual to find two independently owned small businesses thriving, growing, and working together to enhance the local arts and culture of a neighborhood. Beginning when Uncommon Ground opened in Wrigleyville in 1991, Metro and Uncommon Ground shared a unique relationship and commitment – not only to the neighborhood they shared, but also to nurturing and supporting local musicians. The two venues have collaborated numerous times over the years, most famously for Uncommon Ground’s annual Jeff Buckley tribute events.

In 2011, they will take their shared sensibility forward in curating the Sustainable Sound series. Through a succession of events throughout the year, Metro and Uncommon Ground will present some of Chicago’s best and brightest new talents. On March 5, the series kicks off with In Tall Buildings, Cloudbirds and Algebro on Metro’s main stage, plus Sad Brad Smith and Bone and Bell on a special Cabaret side stage. Tickets are $7 advance, $9 day of show. The show is 18 & over and starts at 8:30pm.

Uncommon Ground will host an after party at 11pm at its Wrigleyville location, one block north of Metro at 3800n. Clark Street. Complimentary passed appetizer and $4 drafts will be available.
