Tomorrow, September 17, Windy City Indie will launch “Bluefecta,” a livestream concert full of healing, hope and connection through the arts. The event headliners will be led by Chicago-based rapper Ric Wilson, who released They Call Me Disco with Terrance Martin earlier this year. Other performances will include the timeless ‘70s Detroit punk trio, DEATH, Chi-town’s folk legend John Langforn and violin and cello duo SistaStrings of Wisconsin. Internationally acclaimed Anishinaabe hand drummer Harvey Dreaver and the Browns Crew will also be performing.
Bluefecta is an opportunity for virtual attendees to make a difference in their community. While the concert is free and available to stream on YouTube, all proceeds will be donated directly to four high-impact voting initiatives in Michigan and Wisconsin. These groups include ROC Action Michigan, Detroit Action and Milwaukee groups, Leaders Igniting Transformation and Voces de la Frontera Action. The ultimate goal of the night? To encourage Midwest viewers to make their voices heard every day and at the polls.
The night will be filled with songs and stories of resistance and change: “The show is a little reminder that truth, resilience and hope are out there, if we’re willing to listen for them and act on their behalf,” Sonny Garg, Windie City Indie co-founder explained in a statement.
