Here at the hostel we’re psyched about the TNK Festival coming to Chicago January 12-16th at Lincoln Hall, Metro, and Schubas. A 5 day pass is $100 and includes an opening night reception, free cocktails, trolley travel between the venues, and a chance to meet some Chicago rock critics. Otherwise, the shows are $15 a piece.
Definitely check out The Handsome Furs from Montreal. This husband and wife duo not only put on a great live show, but play some very good electronic rock music. In addition, they are playing at Lincoln Hall which is right by the hostel.
An awesome Mid-Western born hip hop/rap star, Freddie Gibbs has been described as the next Tupac…and we agree. Any fan of the hip hop genre should not miss his performance at The Metro. *Also, other great acts like Besnard Lakes, Mister Heavenly, Twin Shadow will be performing, plus many more.
*This is going to be a great fest with great bands in excellent venues, book your tickets for TNK and your room with Chicago Getaway today!
