CORDOBA is a Chicago-based jazz fusion sextet. Their music combines intricate grooves, soulful vocals and explosive improvisation with a commitment to radical social change. A band of the times, their tranquil demeanor offsets the strong and persistent lyricism revolving current political and socio-economic issues that have unfortunately become so commonplace in our circles, news and beyond. For the people and by the people, CORDOBA carries the torch towards a brighter and newly imagined world.

BLACKER FACE is an afropunk/blues/rock Chicago-transplant act from Oberlin, Ohio, returning after headlining a raging Free Monday back in May. This raging collective is here to spew out their visceral dance of anti-oppression knowledge on all who dare to experience. It’s chaotic, it’s energetic as all hell and it’s just what the doctor ordered.
