On Thursday, May 24th 2010 RAW Natural Born Artists and the Double Door [1572 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago] will be presenting a multi-faceted creative showcase featuring new and innovative young Chicago artists, known as The Blend. The evening features musical performances, a film screening, fashion show, art gallery, and hair and makeup stations. These artists are all local talent, chosen for their ability and personality to be featured by RAW on stage and online. A few features include Bad Bad Meow, a high octane acoustic experience whose sound has been described as “Acoustic Country Punk,” Chicago based Hesperidian Productions, responsible for such local films as Stiletto and Awakening, and burlesque entertainer Tito Bonito (a.k.a. The Cuban Missile Crisis).
The Blend will also feature a cash bar for cocktails while you enjoy the night. Dress code is cocktail attire, so dress the occasion and get ready for an artistic circus of creativity!
