This party explores the alley as a place to escape. Salonathon will bring its kinetic energy to the Chicago Loop Alliance's ACTIVATE series through an evening of performance and spectacle designed to invite attendees to redefine who they are, rediscover who they want to be, and throw propriety aside.

ALEXA GRÆ, with a voice of liquid gold
ALEXANDER THE AMAZING, with circus magic
CZR PRZ, muralist galore
DAN OSEDIACZ, cardboard fort master (and beloved Beauty Bar Babe)
DIRT RED BRASS BAND, with bombast & verve
DJ DANNY LEROY, with sweet beats for the back streets
ERIN KILMURRAY + DANCERS, with major moves
JYLDO, with slow body rolls for all
MYKELE DEVILLE, with tunes and truth
TARARCHY, wheat paste poster master
... and GLITTERGUTS PHOTO BOOTH will be on site to capture your flights of fancy!
This event is free and open to all ages!*

Salonathon is an engine for experimental work, an inclusive creative community, and a great party. It manifests every Monday night at Beauty Bar as a performance series, and also in the form of residencies, retreats and partnerships beyond. Since 2011, Salonathon has hosted thousands of performances and artists, and has nurtured the development of dozens of new projects and collaborations. Salonathon is a home for underground, emerging and genre-defying art! Learn more at www.salonathon.org.
