Silver Room Block Party 2016

With FREEDOM LOVE JOY PEACE, we dedicate the 2016 Sound System Block Party to Chicago's Southside!

We are reaching out to all our friends to help make this the best Block Party yet!
Saturday, July 16th 2016,
The Sound System Block Party is a day long celebration of Music, Art and Dance!
We bring diverse art to a diverse community with 4 Stages and over 30 performances of music and visual artists. What started off as a small gathering of friends has become Chicago's best homegrown Block Party, 10,000 strong!

Thanks to TSR owner Eric Williams for years of funding this event.  As we have grown, so have our expenses.  In order to continue this tradition at the level you've come to expect, WE NEED YOU!

It's with the Block Party spirit of community that we invite you to contribute. Any amount will help!

WHY DO WE DO THIS?
We love Chicago! Despite Chicago's social ills, we believe that music and art can unite us all. We know what the power of togetherness feels like.

WHY SUPPORT?
We know how much this event means to so many of you. The Block Party = Independent Music you don't hear on the radio.
The Block Party = Family friendly fun, bring yo kids!
The Block Party = One of the truly all-ages events in Chicago.
We are grassroots with the mission of spreading art, community and love.
