Edward Hamel – 6:00p

SCRIPTS records is passionate about producing, promoting and archiving music taking influence from contemporary concert music, noise, ambient and electronic composition. Founded by composers and Chicago natives David Paha and Edward Hamel, the concept of SCRIPTS began in 2015 while both David and Edward were living in Los Angeles. Growing nostalgic for the progressive and evolving music scene of their hometown, Edward and Dave returned to Chicago in late 2016 and released their first pressing shortly after. They continue to expand their catalog by seeking out composers and musicians while also beginning to focus on publishing books from writers, graphic designers and artists of various mediums.

Joey Price – 6:30p

Joey Price was born on February 26th, 1988. He grew up on Chicago ’s Westside, living in a house with his parents and grandparents. A few years later he and his parents relocated to the West Suburbs where he attended private school until the age of fourteen. Before graduating from grade school his grandmother passed away. He was asked to speak at his grandmother’s funeral, but he did not know what to say. The only thing he could think of was poetry. He wrote a poem about his life experiences with his grandmother and after he was done he instantly felt better. Years past and he continued writing poetry about life issues that concerned him. Eventually he perfected his skills in poetry and his friends told him he should turn his poems into raps. He was finally confident enough in his skills to announce himself as a solo artist. His songs touch on so many subjects in life, and they do not follow the trends of commercial rap. He is influenced by artists he feels he can relate to such as Lupe Fiasco, Common, Kanye West, and Andre 3000. Joey Price is full of energy, creative and prolific.

Lucielle Furs – 7:30p

The “Hypnotic Pandemonium” of Lucille Furs has been alternately described as “poetic rhythm,” “sophisticated and mellow” and “dream beat-pop.” The group describes themselves simply as “baroque pop.”

The Music Manual UK describes them as “one of the hottest offerings to come out of Chicago.”

In the field of psychedelic rock, they are unique in their refusal to let the vibe take precedence over the virtue of the song. Peeling the layers might reveal a thinly veiled criticism of over-reporting and under-researching (“The Fawn of Teal Deer”) or the loneliness of voyeurism (“Carrie & Judy”).
