606 HIP HOP OPEN MIC: Chicago's most influential hip hop open mic night since1998!!

Tonight, I guest DJ once again at one of the freshest spots in the city. 606 Hip Hop Open Mic is known for its classic freestyles from some of Chicago's best locals. Not only the locals grace us with their lyrical skill, rappers from all over the U.S. and beyond show up to bless the cypher. My set will close out the night with Shon Roka (Brickheadz) fashion. I believe I am gonna take them on a journey, if there in the parting mode I might just hit them with a surprise each time. From AZ to Yelawolf with a splash of Soul and Breaks. Let me work on my set right now while you read this article I got from Centerstage. Pretty damn good article to.

An institution that’s located at Wicker Park/Bucktown's busiest intersection, Subterranean offers something for just about anyone. It leads a dual life as a late-night lounge, complete with cheap drinks and bar food, and an excellent intimate music venue with eclectic acts that cover almost every genre. The lower level, known as the lounge, has a smattering of low couches, perfect for perching on while watching the action at the nearby DJ booth or bar. The walls are accented with striking paintings produced by local artists, all of which are for sale and rotated regularly. The upstairs Cabaret Room, which was a brothel at one time, features local and national bands strutting their stuff. The small size, accessible bar and balcony make it a very intimate venue for live music. The whole building, accented with antique light fixtures and low lighting, creates a very laid-back vibe.

The variety of events at Subterranean is vast; you can find indie mainstays and local bands (ranging from Oh My God to Shellac to hip-hop outfits) almost any night of the week, and the Tuesday night open mic is legendary. The lounge usually boasts a DJ or two every night, spinning everything from house to hip-hop. The full bar boasts daily specials to assure that a cheap buzz is always available, and a selection of burgers, chicken wings and quesadillas satisfy any late-night hunger.
