Independent: Chicago Band Photography is a gallery show in the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival, taking place in Logan Square July 29th-31st along Milwaukee Ave., between California and Diversey Avenues.

With countless venues, Chicago is a hotbed for local musical acts. Many popular bands got their start in small venues here, playing to eager friends and fans. This gallery will exhibit film and digital photography of local bands and solo acts, from newer to already established; focusing on the punk and indie genres. This includes live photos, band promos, the crowd, candid shots, etc. The aim of this exhibit is to convey the feeling of community and excitement from a live show and bring this into a gallery space.

There will be a trolley running up and down Milwaukee Ave. so you can easily check out all the amazing galleries and bands that will be playing.

Friday, July 29th will be the opening reception for the show from 4 p.m.-11 p.m. at Crown Liquors at Diversey and Milwaukee (bar will be open till 2 a.m.). Come have a drink and browse the photographs of Chicago punk and indie bands.
