6.21.11 Atmosphere announces additional Chicago date for The Family Vacation Tour on August 5th!
Just announced, Atmosphere will be joined by The Family Vacation Tour crew at Metro in Chicago, IL on August 5th! This is an 18+ show. This is part of a handful of shows that are official Lollapalooza Aftershows!
Fresh off the heels of their brand new album, The Family Sign, their landmark headlining performance at the Soundset Festival and a well-received Bonnaroo appearance, Atmosphere are announcing another string of live dates with label-mates Evidence and DJ Babu (of Dilated Peoples), Blueprint, and Prof. The tightly knit crew will bring a multi-faceted set of performances to venues both intimate and vast, delivering new music and time-tested favorites.
Few of their contemporaries have dedicated such a large percentage of their professional lives to touring, and this statement rings truer with each additional outing. Atmosphere, originally a 2-piece consisting of a touring DJ and rapper Slug, have augmented their battery with the addition of producer Ant, guitarist Nate Collis and keyboardist Erick Anderson, reinvigorating expected classics with live instrumentation and performing songs from the latest albums with absolute, heartfelt accuracy.
Columbus, Ohio's Blueprint will be supporting the dates with a set drawn largely from his April release Adventures In Counter-Culture, a self-produced gem that straddles rock and pop while remaining steadfastly hip-hop. Representing Rhymesayers' western contingent, Evidence will be supporting his highly anticipated Rhymesayers debut Cats & Dogs with DJ Babu of the legendary Dilated Peoples, and long-time Rhymesayers affiliate Prof rounds out the bill.
Don't forget that you can also catch Atmosphere at Lollapalooza on August 6th! More info here.
