If you don’t know Too White Crew, here’s a look at what you’ll get…
It’s time to give credit where credit is due. Fat City in Champaign did something pretty awesome and it seems that a lot of people in the ‘Paign don’t even know yet. They built an amazing live music venue. The City Center opened in April and overnight it’s the new spot for local, regional and national acts coming the C-U and the 217. Don’t have the official numbers yet but it looks like it holds at least 1000 people, more with the VIP mezzanine. They even have an elevator – presumably for both ADA requirements and as a lawsuit limiter (think booze-soaked human tumbleweed rolling down stairs).
Couldn’t have come at a better time either. Too White Crew went from playing on raised 4×8 sheets of plywood with our heads scraping the ceiling inside Fat City to this:
This is a game-changer for TWC in the 217 since so much of our show is visual and requires a good stage. We aren’t alone though either. For years, the Chicago band scene has been wondering when there’s gonna be a go-to place in the House of ‘Paign. So big ups to the fine folks at Fat City for making it happen and for what’s about to happen to your live music scene.
Added bonus: Y’all get a much better view of our Booty Shake Contests! (For better or for worse…) See you July 31st!
