Ladies 1st Showcase
Clear Conscience Entertainment is at it again. This time, it's all about the femcees at the first ever Ladies 1st Showcase, Friday October 9th at Serbian Village Restaurant. So far, Lil Keisha, Dynastii Firstlady, & Breezy are confirmed to perform, but like any other CCE event, there is always a surprise waiting for us at Serbian Village! The show starts at 9PM and I'm hosting alongside DRXQUINNX on the 1s & 2s. Come out for good music, drinks, and fun! Watch CCE's Founder Darcey Henderson explain what the music management company is all about!
Fashion For the Homeless
Chicago's Divulge Magazine & Iridium have come together for a common cause: The Divulge Project - Fashion for the Homeless, a private fundraising event to raise awareness about poverty and homelessness. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Franciscan House, the second largest homeless shelter in Chicago. The night will also kick off Divulge Magazine's October issue release party and fashion show. For more information on tickets, donations, or how you can get involved with the movement, please visit www.thedivulgeproject.org!
Ugly On Purpose album Release Party
Femcee Ash Wednesday is throwing a release party at North Bar for her first official album, Ugly On Purpose, and is inviting the squad to attend! Performances include Pivot Gang's John Walt, the dynamic rap duo Jyroscope, and the always entertaining Jason Gatz (is it too late to request a Gatz & Goods appearance?). Doors open at 9PM and there is a $7 cover!
If you would like to see your event shared in the next SH!T 2 DO post, please email or DM me via social media. I'm trying to make this a weekly post that will eventually turn into a large events calendar if I get enough support.
