This has all built up to the highly anticipated launch of Girl Talk earlier this year, Kate’s third album. Produced with Grammy Award winning, Tom Biller at the infamous Paramour Mansion in LA, Kate has described the work as her best to date, an emotional purge and a mission statement for women the world over.Artist Website Buy Tickets

B-93 & Fusion Shows Present
Thursday | August 7th | 8pm | 18 & up
Singer/songwriter Chase Rice has applied the words of his high school football coach, Bobby Poss, in a series of accomplishments that others merely contemplate – he’s been the starting linebacker for the University of North Carolina; a member of a NASCAR pit crew; a touring artist who sold out strings of venues across the country without a record company, a manager or a song on the radio; and a co-writer of a record-setting, many-times multi-platinum single, Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise.”
After moving to Music City in late 2010, Rice recorded an album, Dirt Road Communion, on his own Dack Janiel’s label and quickly beat the odds. He landed it on the Billboard Country Album chart, and launched one of his singles, “How She Rolls,” onto Hot Country Songs. In a world dominated by corporations, that’s no small feat for an artist working on his own.
“I want to do something different,” Rice maintains. “I don’t want to go out there and sing the same old thing. Whether it’s the way I sing it, what I’m singing about or the production of it, I want it to be something fresh and new. If people like it, then great. If people don’t, then great. I’m gonna do what I want to do.”Artist Website Buy Tickets

The Entertainment District Presents
Saturday | August 16th | Doors at 8pm
Well, it's that time once again. A procession of young and determined "men" from the Western Prairies of Illinois head eastward around the big lake and into our backyard. Driving space-age vehicles, built and perfected in basement science labs, the boys will be traveling with impure thoughts of Michigan's sultry women (no, not you silly girl ... your mom!) and humming the chorus to "Baby's Got Back".
You know them. You love them. You probably, in some strange way, want to be them. The Spazmatics IL return to District Square this Saturday night. The weather will be perfect for making perfect mistakes, one after another, after another, after another ... you get the point. Tape in hand and 80's songs in your head!Artist Website
