Thursday, August 31st the Moods + Foods performance series presents Rent Party, our favorite feminist garage folk band.

Their history:

Phase 1: Two Chicago feminist singer/songwriters who play garage folk, although one half of the band can’t drive, and 0 halves of the band have a garage. Phase 2: the duo becomes a 4-piece, electrifies, and finally gains a garage and even a practice basement.

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE SERIES:

On Thursdays this summer and fall, Woodard Plaza will be transformed into a community gathering spot for food and fun. Come to 2819 N Milwaukee Ave, where Milwaukee Ave, Diversey Ave, and Kimball Ave come together.

Get a snack or a meal from a food truck or a local restaurant. Hang out with us for live music, literary readings, circus acts, and more. Enjoy being outside as the afternoon turns into evening.
