Join us for an evening of performances by emerging talent from St. Louis in partnership with Apple Music. Artists pinkcaravan!, J-Hop, and Bari will each perform a set. Then they’ll discuss how the music scenes in St. Louis and Chicago are connected to each other in a Q&A hosted by writer and filmmaker Cami Thomas. Check back for more sessions during our Chicago Music Industry Summit in September.
