COLD WAVES is a celebration of Chicago’s relationship with industrial music, the memory of a fallen brother, and a fundraiser for suicide prevention charities. In the summer of 2012, Chicago lost one of its most loved and respected sound engineers and musicians, Jamie Duffy. His work ethic and ingenuity in the local music scene was a gift to many musicians. His abrupt passing had a profound effect on the electronic and metal music families he meant so much to.

In need of healing and hope, we brought 14 bands together for one magical night that year to raise money for Jamies family and say goodbye. But in the end, it was more of an awakening... a rebirth... a breaking wave. The success of the show pushed us to build it into an annual event, stretching over a weekend and moving it to Chicago's iconic Metro, and eventually stretching to events in Los Angeles, New York and beyond.

10 years later... COLD WAVES continues to shake the pillars of heaven by collecting the bands, styles, sounds and attitudes that Jamie held dear, and cement the sound of a Chicago institution alive and well. From Wax Trax! and Medusas to Uncle Al and Chicago Trax, this is our history and our future, the melding of man, woman and machine, the sound of melody, muscle and hate, basking in the glow of attack ships on fire down the shores of pluto.

HOTELS AND AREA INFO

The event takes place in Chicago's relatively insane Wrigleyville neighborhood, adjacent to the Lakeview and Lincoln Park neighborhoods. A rare treat for 2022 scheduling: NO CUBS GAMES! Will that stand? Who knows, with this years baseball lockout and setbacks, for all we know they will rebuild the schedule to include home games during our weekend. But for now, we ride!

Our favorite hotel, the "rock n roll" Days Inn on Diversey (now called The Versey Inn) is a great deal, about a mile down the street from the venue. As that hotel tends to book fast, there are some other great and affordable possibilities. Anything outside this list will likely be expensive the closer you get to downtown, unless you focus out by the airport, where you will find cheaper rates. Below are a few suggestions:

THE HOTEL VERSEY

MAJESTIC HOTEL

CITY SUITES BOYSTOWN

HOTEL ZACHARY @ WRIGLEY FIELD  (Expensive! Cubs fans! But... a block from Metro)

CLARIDGE HOUSE HOTEL (Gold Coast)
