My current place of employment is run by the folks at Jesus People USA who live in community on Wilson Avenue in Chicago. These same people brought the festival I loved & spent 9 summers attending - Cornerstone Festival. Across the street from the community house is a coffee shop called Everybody's Coffee & venue space called Wilson Abbey.
On Saturday, January 17th, 2015 there was a show at Wilson Abbey put on by some folks from the electronic music scene, primarily industrial, noise, & drone styles for a guy who is part of JPUSA as well as an artist in their scene. As an artist he is known as Millipede & as a man he is known as Don Hill. I have had a few brief encounters with him…enough to know he is a kind & loving man who unfortunately developed a fatal cancer. It seems this night was a success in many ways & financial support was raised for Don beyond expectation. It was RAD to see this.
Though Don did not perform, many friends of his did so I put together this playlist of the artist including a clip from a couple of the guys who helped organize the event.
Artists in the playlist include Candle Nine, Aphorism, Polyfuse, Noise Theorem, PBK, mindfluxfuneral, & Chicago Drone Ensemble.
