From September 26, 2014 – September 27, 2014
Metro is pleased to host Cold Waves III, a two day festival of cold wave artists benefiting Hope For The Day, on September 26 and 27. In September 2012, a collection of musicians, peers, co-workers, friends and family gathered together for a memorial concert to celebrate the life of Jamie Duffy, a beloved Chicago musician and sound man who had passed away earlier that year. The memorial show was referred to as Cold Waves, in no small part due to the high number of “Cold Wave” artists who participated in it. Cold Wave is considered to be a sub-genre of Industrial Music and more specifically a mending of electronic-dance and guitar-driven styles.
