On Saturday April 16th at 2pm, Chicago rap progenitors Stony Island will perform live at Logan Square’s Comfort Station, capping a twenty year hiatus. Scheduled to coincide with the Numero Group’s annual Record Store Day pop-up shop, Stony Island will exhume selections from their Golden Era songbook, the entirety of will be available for purchase via limited-edition, Krylon-colored cassettes, available exclusively at this event. For perspective, Stony Island lived the life that Common (then Common Sense) rapped about on record—train-riding, graffiti-writing, backpack-totting trips to bum rush WHPK mix shows. While Common gave the rap world a taste of Chicago, Stony Island inundated listeners with local folklore, name dropping El stops, record shops, and active officers on the city’s graffiti task force. For a guided tour of Stony Island, swipe your Metra card on the link below:
