• Lisa Alvarado: “Powdered Unicorn” (2010)

A few months ago Drag City Records, one of the many Chicago labels featured in Kevin Warwick’s excellent overview of the local record biz, relocated to a cool old building on the near west side. Included in the deal was a defunct private bar that had played host to a soccer club. Drag City has found a use for the space, and on Friday the label will share it with the world. Renamed the Soccer Club Club, it will debut as an art gallery with an exhibit called Limpia, which consists of paintings by Chicago artist Lisa Alvarado (who also plays harmonium in Natural Information Society, a musical project led by her husband, bassist Joshua Abrams).
