I’m a big proponent of the Chicago Independent Movies & Music Festival, the annual four-day extravaganza celebrating music and film that kicks off its fifth year tomorrow night. I’m also a fan of local indie hip-hop imprint Closed Sessions, so I jumped at the opportunity to run a contest for the label’s CIMMfest showcase. We’re giving away a pair of tickets to that showcase, which goes down Friday night at the Double Door; the evening is stacked with performances by Treated Crew, Juice, ShowYouSuck, Alex Wiley, Kembe X, and King Keith, and there will also be screenings of some Closed Sessions documentaries, including the premiere of one focusing on Wyclef Jean and a song he made about Chicago violence. The lucky contest winner will also receive a limited Closed Sessions T-shirt made by Nike, which is available in sizes small through XL.
