This October, we're excited to welcome Chicago's own Iverson and Boycut to the Whistler stage. As usual, there is no cover for this 21 and over event, and it all kicks off around 8:30pm.

Join us for what is sure to be the highlight of CHIRP Radio's year!
Come to the Revolution Brewing Tap Room for a fundraising event celebrating CHIRP Radio and our impending launch at 107.1FM! Your ticket includes an open bar, complimentary street food and small bites provided by various restaurant partners, the opportunity to enter to win raffle prizes, and live music by Gerald Dowd.
We're so close to breaking ground (or rather, rooftop) on our broadcast tower -- we're just waiting to receive our construction permit from the City of Chicago. It's been a much longer and more expensive journey than we anticipated, but we're almost there. So come celebrate! All proceeds will go to expenses related to the launch.
**Please note: this event is at the Revolution Tap Room on Kedzie, not at the Brewpub on Milwaukee.**
