Anthrax, Converge & more playing Kuma’s 15th anniversary fest in Chicago
Chicago's metal-friendly restaurant Kuma's Corner is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year with a one-day mini music festival across the street in Brands Park (at 3259 N. Elston) on June 27. It's got a pretty stacked lineup, with thrash legends Anthrax, metal/punk lifers Converge, and hometown heroes Russian Circles, The Atlas Moth, and Indian.
Ron Cain, Kuma’s President, says: "We are proud and excited to celebrate our 15 year anniversary with all of our loyal supporters and friends by throwing this amazing concert and festival. We are stoked on the amazing lineup highlighted by Anthrax as our headliner; we’ve have had long-standing relationships with all of the bands playing, and we are going to blow the doors off of the Avondale neighborhood. Join us while we party, drink, and of course eat all of the best foods that Kuma’s Corner has to offer!"
Tickets will be available at all Kuma's Corner locations and at EmptyBottle.com starting February 7. A portion of the proceeds will go to Hope for the Day, "a non-profit movement empowering the conversation on proactive suicide prevention and mental health education."
In 2017, Converge got their own vegan burger at Kuma's.
