FELABRATION!: A Celebration of the Legacy of Fela Kuti (featuring DJ Ron Trent & DJ New Life).
Doors open @ 9pm, party til 2am.
The party will be in the Coup d'Etat Lounge!
A Little about FELA KUTI:
Fela's musical revolution was fueled by the fusion of Jazz, Funk, Ghanian/Nigerian High-life, psychedelic rock, and traditional West African chants and rhythms to create a new hybrid that ultimately became Afrobeat.
To pay proper tribute to Fela, The Shrine will host a special FELABRATION! that will cover his musical career and artists who have worked collaboratively with him (Roy Ayers, Ginger Baker, Tony Allen) and all those who presently carry his musical message further. There is no cover for the event.

Coup d'état is the intimate lounge inside The Shrine nightclub. So quite literally, it is a blow against the current state of lounge and nightlife culture in Chicago. Comfortable, chic and most definitely sexy, it combines rustic charm and modern design. Primitive futurism maybe? Yes it looks good in magazines, but it feels even better. Think Marvin Gaye or Raheem DeVaughn...smooth & soulful, but with some grit.
It's the perfect spot to relax, sip a well made cocktail and chill with friends. Cozy up to the bar or lounge on a banquette. You know how certain records just make you feel sexy? The right room has the same power.
