    Since early-April, The Arts of Life has been hanging work by their artists on the walls of the Empty Bottle, as part of our quarterly Music Friendly Art (MFA) initiative that showscases art and artists from Chicago and beyond.

    Today we celebrate the organization with a closing party featuring none other than THE ARTS OF LIFE BAND, who makes danceable party music with a rock edge. It is an ongoing collaborative project between disabled and non-disabled artists in the Chicago area, based out of the Arts of Life community of artists. The Arts of Life Band performs at local events and fundraisers, and does rock concerts like the one you'll see today. Opening the show is HEAVY DREAMS, the latest loud-lyrical-pop project of Chicago artist and musician EMILY KEMPF, who's work has also graced these hallowed walls.
