To celebrate Mother’s Day, RSVP Gallery would like to honor all moms by supporting Connections for Abused Women and their Children’s effort to further awareness about the issues facing our community. 

Founded in 1976, Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) is Chicago’s oldest domestic violence program. The organization offers a variety of services and resources throughout Chicago, including: shelter, substance abuse treatment, counseling, court advocacy, and more.

With stay-at-home orders still in place, there has been a marked increase in calls and text messages to domestic violence hotlines both in Illinois and nationwide, which means organizations like CAWC need extra support. Executive Director Stephanie Love-Patterson says that clients are currently in need of electronic devices with data plans, gift cards (especially for grocery stores) as well as employment opportunities with COVID-19 has resulted in layoffs.

After stopping by the shop a day prior, G-EAZY brought his ‘Endless Summer’ tour to Chicago’s Huntington Bank Pavillion. Backed by a live drummer and an impressive lighting setup, G seamlessly moved between new and old work, ensuring that the 10,000 person crowd got what they came for.

Saint Pablo Tour Chicago

We got a chance to see the opening show in Indianapolis, and the show has transformed a bit since its opening night. West did away with many of the lengthy instrumental interludes, and the concert was much more succinct, as songs flowed from one to another seamlessly. The heart of the spectacle stayed true, as Kanye drifted from end to end of the stadium, his disciples moshed below him. West was vigorously focused and energetic, and commanded his hometown crowd with ease.

 

RSVP enlisted two of Chicago’s premiere photographers, ‘Swopes’ and ‘Trashhand’ to capture photos of the spectacle, while we took care of the video. Check out a gallery of their photos below and the video above for a full recap, and in case you missed it, we took on Gucci Mane at UIC.

RSVP Gallery x Schoolboy Q’s Blank Face Pit Stop

Only a day after the release of his long-awaited Blank Face LP, Schoolboy Q began a quick string of shows to promote the album before a full-blown tour. Groovy Tony will be making nine ‘pit stops’ in eight days to promote his album. Chicago was the third show of his cross country trek and fans got a chance to meet Q, purchase merch, and get their gear signed at Shuga Records. By the time the signing ended, Schoolboy had nearly lost his voice.

 

Two hours later, fans eagerly awaited his arrival and chanted as he took the stage in front of the sold-out crowd. Despite barely being able to talk, he performed a slew of hits from his old projects and his new LP. Schoolboy matched the energy of his fans who were packed into the mosh pit, in a uniquely intimate experience. Q made it clear to fans that these shows were only a small taste of what to expect in the coming months. Check out the video above for a full recap.

Don C. knows what he is doing. His hats are at the pinnacle of sought-after headwear and his first drop of shorts are some of the rarest to date. You can scour the Internet for hours and come up with one pair, maybe. The first release featured NBA team colorways, including his hometown Chicago Bulls. If MJ had the option to sport these, the Bulls might have won 12 championships in his era.

 

Without the assist from Mitchell & Ness, Don returns with a single monochromatic red pair, that are a nod to his home team. Gold hardware on the drawstring tips and back zips return to give the shorts his signature ultra-luxurious look. Each pair comes embroidered with a large Just Don hit on the front, a small hit below the waistband in back, and 23’s stitched into each side. Don C. himself said that the shorts represent the grandiosity that should be on-court, combined with the functionality you need off the court.

 

The shorts are available in-store and online at RSVP Gallery. For more information email [email protected] or call (773) 770-6666
