The Hideout's 15th anniversary festivites include a photo exhibit, 'Scrapbook: The Hideout Story in Pictures.'

The Hideout’s indelible aura comes from its owners, patrons and the many musicians who have taken its stage. For those who missed the magical moments--there's hope! Thankfully, many photographers captured some of the small moments that made the venue so special.

On Friday, Sept. 23 - the eve of the annual Block Party - Chicagoans will have the opportunity to see some of the photos as High Concept Labs hosts a photo retrospective of the Hideout. The show will feature the work of various artists, including Jim Newberry – a man who has made a name capturing Chicago’s independent music scene. Eight Forty-Eight recently sat down with Newberry at his studio in Chicago.
