Eight Forty-Eight

Photographer Jim Newberry captures Chicago's independent music scene

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. 

Music Button: Diane Izzo, "Horse of Diana" from the album One (Sugar Free Records)
