The first event will be on Friday May 12th, 2012 at the headquarters of Threadless (1260 W. Madison Ave. Chicago, IL, 60607) from 7:00-11:00 pm. There is a suggested $20 donation at the door and all proceeds will go toward funding startup costs for the new brewery. The event also claims to be a “beer potluck” inviting guests to bring their favorite beers to the event to drink and share. “The Threadless motto is ‘Make Great Together,” said Arcade Brewery co-owner Lance Curran “so we can’t think of a better place to kickstart our fundraiser.”
The brewery has invited a host of bands, acts, and video game designers to entertain guests throughout the evening. Martin Atkins (Public Image Ltd, Killing Joke, Pigface, The Damage Manual, Murder Inc., Nine Inch Nails, and Ministry) will headline DJ and opening acts include Ones Bent to Zeros, Prom Band, and the comedy sketch team Comedy Think Tank.
