Evan Hazlett | October 2017
From releasing his first remix in 2014, to having several original hits with millions of streams, Gryffin has been taking the music industry by storm. His most famous hits include “Heading Home”, “Feel Good”, and “Whole Heart.” All of which are amazing songs that get the audience moving their feet and releasing their emotions. Gryffin’s most recently released “Nobody Compares to You” on October 6. Along with Gryffin’s powerful beats comes Katie Pearlman’s strong vocals. This fierce and passionate combination causes listeners to feel empowered while longing for a lost lover.
With a growing number of listeners, it’s no surprise Gryffin, along with support from Autograf and ayokay, have sold out several shows on their “Castle in the Sky 2017 Tour.” Gryffin’s Chicago show at the Bottom Lounge on Friday, October 13 is one of the shows that is sold out. However, if you have not managed to snag a ticket, there is another opportunity!
This show will be unlike many others because of an event happening at the same time but only a few blocks from the Bottom Lounge. Mike’s HARDER is hosting a new event named Doors by Harder as an official launch party of its newest campaign “What’s Out There Starts Here.” Gryffin will headline this event and perform an exclusive set. The location of this launch party is Moonlight Studios (1446 W Kinzie St, Chicago, IL 60641) from 8pm-1am. There will also be many different exciting activities including Luchador wrestling, an adult size ball pit, and a live art gallery with Amuse126. There will also be a VIP media sneak peek from 2-4pm at Moonlight Studios. Those 21+ can RSVP on Do312 HERE.
I am extremely excited to attend Gryffin’s performances and cannot wait to see what this tour has in store. From the times I have seen Gryffin at festivals, he never fails to put on quite a show. I have no doubt we all will be amazed.
