Denizen MKE and Washington Park Media Center will launch the 43rd+Vliet Live+Livestream Music Series on Wednesday, April 3 to create a space for artists and music fans to gather and celebrate the grand opening of both businesses. Additionally, the series will raise funds to support vibrant streetscaping and pedestrian safety efforts on Vliet Street, led in collaboration with contributors Quorum Architects, Near West Side Partners and West Vliet Street Inc.

From 9:00 p.m. to midnight, Washington Park Media Center’s BLANKET FORT LIVE will host local creators-in-residence for a livestream experience. DJ Dripsweat will offer enticing world music in a new media-rich environment in collaboration with Transpire. Co-founded by DJ Dripsweat (Dria Rushing) and DJ Austen Von (Zeke Schultz), Transpire is a sober social space for dancing, fitness and friendship. Caroline Carter, The Real Food Doctor, will offer healthy raw vegan snacks and non-alcoholic drinks. Adam White Ossers will make new real-time media content for the live stream. The livestream experience will be accessible in person with the purchase of a ticket; however, Washington Park Media Center co-owner and multimedia artist Wes Tank will host a free livestream on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitch and other online platforms.
