The Urban Sandbox is an all ages multi-canvassed open mic that features poets, emcees, musicians, comedians, solo-performers, puppeteers and more. The show strives to provide a safe, creative space for everyone, with an emphasis on giving young artists a place to take stage, hang out and interact with established artists outside of the student/teacher paradigm. It is currently in its 11th year. It is hosted by Curator and Co-Founder Dan “Sully” Sullivan alongside David Gilmer, Shelley Geiszler, Nate Olison, Defcee, MuddaGoose and Raych Jackson. Join us every second Thursday of the month at the Voice of the City Studio – 3429 W Diversey Ave, Chicago, IL 60647. Doors open at 7:30, show runs 8 to 10PM with a $6 suggested donation at the door.
