Storytelling Series: Martin Rev, musician

June 4, 2018 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm Tank

As a follow up to his show at Empty Bottle on June 1st, we’re stoked to welcome Martin Rev to the hotel for an evening session of stories moderated by Chicago-based writer and our pal, J.R. Nelson.

Martin Rev is an American musician and the instrumentalist behind the protopunk band Suicide. His solo career has released several solo albums for a number of labels, including ROIR and Puu. REVS style varies widely from release to release, from no wave to melodic pop to heavy synth induced rock. His work inspired a legion of musicians including fellow warehouse-dwelling experimentalists Throbbing Gristle, Depeche Mode, Daft Punk and even Bruce Springsteen. An experimental songwriting icon of the 80s, MARTIN REV finally makes his mark on the Bottle after nearly four decades of playing around the world.

This complimentary event will take place in The Tank at 7:00pm with seating first come, first served.


About the Storytelling Series
The Chicago Athletic Association hotel’s Storytelling Series shares compelling stories and interviews from inspiring movers, shakers and visitors making an impact in Chicago and beyond. From artists to musicians, innovators and adventurers to visionaries with a great story to tell – the series gives an inside look into the experiences that have shaped the speakers’ work and lives.

While our 125-year-old walls may not be able to tell tales of the past – and boy if they could – the Storytelling Series honors the tradition of welcoming the world’s finest into its halls by capturing today’s tales. The ongoing series takes place fireside in the Drawing Room, is complimentary to attendees, and affords one hour of storytelling followed by a brief Q&A. To withstand the test of time, sessions are recorded for our Storytelling Series Podcast, available for download and listening at and on iTunes.
