In September 2012, a collection of musicians, peers, co-workers, friends and family gathered together for a memorial concert to celebrate the life of Jamie Duffy, a beloved Chicago musician and soundman who had passed away earlier that year. The memorial show was referred to as Cold Waves, in no small part due to the high number of “Cold Wave” artists who participated in it.
This year the festival has been expanded to two nights and will be held at Chicago’s iconic Metro. “Industrial” bands that span across multiple genres including Rock, Metal, EBM, Breakbeat and Punk will once again descend upon Chicago for two emotionally charged shows. 14 Bands over two nights, celebrating a style of music Chicago helped put on the map, will feature rare appearances, reunions and special guests. A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Hope for the Day, a non-profit movement committed to educating youth by using music and the arts as a defense mechanism against suicide.
