Hip hop Logan Square

What's the hip hop scene like here? Are there any cool underground places?

  • bdq

    Furious spoon is not an example of hip hop in the area. It's a restaurant that plays hip hop music.

    Burlington, Coles, and eastroom have hip hop shows sometimes. There are a variety of places outside of the neighborhood that do as well, like sub t and reggies. As far as underground, I am not in the loop on those.

  • Backpack rap. Sure.

Roofer needed

Hi all, I'm looking for part of my flat roof to be resealed and also some flashing reattached to my roof pitch. It seems hard to get a company out for a project that isn't a complete tear off.

Any good recommendations?

Drywall contractor recommendation ?

Hi EB, Can you recommend someone that could do a smallish drywall job in Logan Square? Basically a few full sheets, patching some holes and making the walls "painter ready". Thanks!

Kedzie Ave Mess

Lately, I feel like I need an off-road vehicle to navigate Kedzie Avenue north of Logan Blvd. The patch in the north-bound lane right before the expressway is particularly horrible. Clearly, there's some ongoing infrastructure work going on, but the pavement patches every several feet are not holding up well. Anyone know if there are plans to repave that entire stretch sometime soon? I haven't been able to find anything online, but I don't really know where to look. My small car might soon demand we consider alternative (but slower) routes.

  • I believe the whole stretch will be refinished once the work is done. They have been back out doing patch work and this morning were doing deeper work closer to Kedzie/Schubert. The whole Logan Boulevard and circle interchange were resurfaced earlier in the fall.

    I believe the whole stretch will be refinished once the work is done. They have been back out doing patch work and this morning were doing deeper work closer to Kedzie/Schubert. The whole Logan Boulevard and circle interchange were resurfaced earlier in the fall.

    The city stopped immediately north of the interchange and Kedzie since we were still going through water main work (boulevard area finished earlier last summer/fall). You can sign up for alerts for the water main projects which noted resurfacing would happen once project is completed. I can see they are still in process since the sewer openings are still covered with materials.

    Found this from an older email -

    Once the services (water main) have been transferred, the street will be temporarily restored with concrete until complete restoration of the street with asphalt can be done. ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps will be repaired or installed where needed, along with repair of damaged parkway and sidewalk. The final restoration of the street will include milling the surface, placing new asphalt, and painting the street markings.

  • Thanks! It looks like I need a project ID number to sign up for alerts, but it's great to know that a smoother Kedzie Ave is in the (hopefully) near future!

  • Our building (facing on Kedzie) had a Water Management flier posted way back with the Project ID and how to sign up for updates. Not sure how to search other locations but it was helpful. This is the project ID we subscribed to and the areas it covers:

    Project No: 1501186

    Location:
    ON N KEDZIE AVE FROM W DIVERSEY AVE TO N MILWAUKEE AVE
    ON N EMMETT ST FROM N SAWYER AVE TO N KEDZIE AVE

A thinly veiled commentary on American race relations, Get Out uses the horror genre to dramatize fears about the persecution of African-Americans and the suppression of black identity.
