Farewell Concert Venicio de Tolido & Malukosamba At The Gallery / Chopin Theatre Productions

Farewell Concert  to Wicker Park musicians in residence, Venicio de Tolido and his magicial Brazilian Malukosamba Band. Throughout this 3 hour concert everyone danced to songs which sometimes lasted 15-20 minutes. Some people even took off shirts to cope with nonexistent air conditioning! And the air was full of familiar smell of other hip events. It was a combination of Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas' bar scene with the energy of West Side Story.   This farewell was a fundraiser for Venicio who was brutally attacked in West Town in his head and had signficant medical expenses. The funds allowed him to return home to Brazil.
