Late Nite Laundry

Featured in the Chicago edition of the Waterloo Sparkling Sessions, presented by Waterloo Sparkling Water.

Late Nite Laundry is a jazzy, psych-rock five piece based in Chicago, IL that straddles the line between modern psychedelia and jazz fusion. Still in their infancy, Late Nite Laundry released their first project, “Thru the Wash,” just this year, and have since hit the ground running with live performances all over the country. Since their formation in early 2019, this group has made their way from their home in Chicago to venues in New York, Nashville, Charleston and beyond on successful summer tours. Thanks to all the support they’ve received along the way, the group is now in the process of recording their first full-length LP which will dance along the same lines of modern rock and jazz.

Dark Matter Coffee
"My favorite coffee in Chicago is Dark Matter Coffee. They've got multiple, themed locations around Chicago, and they're all so cool." - Late Nite Laundry Recommended in the Chicago edition of the Waterloo Sparkling Sessions, presented by Waterloo Sparkling Water.

Bric-a-Brac Records & Collectibles
"Bric-a-Brac Records. While primarily a record store, I love how they carry a wide variety of oddities like vintage toys, VHS tapes, cassettes, old school punk mags, clothing, etc. Enough of an unusual record store that I think it could be classified as a boutique." — Slow Mass "We have a soft-spot for Bric-A-Brac Records. I hesitate to even call it a record store, it's so much more than that... vintage memorabilia, life-sized Simpsons statues, thousands of records new & old, & the sweetest corgi that runs around the shop like he owns the place. Definitely worth the trip!" - Late Nite Laundry Recommended in the Chicago edition of the Waterloo Sparkling Sessions, presented by Waterloo Sparkling Water

Montrose Beach
This popular dog-friendly beach draws patrons for its numerous activities including kayaking and volleyball rentals, non-motorized boat launch, and distance swimming at Tower 4. After working up an appetite, visit one of the many food concessions to sate your hunger. Take some time to look around - a natural dune habitat shows thriving endangered plant life, and attracts many migratory birds during the fall and spring. "We love Montrose Beach in the summer! They've got a little restaurant/bar where live music is held right on the beach. It's also spitting distance from the dog beach if you want to see a million dogs have the ACTUAL times of their lives." - Late Nite Laundry Recommended in the Chicago edition of the Waterloo Sparkling Sessions, presented by Waterloo Sparkling Water.
