Artists including Jeff Parker, Robust, Umphrey’s McGee, and more have contributed to a new compilation released through Quiet Pterodactyl to benefit local Chicago musicians and venues by raising funds for the Chicago Independent Venue League’s SAVE Emergency Relief Fund. The collection, titled Situation Chicago 2, is out May 21, with physical editions arriving in July. Below, hear Parker’s cover of War’s ‘Slippin’ Into Darkness’ and check out the video for Robust’s ‘I Don’t Know Why’.
The first installment of Situation Chicago, which came out last year, raised $35,000 for 25 local independent music venues. It featured contributions from Jeff Tweedy, Ric Wilson, and more.
