Vintage Rockabilly & Tiki
The 50s are coming back July 21st as the Garage celebrates with vintage Rockabilly and Tiki themes.
Rockabilly is one of the earliest styles of rock music, with a "blend of country & western and rhythm & blues". An interest in rockabilly endures even in the 21st century, often within a rockabilly subculture.
Also enjoying a wave of popularity in the 1950s: Tiki culture, which began in the U.S. in 1934 with the opening of Don the Beachcomber, a Polynesian-themed bar and restaurant in Hollywood. Tiki was also integrated into music when jazz became augmented with Polynesian, Asian, and Latin instruments and "tropical" themes creating the Exotica genre.
Of course there's lots of vintage items related to both Tiki and Rockabilly around, and you'll find some great ones at the Vintage Garage.
Enjoy Rockabilly Music, Tiki Culture and as always, lots of vintage home furnishings, clothing, jewelry, household items, electronics and more. It’s all at Vintage Garage Chicago, 5051 N Broadway June 16th from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Off the Argyle stop on the Red Line!
