MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN!
Update: We've added a Song Request option on the tickets page. If you'd like to play a DLC song, instead of a stock Rock Band 4 song, select that option and answer the related question that's part of the checkout process.
The Song Request option is only available till noon on Thursday. We might make it available at the event, but no promises.
With the release of Rock Band 4, we're dusting off our plastic guitars and bringing back our original fundraiser where we move Rock Band from the living room to the concert hall, giving you the chance to rock out in front of a screaming crowd. We're dropping the tournament aspect of it, and replacing it with a night of live-band karaoke. On Thursday, November 12th, come to Emporium (Wicker Park) for our 6th annual holiday fundraiser.
Grab 3 friends for your band, pick your favorite song, grab the mic or a controller, and rock everyone's faces off with Rock Band 4, the latest in the popular videogame franchise. Costumes encouraged! Or take the stage and let our house band fill in for you on any instrument you might need. You can also just come to watch. The show alone will be a lot of fun to see!
Entry is free but a drinks/tokens package that comes with a Chicago Loot Drop 16oz pint glass is available via Brown Paper Tickets. If you just have to rock right away and want to ensure you get to take the stage, you can also donate to be on the priority band list and crowdsurf to the front of the line. Or just make an additional donation.
Time: 8:00 pm (Doors @ 7:30 pm)
Location: Cards Against Humanity Theater (1917 N Elston Ave, Chicago, IL 60642)

Just like last year, Chicago Loot Drop has something very special planned for C2E2. Once again, we’ve partnered with five talented local artists to bring to life the creative visions of five very special patients from Comer Children’s Hospital for our third edition of Drawing Dreams. We’ve asked these five children to describe themselves as a superhero: What sort of power(s) would they have? What would they do with those powers? What would their superhero name be?
We took their responses to our five artists, who are creating a few sketches depicting what a comic book cover based on the children’s’ ideas could look like.
GABO, also known as Gabriel Bautista is a Chicago based Illustrator who has worked for DC Comics, Image Comics and Oni Press.
He is the artist for THE LIFE AFTER written by Joshua Hale Fialkov, published by Oni Press.
He is a recurring artist on Elephantmen (Image Comics), and series artist on Albert The Alien (Thrillbent).
He is also Eisner and Harvey award winning colorist for his work in Comic Book Tattoo (Image Comics), his color art can also be found in several issues of The Spirit and All-Star Western (DC Comics).
Ali Cantarella is a comic artist and watercolor children's book illustrator working and playing out of Chicago, IL. Current projects include "The Hasty Pastry" -- a comic all about a girl named Cat and her dog, Pugsly, working in a bakery together -- and "DINOBUGS!" a coloring and activity book where dinosaurs and insects get morphed together for whimsical results. When not working on artwork, Ali loves creating food as colorful as it is tasty, biking around the beautiful city, and leaving half-drank cups of tea on various surfaces around her apartment. You can check out her work at www.thewetstain.com.
This is Rich’s second year as a Drawing Dreams artist. He is a high school art teacher and freelance artist from the Chicagoland area. He has always been interested in the comic book medium and has been actively attending conventions for the past four years. Rich has worked on a wide range of private commissions and has recently completed original sketch card art for Star Wars, The Hobbit, DC Comics, Topps, Marvel Comics, Cryptozoic and HBO, through Rittenhouse Archives. You can view much of Rich's portfolio on his company website www.diligentvisual.com.
Tony is a Mixed Media artist (Pencils, Inks, Digital, Watercolors, etc) located in Chicago, IL. He has been published in comics such as X-Files, Dungeons and Dragons, Transfusion and Memory Collectors among others. Check him out on the Interwebs at Facebook.com/tonymoy88 and instagram.com/tony_moy.
Ryan Browne (pronounced Brown) is an American comic-bookmen who once used his own sock to wipe pizza from his face when no napkin was present. When not cleaning his face or his pizza stained socks, he writes and draws the questionable comics "God Hates Astronauts" and "Blast Furance: Recreational Thief". In addition, he co-created and drew the spaghetti and western free Spaghetti Western known as "Smoke and Mirrors" for IDW and is the often confused fill-in artist on "The Manhattan Projects" from Image Comics. Currently he is taking over as second banana artist of "Bedlam"—which coincidentally is also published by Image Comics. As of writing this his face is happily pizza free, but the day is young my friends. The day is young... You can check out his highly questionable web-comic at www.godhatesastronauts.comand follow his wild swearing on Twitter and Instagram @ryanbrowneart.
Curious what these artists came up with? Come by booth 1294 at C2E2! We’ll be on the main floor, raffling off this one-of-a-kind artwork. Oh, and did we mention that our booth is the only place to get one of our super-classy t-shirts?
Time: 7:30 pm
Location: The Public House Theatre (3914 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60613)
Chicago Loot Drop is bringing back our classic The Hobbit sing-a-long! Come join us for what is sure to be a night of great mirth, singing the songs of Middle Earth!
Join us as we go down, down to Goblin-town and start roll-roll-rolling down the hole, on the greatest adventure (that lies ahead)! We think that the 1977 Rankin-Bass animated version of The Hobbit was one of the best adaptations of Tolkien's classic verse to song, but it was still missing something. So we added a bouncing One Ring to the on-screen lyrics! With such classics as "The Greatest Adventure" and "Fifteen Birds in Five Fir Trees," it's one of the soundtracks we remember most fondly from our childhood, and still find ourselves singing in the shower from time to time. So let's raise our glasses and crack the plates, because that's what Bilbo Baggins hates! Speaking of glasses, we'll have delicious beer for sale from our sponsor, Arcade Brewery, that you can fill up with!
As always, just showing up means you're supporting Chicago Loot Drop and helping put smiles on the faces of patients at Comer Children's Hospital, and we’ll have more opportunities for you to further help our cause, at the event itself.
