Bill Callahan @ Alhambra Palace

Art Direct / Event / Produce

“Callahan was able to out-unique himself with a show at the Alhambra Palace, a Middle Eastern restaurant in the West Loop.” —Chicagoist

Following what we feel was an astounding performance at the Garfield Park Conservatory, Land and Sea Dept. was approached a second time by Bill Callahan, asking that we again find him another ‘unique’ performance opportunity.

We all ultimately decided to present Callahan at the alluring, beguiling and enchanting Alhambra Palace, a towering Middle Eastern wonderland on Chicago’s West Side, one that both baffles and confounds.


Callahan and his band (of course!) slayed, making the most of the wildly inappropriate setting, providing concertgoers an experience that they’ll likely never forget. 

Circuit des Yeux opened, and the sold out crowd reveled in delight from start to finish.
