Rockabilly and Tiki are the theme of the next edition of Vintage Garage Chicago. The market returns for its fourth run this summer in the parking garage at 5051 N Broadway in Uptown.
DJ Killer Diller will be on site spinning vintage rockabilly tunes, and vendors will offer vintage items that fit the theme, including clothing, jewelry, housewares, furniture and more.
"Rockabilly is all about the 50s," says Melissa Sands of Vintage Promotions, LLC, producer of the show. "It's a subculture and a way of life, a remnant of the 50s that remains today."
Also enjoying a wave of popularity in the 1950s, Tiki culture actually began in the U.S. in 1934 with the opening of Don the Beachcomber, a Polynesian-themed bar and restaurant in California.
"It'll be nice to bring a bit of the tropics in as well," Sands says "Tiki items make great accent pieces."
