EARS party v.4 at Schuba's 2-26-2013 at 7:30pm
EARS is pleased to present V.4 Networking party at SCHUBA'S ...except this year we are delighted to commemorate the event in honor of EARS founder MICHAEL RASFELD. Schuba's is "Ground Zero" for EARS and the place where it all began back in 1986 when a rag-tag shaggy cavemen-like barely intelligible group of Chicago recording engineers and studio owners led by Mike hosted its first meeting. Schubas was then an eclectic jazz/new wave/punk music club known as "Gaspars". Tragically, Mike departed from us in 1989 at the tender age of 38 but along with all past EARS Presidents, officers, and members we are dedicated to carrying on the torch started by Michael.

Our past networking events have been wildly successful and this year will be no exception. We have the pleasure of hosting our event here yet again 27 years after the first EARS meeting in Schuba's wonderful private party room upstairs with our very own bartender. You will have an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with fellow shaggy cavemen-like audio professionals, industry peers, and students. If you have been thinking of checking out EARS and getting to meet with your fellow comrades in the trenches, this is an excellent opportunity. Remember to bring some stone tools and business cards!

You don't need to be a member to attend this event and we encourage anyone curious about EARS to come check it out. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. but you can land early at the bar downstairs even sooner. The entrance to the private room is on the right once you enter through Schuba's front door. Once again, a special thanks to Schuba's events coordinator Terri Champelli for putting up with EARS for yet another year.
