Bringing The Best Live
EMO, INDIE & POST-HARDCORE
Music To The Northwest Suburbs 

Chiburbia was born long ago...
The music that emerged from the late-1990s and into the early 2000s is so incredibly foundational in the hearts of many emo/indie/post-hardcore kids today. It's this very generation of music that inspired 3 kids from Illinois State University to figure out how to book shows on a boring college campus. 

And thankfully, they did. Through a series of events that fate was certainly smiling upon, Mela Faron, Joe Kalis and Heather Faulkner all found each other at ISU, 150 miles away from their hometowns, which were coincidentally all within 5 miles of each other in Arlington Heights and Wheeling. 

With a longing to re-produce the music scene they all enjoyed in Chicago while in high school (going to shows at Fireside Bowl, The Metro, Bottom Lounge, and more), they figured out how to book shows at various rooms in the student union (most famously, The Bowling And Billiards Center), and were collectively responsible for dozens of shows while at ISU between 2000 and 2005. 

Enter the "real life" stage of life involving careers, marriage (Joe & Heather actually married each other), a kid, and all kinds of general adulting...and the world of booking shows was set on the shelf for the next 14 years. 

At the end of 2018, Joe, Heather and Mela reunited, with a re-ignited goal of booking shows. However, with all three living back in the Northwest suburbs, and plenty of venues booking shows 20 miles away in the city, the desire was specifically to find a venue in the Northwest suburbs where people could consistently enjoy shows with the same emo/indie/post-hardcore music that they loved so much. 

And so... Chiburbia Music was born. 

We will be bringing amazing live shows to a venue called Coach House in the most perfectly centralized suburb in Chicagoland... Schaumburg. Stay in touch with us in the following ways...
