Mark Rose (of Spitalfield) - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Mark Rose (of Spitalfield)
Chicago artist Mark Rose is taking a huge step forward with his upcoming label debut The Wild Type (9.25.15 via InVogue Records). "My stride on this album is a bit dark and haunting, but hopefully in an alluring way."
Mark is best known as a solo artist, and as former front man of indie/emo rock band Spitalfield. He has spent the greater part of the past decade writing, recording, and performing--and is showing no signs of slowing down.

Alternative Press Magazine writes, "Rose’s debut solo album, Wonderful Trouble (2011, self-released), has the style and emotion of a John Hughes movie soundtrack." This makes a lot of sense, as Mark grew up in the Chicagoland area many of these films took place, and was also very influenced by the movies growing up.

While at Columbia College Chicago studying music composition, Mark signed his first recording contract and publishing deal at the age of 19. He hit the pause button on other things happening in his life and got into a tour van. Fast forward to the present-- he has 200,000 album sales + 1,000 tour dates under his belt. Not a bad start for the songwriter, who first picked up a guitar to learn the intro riff to "Enter Sandman."

Rose recently inked a recording contract with InVogue Records (WMG), who will release his label debut The Wild Type on Sept 25th. The lead single "Well & Diet" has set the tone for the album, gathering nearly 10,000 YouTube views in the first week of release.
Rare Futures - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
