The Double Door

City/Neighborhood: 

<p>The black and white grain of this photograph is meant to harness that sense of unrefined local potential while echoing the historic draw of the venue.<br /><br />There aren't many Chicago bands that made it big that didn't play at least a show or two at Wicker Park's Double Door: Wilco, Veruca Salt and Smashing Pumpkins all made a stop at the 500 person venue on their way to larger notoriety. The Rolling Stones even graced these dingy confines in a surprise show in 1998.<br /><br /></p>
