This Thursday, April 1, we are playing a special April Fools’ Day show at Silvie’s Lounge on Chicago’s north side. Come out for a sing-along dance party that will follow the premiere of A Sample Life’s newest original song. This will also be the last time to catch us live for a couple of months, as we will be headed back into the studio for recordings and videos. Be sure to check our photo/video sections of this site to keep up-to-date with A Sample Life.

(let this be a hint: …new video inspired by Chicago’s newest bar to be released soon…)
