There is one called Black Dot that's held around September or November. This upcoming fall will be the third annual festival.

Hey, guy. Would anyone know if there is an Afropunk Fest in Chicago (or anything similar involving blacks and punk)?

@Obi - that's so dope, man.  Thanks for sharing that.  Big Lenny fan myself, too, since '93.  -Butter

Anyone who knows me or has heard my music knows I idolize Lenny Kravitz . So being part of this Lenny 20th Year Anniversary of "Are you Gonna Go my Way" is amazing. Next stop...performing with him! Check me out at the 1:51 mark.
