It’s a Kling Thing!
It’s a Kling Thing! is one of the longest running DIY spaces in the Midwest. It began in 2007 and it’s still hosting shows! We are known for hosting emo, alt-rock, hardcore, punk, and shoegaze, but we book any type of musical acts. We are a safe space: no homophobia, transphobia, racism, misogyny, r*pe jokes (etc.). Donations always go to the touring acts. Touring bands are always welcome to crash here. We’re currently running on a vax card/negative test policy and highly encourage masks when inside. Most of our Summer shows will be hosted in our backyard, which is fairly large and handicap-accessible.Contact thru FB (linked) or IG: klingthingakron
