Resonate X will completely transform Metro Smart bar with more amazing Art, Music, and Performance than ever before! Started back in 2006 as a way to foster the Burning Man community here in Chicago, Resonate has become the showcase of an entire community movement that has grown exponentially over the past 10 years.
