“Shop Local” is a community-based art project spanning multiple mediums created entirely in Elgin, IL and entirely by Elgin-based artists.

The music portion of the project features 11 brand new songs from Watch City founding member Moore, and co-production from Watch City’s own Angrous and Aaron Kasz as well as hometown collaborator Cool Kennedy. Each song features commissioned artwork from a different visual artist; the front and back covers are also designed by Elgin-based artists. The art will be compiled into a full color 16 page booklet that will be included with all CD copies of “Shop Local”.“Shop Local’ will be released digitally worldwide on May 25th, 2017 and the album release party will take place the following evening at SSSA Theater in downtown Elgin (15 and ½ Ziegler Ct).

The “Shop Local” release party features a silent art auction, live performances from Moore, MAINTAIN, Angrous and Melo Tripp,the Taste of Elgin mini-buffet, and an exclusive T-shirt design being pressed live on the spot. These exclusive hand-pressed tees are being made at this party and this party only before the design is retired. The “Shop Local” release party is also the first place to get a physical copy of Moore’s new album “Shop Local” and the 16 page art booklet.
