Graffiti in the City is taking a temporary hiatus. My favorite band through high school and college called the break they took last year from touring a temporary hiatus.

I suspect their hiatus to, at its core, be a disguised break-up, a release from commitment of tours and albums, and a freedom to dabble all over the music scene. Whether this be with equal portions of freedom and uncertainty, here are the last graffiti’s that have survived the city of Chicago.
