The rock lounge Angels & Kings, formerly of River North, reopened last night to an invite-only crowd in the lobby of the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago. Pete Wentz and his new band, Black Cards, played a short set before posing on the red carpet (that’s him, with what we can only assume are pro-Bears swipes of solidarity greasepaint) then hitting the bar. The band Your Villain My Hero and the DJ duo Team Bayside High followed Wentz and Co. on stage. Browse our pics below, then check back later today for The Chaser’s point of view on the evening’s festivities.
