Evolve or Die:
The architects of Mods vs Rockers Chicago are making the bold move of creating a ALL NEW event. MvR Chicago had set the standard and spawned many impersonators in the last ten years and we feel that now is the time for a change.
The rally has greatly evolved from its modest beginings in 2005 with a handful of like- minded Cafe Racers and Scooterists hosting a grass roots gathering on Chicago’s North Lincoln Avenue to last years Mega Weekender with the Reverend Horton Heat headlining. The new event will no longer be a salute to the rival youth cultures of early sixties England but will now celebrates all of motorcycling’s rich culture and lifestyle.
On June 13th-15th, 2014, Steel Toe Press will launch the inaugural MOTOBLOT Vintage Motorcycle, Scooter & Hot Rod Car Rally.
BLOT: Origin is Norse Pagen; A Gathering to Worship with Sacrifice
MOTOBLOT 2014 will encompass all of motorcycling’s rich culture.
June 13: Friday Night VIP Punch-Up will begin at Isle of Man with an open bar and complimentary BBQ from Bricks II. At 9pm the event will move across the street to Martyrs’ for a Rockabilly Showcase.
June 14 & 15: Saturday and Sunday the festival will moveto Chicago’s historic, Fulton Street and Cobra Lounge. Fulton Street will be closed at Ashland and will host our outdoor festival with a Motorcycle / Hot Rod Car Show, an outdoor stage with our Rockabilly Rumble and Pin-Up Contest and a Motocentric Vendors Paddock.
