Summer in Chicago is unlike anywhere else since we hibernate alllll winter, we are so excited about being able to leave the house without cringing and see other people and enjoy all the festivities that the city has to offer! Street festivals, MCA Tuesdays on the Terrace, free concerts in Millennium Park, Pitchfork, Lollapalooza... and that's on top of the fact that we have BEACHES! The best part is that most of the events are focused around music and art. I'll try to keep you up with all the goings-ons as they happen.
This weekend kicks off the season with the Do Division Street Festival. Empty Bottle presents the bands playing, so you know the lineup is great. I'm particularly excited to see Handsome Furs and White Rabbit.
Also this Saturday is Chicagoist's 5th Anniversary Party at The Whistler in Logan Square. Grammar and The Interiors will play with Chicagoist DJs Tankboy, Superbird and Pocket Taco. Whistler is quickly becoming known for it's fancy drinks and laid-back atmosphere, but the place is tiny so get there early!
