Haha yea, I didn't know either until I was cutting underneath the cultural center today and saw posters for it.


There's also the Chosen Few Picnic in July

Related, who's all down to meet at the house music fest next Saturday??


is this actually any good? ive seen flyers but im soooo skeptical because of the way it's been exposed/promoted. and coming from miami where there's shit like Ultra, I've just internalized a healthy dose of cynicism for widely-endorsed electronic stuff.

i havent been to the Millenium Park thing specifically, but i cant imagine it will be anything like Ultra. the people theyre booking are all Old School Chicago 80s/90s house. half of the crowd will probably be middle aged south siders. i mean we're talking Ron Trent (who btw you should not miss)






went to Chosen Few a couple years ago and it was just the best vibes all around

Yea it's definitely old school Chicago house shit. That's why it's being promoted as like a city cultural event. It's the millennium park blues fest but with house. But I can almost guarantee that will be a more enjoyable thing than Ultra, which after looking at some previous lineups, yeeesh. It's just going to be grooves, great weather and it's free.

as far as open wound people go:

when i first moved here i was driving home from a job interview drinking a milkshake in my car, windows down, music playing and i get off at the irving park exit. i'm waiting at the light on pulaski and there's this dude holding a sign that says "badly hurt, any money helps" but i can't see his figure, just his one arm that's up with the sign. he starts walking between cars (there's two in front of me, three on the right) and he's clutching his other arm to his chest. as he walks by my passenger side window i look over and notice that arm has a huge fucking hole in it, it's just a gigantic, probably 7-8 inch wide open wound that's probably 2-3 inches across. i can see the bone no problem, i can see how yellow it is. the light turned green and i started to roll my windows up as fast as i could before he got to my driver's side. i was drinking the milkshake the whole time because i was so stunned. when he got to my driver's side window i was just starting to move and caught a facefull of open wound and i didn't have a milkshake until recently when i got my wisdom teeth removed. it was insane.

just wanna say i'm proud to live in a city that hosts a free house music fest with all local artists. the frankie knuckles tribute that they put on at millennium a few years ago was so great.

The whole Lincoln Yards development is going to suck. It could be such a captivating green space/park with river access and an amazing location, along with the opportunity to connect with the 606. Instead we are going to get a glorified strip mall full of fro-yo shops and probably a Verizon store. And now a livenation venue? what? no.

someone should burn down lincoln yards. having a minor league soccer team with their own stadium in a major city is psychotic. minor league soccer team can just play at depaul's field or something. insane. looks terrible. "you know what the city of chicago, whose professional soccer team has the 4th lowest attendance in the MLS, desperately needs? a minor league soccer team with their own stadium close to the city center."

Like I know the river is kind of nasty, but it's so under-utilized from an urban planning perspective. I also think if it held more focus from a design perspective people would actually start giving a shit about trying to keep it clean(er).
