    There are a lot of street festivals in Chicago but these are two that have been going strong for many years, so I thought I would make a general thread for both to discuss and speculate the lineups each year.

    Big fan of both of these, always a fun time for a great price!

    Me too. The lineups are always really solid and you get to either see bands for way cheaper than normal or bands before they really blow up (i.e. Snail Mail last year). It's really cool.

    Russian Circles? I might make my triumphant return to Do Division after a few years off.

    Damn I just realized that I'm a dumb dummy because I totally didn't pay attention to Snail Mail last year.

    She's so good. Got to see her at Schubas and then a few months later she sold out SubT and then played Wicker Park fest a few months later before really blowing up. It was awesome to see her blow up so fast.

    Well this seems disappointing at first (to me).

    Archers of Loaf are playing an aftershow that Saturday at SubT. Ratboys was originally opening when they were gonna have it last yet but idk if they’re still opening.

    Anyone going today? I’m at my friends house in the suburbs but looks like I will be back in time to catch Slow Mass and Archers of Loaf. I don’t know AOL that well but one of my music buddies told me they’re worth seeing.

    Smoking Popes would be fun to see today, but I don’t think I’m gonna make it.

    I’ve honestly never listened to them before but since I’m here I’m going to check them out! All I know about them is they’re a pop punk band from here.

    They have some really catchy stuff. I’m not a huge fan, but I always enjoy seeing them live.

  17. If anyone (like me) missed Smoking Popes last weekend, they're also playing the Skokie Backlot Bash in August, with The Verve Pipe.

    I used to live in Skokie up until 3 years ago, those events are always fun.
