"Eclectic" is the keyword for this week's music coverage in the Reader. This issue contains our guide to World Music Festival Chicago 2010, which offers a globe-spanning melange of sounds and traditions, and another for the Hyde Park Jazz Festival. I profile elusive cult-metal god Chris Black and his Dawnbringer project, Gossip Wolf talks Travis Barker, grown-up toys, and local rappers, the Secret History of Chicago Music delves into the DayGlo pop-metal of Enuff Z'nuff, Photo Pit captures Riccardo Muti making his official debut with the CSO at Pritzker Pavilion, and the List highlights music ranging from the noise artistry of Fennesz to the folk pop of Bonnie "Prince" Billy & the Cairo Gang and the Indo-jazz of the Rudresh Mahanthappa Quartet.

After the jump, a classic Enuff Z'nuff video to further brighten your late summer day.
