Taste of Randolph Street continues today in the West Loop. Come for the delicious food (bellyQ, Publican Quality Meats, Grange Hall Burger Bar), stay for Joy Formidable. Greensky Bluegrass, Bear in Heaven, and Nathan Scott also perform.
Despite its name, Mods vs. Rockers isn't a bunch of skinny guys in Beatle boots going at a bunch of other guys with tattoos and moderate tinnitus. By day, more than 1,000 vintage motorcycles, scooters, and hot rods will be on display for both subsets of music fans to drool over. At night, a "Rockabilly Rumble" features Reverend Horton Heat, the Supersuckers, and JD McPherson.
In Marquette Park, the Inner-City Muslim Action Network presents Takin' It to the Streets, a one-day music festival featuring Vieux Farka Toure, Brother Ali, Rhymefest, and more. Black Star headlines.
