CHIRP Radio is psyched to be a part of Green Music Fest 2011 happening this Saturday June 25th and Sunday June 26th in Wicker Park!
This street festival features an eco-friendly vendor village offering arts and crafts, local services, art, and food. There’s also going to be an outstanding lineup of bands, including Les Savy Fav, The Thermals, Trampled by Turtles, and Yo la Tengo!
The festival runs from noon to 10:00pm on both days. See you there!

Thanks so much to everyone who voted in the Reader’s annual Best of Chicago poll and made CHIRP Best Overall Radio Station . We love you back! And if you just found out about us through the issue, you can listen to us at CHIRPradio.org — this site is our blog.
It’s the third Monday of the month, and that means CHIRP and the Whistler have concocted a great set of music and cocktails for you this fine evening! Tonight’s lineup stars Male and Colorlist, as well as the DJ skills of CHIRP’s own Michael Flavor. Oh, and did we mention that we’ll be raffling off passes to Pitchfork Festival? No, sir or ma’am, that ain’t a typo. It’s a total steal, if you consider that there’s no cover to get in! See you there.

During my brief time living in Boston, I wasn’t nearly as big a Rock music fan as I am now. In college, my exposure to music was still pretty much limited to what I picked up from school marching band, the a-cappella group I sang in, and Top 40 radio (which, compared to today’s offerings, I now realize wasn’t all that bad).
