Alli Klein: Family of Noise writesWicker Park Fest 2013 Is Here!

For nine years, Wicker Park Fest has been one of Chicago’s top summer festivals.  This year’s Wicker Park Fest promises more of the same, with three stages boasting some big names,  popular restaurants, arts, and all kinds of family activities.

You know that we here at CHIRP are mostly anticipating the music selections and this July there are lots to be excited about.  Performing on Saturday, the huge draws will be indie rock throwback sounding Cults and the Zappa-esque eclectic weirdos Man Man.  Sunday welcomes psychedelic rock and roll founder Roky Erickson (of the 13th Floor Elevators) who is not to be missed, except of course if you’re a huge fan of indie punk rockers Ted Leo & The Pharmacists, or the local epic circus that is 30 piece marching band Mucca Pazza who are also headlining that night.

Check out Wicker Park Fest Saturday July 27 and Sunday July 28 from noon to 10 pm. The fest runs down Milwaukee Ave from North Ave to Paulina St. and there is a $5 suggested donation, going toward local schools, non-profits and businesses.  Be sure to visit us at the CHIRP radio table to pick up some swag and say hello!
