There are two punk-rock festivals happening in Chicago this weekend: HoZac’s Blackout and WHPK’s Summer Breeze. While the former encourages heavy drinking significantly more than the latter, they’ve both stacked up awesome, obscure lineups, and even share an act (Detroit’s Tyvek). Maybe hardcore punk and noise-rock is your thing? Maybe it’s not? Either way, Soundboard is full of recommendations for great music this weekend, at these fests and elsewhere. See what some Reader writers have to say about it after the jump.
