Millennium Park hardly has a monopoly on the blues this weekend—outside the fest you can see Shemekia Copeland, John Primer, Selwyn Birchwood, and many more.
Not at the festival but playing in town are Eddie Shaw, Peaches Staten, L’Roy, Eddy “the Chief” Clearwater, and many more.
For free, for fun, or for profit
Including Billy Bragg, Mudhoney, Television, a DJ set by Andrew W.K., and more
Pitchfork afterparties: There’s no Bitchpork this year, but there is Rotted Tooth, plus plenty more.
