“What do people do who don’t live in a place that celebrates craft beer on any given weekend?” I wondered this aloud entering the Chicago Craft Beer Festival but had no time to consider such a fate – there were too many beers to be tasted.
Green was the theme of the Chicago Green Music Festival, held near Wicker Park on June 23 and 24. Along with street festival fun and a music lineup programmed by Subterranean, the Green Music Fest aims to promote environmental sustainability and introduce Chicagoans to eco-conscious products, companies, and ideas.

Foster the People‘s Mark Pontius and Cubbie Fink took over Ada Street’s vinyl library last night with a guest DJ set benefitting the band’s Do Good Project. Spinning crowd favorites including Daft Punk, David Byrne, and Notorious B.I.G. the guys kept the dance party kicking long after their sold-out show at the Congress Theater. The Do Good Project supports local charities in a variety of volunteer projects along the tour, including Music Works in Chicago. Look for the Do Good van at Foster the People’s second sold-out show tonight, and at each stop along their tour this summer.
