Despite the fact those relentless summer weekend festivals are pretty much over, there’s still plenty of eating, drinking and live music going on this weekend in Chicago. WXRT is teaming up with Goose Island tomorrow for the 312 Urban Block Party. The event happens at Fulton and Wood (main stage is on the corner of Walnut and Wood) and costs just $10 to get in. I’m a fairly big fan of Cayucas, which goes on early, at 4:15 p.m., but there are several other bands, plus a half-dozen food trucks confirmed for the event, which runs from 4 – 10 p.m.
Cayucas 4:15-5 p.m.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra 5:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
Thao & the Get Down Stay Down 7 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
The Breeders 8:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Confirmed food trucks:
- The Tamale Spaceship
- Jerk 312
- Haute Sausage
- Bombay Wraps
- DönerMen (German)
- Taquero Fusion
- The Eastman Egg Company
The Fest runs from 6-10 p.m. today; 1-5 p.m. tomorrow. General admission tickets are $50 and include a commemorative festival glass, program guide, and 20 drink tickets. VIP admission tickets are $100 and include the extra features of a commemorative festival t-shirt, a VIP food voucher, and a VIP access lanyard. Designated Driver tickets are also available.
