| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Providing a prime example of the sort of exciting event that could be curtailed by the city’s ill-considered promoters’ ordinance, the local punk-rock record label Criminal IQ’s Totally Wired Fest moves into the Abbey Pub, 3420 W. Grace, at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Friday’s lineup includes Mentally Ill, Human Eye, AluminumKnotEye, the Teeners, TV Ghost and Daily Void, while Saturday’s performers are Zero Boys, Holy S---!, Clockcleaner, Canadian Rifle, Vapid, FNU Ronnies and the Catburglars. Tickets for the 18-and-over fest are $10 Friday, $15 Saturday at the door. For more information, visit www.criminaliq.com or call (773) 478-4408.

Summer Camp 2008, the first of the many big outdoor music festivals in the area this summer, takes place this weekend, Friday to Sunday, at Three Sisters Park in Chillicothe, IL, roughly a 2 1/2-hour drive from the loop. Performers include moe., the Flaming Lips, O.A.R., Umphrey’s McGee, the Roots, George Clinton, the New Pornographers, Girl Talk and more. Three-day passes are on sale for $158.50 including camping; the price at the gate is $178.50. For more information, visit www.summercampfestival.com.
