| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Festival season rolls on with this weekend's offering: Wicker Park Fest on Damen Ave. between North Ave. and Schiller St. tomorrow and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. In addition to all the usual non-musical attractions, this fest offers live sounds from Polvo, Ra Ra Riot, Bishop Allen, Isis, Maps & Atlases and Film School, among others. The suggested donation is $5, and proceeds benefit the Wicker Park and Bucktown Chamber of Commerce. The full schedule and more information can be found online at www.myspace.com/wickerparkfest.

Tired of outdoor festivals and looking for someplace comfy to bliss out? I can't think of anything better than the experimental electronic duo Matmos performing at the Lakeshore Theater, 3175 N. Broadway, in celebration of its new album "Supreme Balloon." Leprechaun Catering opens at 9 p.m. Sunday, and tickets are $15; more information available at www.emptybottle.com.
