Chicago Sun-Times
Tuning in with Thomas Conner

Millennium Park's "Downtown Sound: New Music Mondays" boasts the Feelies, Red Red Meat and more

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

At a point when the summer concert schedule is becoming ever-more dominated by expensive corporate hypes and city government seems to be raking us over the coals every time we turn around (arrgghh, those parking meters!), the Department of Cultural Affairs is upping the ante once again for quality acts presented for free as part of its "Downtown Sound: New Music Mondays" series in the exquisite setting of Millennium Park.

The big draws from my perspective are the first Chicago reunion show by New Jersey's legendary art-punk/frenetic pop band the Feelies and a showcase for another, local group of reunited heroes, Red Red Meat.

The dates announced so far follow below. For more information, visit the Millennium Park Web site.
