A.V. Fest / Hideout Block Party Announces 2014 Lineup

Hideout-2014.jpgSummer in Chicago brings a wealth of live music opportunities; from individual concerts, to street festivals, and festivals, there is a plethora of great music options, and picking and choosing opportunities is key in order to experience all the live music you would like to hear in one summer. However, what seems to be discarded sometimes is how many large-scale, gargantuan music festivals we hold in the city, as compared to smaller festivals. From Lollapalooza, to Riot Fest, to Wavefront and North Coast, there is immense value to be had in a smaller, more intimate festival experience.

This is precisely why the A.V. Fest / Hideout Block Party is consistently my favorite music spot to be at during a Chicago summer season. With the emphasis on local food and drink and typically featuring many artists from Chicago as well, the festival gives one a strengthened sense of pride for their city, and the aspect of only one stage is a welcome change of pace from diligently reading a festival map and sprinting to another spot to see the next act. It's a full crowd, but comfortable, and the Hideout is a neighborhood gem that I feel proud to support each year.

This year's lineup was just released this morning, and brings with it a crop of stellar acts. The 2014 A.V. Fest / Hideout Block Party at 1354 W. Wabansia begins at 5pm on Friday, September 5, and at 12:30pm on Saturday, September 6, and tickets are $65 for a two-day pass. I can't wait for the surprises that this year's festival has in store, and to fall in love with Chicago even more than I thought was possible after the year prior.

A.V. Fest / Hideout Block Party 2014 Lineup:

Death Cab for Cutie
The War On Drugs
The Dismemberment Plan
funky METERS
Mac DeMarco
The Handsome Family
Sylvan Esso
Valerie June
Bad Luck Jonathan
Plastic Crimewave Vision
Celestial Guitarkestra

Pulling Strings: For Classical Music in Chicago, You Got a Guy - December 2014

By Elliot Mandel

If you see only one psychologically bizarre, and fantastically creepy opera this month, make it Bartok's Bluebeard's Castle at Thalia Hall.
