    Stupid Prioritization

    This weekend, Lollapalooza descends upon the city of Chicago for another 3-days of festival goodness.

    And for the first time in 4 years, we’re not going. Something about saving money for a wedding and honeymoon or something like that.

    In fact, we’ve been to no summer music festivals this summer.

    Le sigh. To have everything would be to go into debt. We wouldn’t want that now, would we?

    Free Summer Festivals Rock

    The Wicker Park/Bucktown Summerfest this weekend pretty much snuck up on me. If it weren’t for the fine folks at Chicagoist who posted some of the lineup, I would have never have heard of it. Acts that I’m going to definitely see:

    Starlight Mints
    The Living Blue (formerly known as the Blackouts)
    Youngblood Brass Band

    Best of all, it all FREE. Well, almost free. Fine, there is a $5 suggested donation. *snicker*

    We’ll probably take public transportation there end up bringing our own beer and food and end up rockin’ out cheap. And if there weren’t this one, there are only a gajillion others this weekend.

    Have a good weekend everyone.
