This Weekend in Chicago 6.30

Last weekend was a blur. Though I tried to catch as much it as I possibly could, most of the time I spent wishing I could be in more than one place at once. Highlights included a packed house at Primary both nights, sold out shows at theMID, and of course Mamby on The Beach. If you haven’t already seen all of the dope photos that we took, they’re in an album on our Facebook Page.

This weekend is kind of a weird one. The combination of a festival last weekend, Primary’s birthday party, and a mid-week 4th of July next week seems to mean that talent buyers took this weekend off. With the exception of Sound-Bar, Friday is completely dominated by local nights. Saturday does have some pretty interesting day party options as does Sunday. This week’s guest mix hails from Grand Rapids, MI. Faren Strnad kindly provided us with an hour of some delicious techno beats to get you through the second half of your week.
