We're pretty much music festivals' number-one fans — we love checking out new bands, getting all decked out in our new garb, and dancing the day (and night) away. That said, weekend-long events can get a little overwhelming and, well, hot. Sometimes, we just can't take 72 hours of partying.
If you find yourself looking for a little respite from the crowds at Union Park, then wander over to Free People today for a concert of the much calmer variety. Indie duo The Poet & The Bird will be performing at the boutique, so you can check out an up-and-coming band in the comfort of AC. Plus, Free People will be doling out 15% discounts to anyone with a Pitchfork festival pass. Now, that's our kind of party!
When: Saturday, July 14, from 1 to 3 p.m. Where: Free People, 1464 North Milwaukee Avenue (between Damen and North avenues); 773-227-4871.
