green music.

25 Jun

looking for something to do tonight? check out Green Music Festival in chicago’s wicker park. the boy and i are planning to venture down there to check out Yo La Tengo’s set this evening. i’m excited, as i’ve never seen them live; and the weather is finally looking sunshiny enough (after a week of low temperatures) for strolling and late night outdoor activities.

the best part of this event: the cause.

The brainchild of the West Town Chicago Chamber of Commerce, the Green Music Fest is where thousands of people who care for the environment will unite to enjoy high quality music and discover new ways to go “green.” There will be local retail, art and craft vendors, plus a green vendor village.

With the support of the City of Chicago Department of Environment’s Chicago Center for Green Technology, who is sponsoring the green section of the event, an estimated 60-plus vendors and sponsors will participate in the third annual Green Music Fest. The event will also be produced in the most eco-friendly way possible with bio-diesel fuel operated generators, biodegradable plastic cups, recycling and composting options, free bike valet, and much more.

a donation for good reason gets you street festival fun and live entertainment all weekend. I’M SOLD. see you there, chicago!
