Wow, what a great weekend it was in Chicago! I went to the Andersonville Midsomarfest this past weekend with my amazing friends, Mike and Royce. Andersonville is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Chicago. It was traditionally a Swedish neighborhood, and now it has transformed into an urban hub with lots of great shops, bars and restaurants, but it hasn’t lost it’s quaint neighborhood feeling.
I saw two great bands on Saturday, Rock Candy and Sixteen Candles.
I recommend seeing them. They are both high energy and entertaining to watch.
Here’s a video of me and my friend, Mike at the Andersonville Midsomarfest watching Rock Candy:
I deejayed for Funk Du Monde on Sunday afternoon, which is a weekly event at Vertigo Sky Lounge at the rooftop of the Dana Hotel in downtown Chicago. It’s a really fabulous lounge. I recommend you check it out. I will be playing there again in July, so I will keep you posted. My friend, Sadie is playing at Vertigo Lounge this Friday. Come see her and say hello. She is off to play for a cruise in the Mediterranean for the next 3 weeks with DJ Madrid.
Afterward, I went to see Jason Antone – www.jasonantone.com at his CD release party at Minibar. He did a great job performing his new songs. Jason is a great performer. He really pays attention to the details, and he is very professional. He did a great job this weekend. I love the new single and the video ROCKS.
Ok, that’s my update for today. Have a good one.
