North Coast Music Festivalgoers.

“I’m going to see Passion Pit tonight at North Coast Music Festival!”—Megan Lovejoy Deja, photography director

“Because of Mark Loehrke’s piece on the Chicago Jazz Festival, I’ve become a total Robert Glasper acolyte. I will definitely check out his set on Sunday night. I’ll probably pack a Pastoral picnic, because I’ll take any excuse to get bread, cheese, and wine from that place!”—Elly Fishman, associate editor

 “I am going to see Dave Chappelle in Tinley Park tomorrow. Hopefully. After this happened last night, who knows, man.” —Tomi Obaro, assistant editor

“In a joint attempt to dodge the North Coast/Jazz Fest crowds and enjoy the final days of summer, I’ll be aiming for a far-north rooftop—The Fountainhead, maybe.” — Matt Pollock, editorial intern

 “I am going to say farewell to summer with friends at an ad-hoc cookout in the park south of Foster Beach. My contribution: a growler of Tighthead Irie IPA and a sour cherry pie from First Slice.”—Cassie Walker Burke, executive editor
