HIDEOUT BLOCK PARTY
Hooray for the revival of this anti–street fest, a traditionally laid-back gig that nonetheless should raise a few pulses with its 2011 headliners: Mavis Staples and Andrew Bird.
9/24 The blue-collar tavern and grassroots community center revives its end-of-summer blowout in grand fashion for its 15th birthday. On deck: the orchestral-pop violinist Andrew Bird, the gospel-rock icon Mavis Staples, the legendary B3 noodler Booker T Jones, the one-man juggernaut Jon Langford with a backing 40-man chorus, and more—all for a mere $25. Sat noon–10. The Hideout, 1354 W Wabansia. hideoutchicago.com.
