Lining up for the annual Sound System Block Party in Wicker Park.

If the Pitchfork Music Fest is not in the cards for this weekend, a block party might be just the ticket. The annual Sound System Block Party is now in its ninth year. It takes place Saturday from noon -10:00 p.m. at Milwaukee and Evergreen avenues in Chicago’s Wicker Park. There will be DJs, bands, dancers and more. It’s the brainchild of Eric Williams – owner of The Silver Room, a jewelry and more store on Milwaukee Ave. But before Williams hosts his annual event he stopped by to spin for Eight Forty-Eight's DJ Series.
