Eight Forty-Eight

A preview of Chicago's summertime music scene

On Tuesday, Lollapalooza released its lineup for the three-day August festival. But Lolla is just one place to get music on this summer. The city hosts events in nearly every genre of music and local street festivals often offer up unexpectedly sweet selections.

To get a preview of the upcoming summer concerts, Eight Forty-Eight spoke to Peter Margasak of the Chicago Reader. Margasak can also be heard monthly on WBEZ’s Radio M with his New Sounds segment.
