The dudes at Silver Wrapper have announced the Wicker Park Summerfest, scheduled for July 22-23, 2006 down in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park. I went and saw the Benevento Russo Duo there last year and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

    Yeah, this festival is great because it’s totally small and there are all the elements of a street festival in Chicago with some higher caliber talent signed on. I’m going to try and be around for this.
