Taste of Chicago to Feature Chicago Indie Lables

Amid the funk stylings of Cameo (June 26) and the college radio love ballads of Counting Crows (June 27) and Barenaked Ladies (June 30), this summer's Taste of Chicago will also feature a side stage displaying talent from local music labels. Artists on the Thrill Jockey, Bloodshot and Earwig rosters will play on a special stage at the south end of the festival. Bands include Eleventh Dream Day, Fred Anderson, Doug McCombs and David Daniel, along with Bobby Conn. Extra bonus: indie music loving venue The Hideout will present a special performance titled "A Patriotic Salute to our 44 Presidents" on July 4th where multiple performers will perform songs based on each president. (As Hideout owner Tim Tuten heads to Washington DC this year to work for Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, I'm sure this patriotic project will be a labor of love.)
