2009 Summer Fest Kick-off!

Winters in Chicago can be long but it is for moments like these that I am able to get through them. I am a big fan of live music and even more when they're $5 or less. I have many street fests I have been attending for about 5 years but as I get older I'm finding myself attending different fests with different "themes"...less drinking, more socializing, better music, classier vendors, etc. Saturday night kicked off the season of street fests for me. Meredith and I headed to the Belmont/Sheffield Fest to hear Trippin Billies rock out. I am a huge DMB fan and will never get sick of jamming out to their tunes, whether in my car, at Alpine, at the beach, at a street fest, while running down the lakefront, this year in Des Moines or any other place I can hear them. And even though its not the real thing...for $5 and just a quick cab ride away, I'll take it!

Jason and I headed out there on Sunday afternoon to see Mike and Joe. I realized that I have been watching them for over 10 years! Wow, where does the time go?


  1. Mike and Joe is playing in Rock Island on Saturday. I can't go because I have like 10 other things to do that day, but it made me think of you! :)

  2. That's your cousin Amy, by the way. I thought it would come up with my usual "amyleeqc." I thought about starting a blog and calling it "Miscellamy" so I registered the name and now it's coming up with that when I comment. Weird! Anyway, just didn't want to confuse you. :)

  3. I saw the Amy in it and after reading Rock Island I knew it was you :) Start the blog!! Fun stuff!
