Fest mania: rockin’ the block in the Windy City

Not to be confused with Seattle’s Capitol Hill Block Party, Chicago venue Hideout also throws an annual festival that goes by the name Block Party. This year’s 11th incarnation goes down September 7 and 8 in the venue’s parking lot. And guess who’s playing the fest this year? What band has a perfect name for this kind of thing? You guessed it: Bloc Party will be there. Also slated to play are Chi-Town native Andrew Bird, Dan Deacon, Art Brut, and the Frames. You can head to Hideout’s site for more info.
