Downtown Sound: New Music Mondays

Filed under Music

Downtown Sound: New Music Mondays is a new series bringing new indie/pop artists and groundbreaking rock veterans to the world renowned Jay Pritzker Pavilion. Each concert will be emceed by a performer from the innovative organization Young Chicago Authors. Concerts will take place on select Mondays, June 6—August 24. All events will take place at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millenium Park.

Admission is free and organizers are hoping to attract a variety of music-listeners (and I’m sure they will) as the lineup for the summer event from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs is pretty diverse. Props to the CDCA on this one. It seems like all the good bands for summer concerts are part of corporate sponsorship nightmares like Lollapalooza; so it’s nice to see a killer show at an awesome city venue.
