And don't forget about the Grant Park Music Festival (which yours truly will be singing in for the Beethoven!)

I was there. It was fantastic to see Hum back together. The last time I saw them was at Kalamazoo's Club Soda in 1998.

They played an unbelievable show. 90 minute set. It was better than most shows that I've paid a lot of money to see.

If you're not familiar with Hum you should give them a listen. Downward is Heavenward is one of the best albums of the 90's that nobody knows about.

My wife was kicked out of Millenium Park for bring a dog though. Wish I had known the rules ahead of time.
