Can’t Beat The Downtown Sound

Millennium Park’s Downtown Sound new music Monday is back again! And what’s a better way to start the week, than with a free concert and some time well spent with your special lady friend.

Downtown Sound: New Music Mondays – Hum with Volcano!

Hum Hum Volcano! Volcano!

* Date 05.31.2010
* Time(s) Mon, 6:30pm – 9:00pm
* Location Jay Pritzker Pavilion

The popular series, Downtown Sound: New Music Mondays, co-currated by At Pluto LTD, returns to Millennium Park for a second summer, featuring an eclectic mix of music discoveries, cutting-edge indie rock, pop bands and rock veterans.

Reuniting sporadically over the past ten years, Hum continues to pop up and rock out Chicago every so often. Millennium Park is proud to present the Champaign-Urbana rockers in their first show in Chicago in over a year. http://www.h-u-m.net/albums/index.php

The post-punk, experimental band Volcano! loves to play Chicago. Their performance as part of the Downtown Sound series will be their first hometown show of the summer, and will, no doubt, provide a sneak preview of their greatly anticipated new album, Insurance, expected to drop in early 2011. http://www.volcanoisaband.com
