Homegrown Arts & Music Festival founder Aaron Williams has found a way to work within health guidelines to bring the annual fest to life again — both in person and streaming around the world.
The Chicago-area favorites Mungion bring the jams to a drive-in show; the Arcada Theatre streams a performance by Ann Wilson of Heart; the ’90s live again at BaseCamp’s 90’s Palooza; Bolingbrook Jubilee puts tunes on stage; and Gerald Dowd livestreams from The Venue in Aurora.
Tom Higgenson of the Plain White T’s and exotic cars await as BrauerHouse pulls out all the stops (socially distancing, of course) to celebrate the Fourth of July this week. Check out that and many other suburban musical events.
Some of the summer’s big music festivals have officially been called off, but suburban patios are open for live performances.
