- Wow, what a great deal. The Wicker Park and Bucktown Chamber of Commerce sponsored the annual Wicker Park Fest. For an optional $5 donation, I got to see Man Man, The Thermals, and Prefuse 73. And if I had come earlier, I could have caught Maritime and Centro-Matic too. Oh well.
Man Man was fantastic. They played a frenetic and energetic set tonight. I came late, but they played several selections from 'Six Demon Bag'. "Black Mission Goggles" was a highlight.

I hadn't heard The Thermals before in concert. "Here's Your Future" and "Pillar of Salt" really rocked!
Unfortunately, they scheduled Prefuse 73 simultaneously on the South Stage while The Thermals were playing on the North Stage. Luckily, I was able to catch the end of their set, which was a very chill way to close out the early part of my Saturday night.
Maritime - Guns of Navarone
Centro-Matic - For New Starts
Man Man - Black Mission Goggles
The Thermals - A Pillar of Salt
