Mobfest returns to 3 nights!

| June 22, 2011 | 0 Comments

Chicago’s annual artist-centric music fesvial, Mobfest, returns to its three-night format for 2011, but ends the barhopping schedule for a non-stop haul at the Hard Rock Hotel. And it begins Thursday the 23rd!

All the details are available at, though you might prepare yourself for the fact this is no longer the zillion-showcase crapshoot of yore. Thursday’s headliner is adored, smart-ass power-pop stars Fountains Of Wayne, supported by Anna Nalick and The Hounds Below, which features former Von Bondies frontman Jason Stollsteimer. Friday brings Heart-Set Self-Destruct, Amrita, and The Bright White, and things close on Saturday with Makeshift Prodigy and California Wives.

If this proves too dizzying a new order for you veterans, the panels are still held on Saturday, and can be viewed here as well.
