This just might be your kind of zoo.
The folks at Front Left productions are not fooling around when it comes to providing entertainment. Their event lasts from 1:00pm to 2:00 am for three days, July 3-5th.
It's close to Soldier Field for a quick visit before or after the show, or if you couldn't find your ticket, they'll be streaming all three nights on the big screen as well.
Entertainment is being provided by Stu Allen & Mars Hotel, but announced guests include Rob Borraco, Col Bruce Hampton, DJ Logic and Will Scarlett. But the main attraction just might be the venue. The Redmoon Theater specializes in the sort of immersive psychedelic inspired art and light experiences that are the perfect accompaniment to this sort of music.
They'll be aided by Stefan G, who has become known for his video, lights, and animations for Jerry Garcia Band, Furthur and more.
For an event of this magnitude, tickets are among the most reasonably priced of your many options over the weekend. Find out more HERE.
