Hum To Play Millennium Park On Memorial Day

Lookit those fresh faced boys! Hum, back n the day.
Hum made a LOT of noise down in Champaign back in the day. So much noise it eventually bled into Chicago and then across nationwide radio dials during the Alternative Rock explosion of the mid-'90s. Their sound was very "Champaign-Urbana; lots of heavy guitars, melodic vocals barely audible through the mix, and drums that sounded stadium-wide. They were pretty great and while their break-up a decade ago didn't exactly set tears a-flowin', they were missed.

They've gotten together for reunion gigs here and there, the most recent Chicago gigs were two shows at Double Door at the beginning of 2009, so their latest resurfacing to play a show at Millennium Park on Memorial Day isn't exactly shocking, but it is certainly welcome, especially since it will be outside, on a holiday, for free!
