Last Second Plans: Kid Sister At Millennium Park

By Marcus Gilmer in Arts & Entertainment on Jul 19, 2010 8:20PM

If you have any energy left after this year's hot Pitchfork Music Fest, and especially if you skipped out for other fun, there's still a little bit of musical awesome leftover to help you further ease into the week. That awesome is none other than Chicago's own Kid Sister, back in town for the performance at the Pritzker Pavilion, part of the City's ongoing Downtown Sound series. Joining the charming (yeah, we're swooning, stop looking) Kid Sis is Congolese band Konono N°1 who will have the kids dancing with their unique world-beat brand of electronic folk. One note: for whatever reason, the city has noted that for this specific show: "Alcohol, glass bottles and metal cans will not be allowed into the Jay Pritzker Pavilion seating bowl or Great Lawn for the Kid Sister + Konono N°1 concert. Bags, coolers and packages will be screened." So be warned. Given the overcast skies and (slightly) cooler temps than the weekend, it should be a great night for some fun music.

Kid Sister + Konono N°1, TONIGHT, 6:30 p.m., Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park, FREE
