This weekend is one that many of us having been waiting for all summer —the annual Hideout Block Party and Onion A.V. Fest. The fest runs Friday evening and all day Saturday outside of the famous Chicago venue, The Hideout.

This year's lineup includes such acts as The War on Drugs and Sylvan Esso. Death Cab for Cutie will be headlining the Block Party and the show will mark the last appearance the band will have in Chicago before guitarist, Chris Walla, leaves the band.

We only have a few more weeks until summer leaves us, take advantage of it while you can!
