A music fest that starts on a Thursday afternoon?

May 16, 2012|By Matt Pais | RedEye Sound Board

I'm all for lots and lots of music festivals in Chicago, and it's great to see Rock 'n' Vote 2012 finalists Kirby Kaiser (pictured) and Marina City increasing their profile. Still, a few questions about the just-announced Metropia Experience (June 7-8 at Ravenswood and Montrose):

-- How many people will attend an event that begins at 2 p.m. on a Thursday?

-- Isn't $110 a little steep for a two-day pass of bands very much still on the rise?

-- What makes this "Experience" different from any other fest experience?
