Exclusive: Taste of Chicago Bud Light Stage lineup

April 29, 2014|By Matt Pais | RedEye music editor

Janelle Monae and Jeff Tweedy aren’t the only worthwhile artists playing at the Taste of Chicago this summer.

Local favorites The Autumn Defense, Marrow and The Right Now will appear on the free-admission Bud Light Stage during the 34th annual festival (July 9-13 in Grant Park), the city’s department of cultural affairs and special events announced exclusively to RedEye. Other highlights include RedEye Rock ‘n’ Vote alums Pyro Fighter and Pet Lions, plus the winner of RedEye Rock ‘n’ Vote 2014 (to be determined May 22 at Lincoln Hall). This isn’t self-promotion, just telling it like it is. Mostly.

Check out the full schedule below. You didn’t need another reason to be excited for summer, but you got one anyway.
