Another performer has been revealed for the free, Pabst-sponsored Red, White and Blue Ribbon concert on July 4 outside of Burnhearts: Chicago's damn delightful indie-rock group Maps & Atlases, whose summertime guitar-pop recalls Vampire Weekend, sans all the quirks and artifice that could turn one off of Vampire Weekend. They'll join previously announced mega-headliner Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks on what's shaping up to be one of the summer's most anticipated shows.  

Update: And the rest of the performers are: Rock Central Plaza, the Tornoto indie-rock band that found temporary Internet acclaim with 2006's Are We Not Horses; Maritime and Kid Millions & DJ Deadbeat.

The event starts at one. Pabst Blue Ribbons are two bucks, and Classic Slice and HoneyPie will be selling snacks.


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
