You know festival season is about to hit full swing when Do Division Street Fest arrives. Spanning Division Street between Damen and Leavitt, this start-of-summer staple, now in its tenth year, hosts two stages of live music over its three days. As usual the Empty Bottle books the east-side stage, and it’s a stacked bill, with plenty of far-out sounds: sets come from funky hip-hop DJ Peanut Butter Wolf, harsh New York new wavers A Place to Bury Strangers, noise-metal duo the Body, and indie rockers Beach Fossils. Subterranean once again programs the west-end stage, with a lineup that includes country singer Nikki Lane, Minneapolis-based indie hip-hop collective Doomtree, jazzy electronic project Bad Bad Not Good, and indie-folk outsiders Fruit Bats. Plenty of local music is represented as well, with the likes of Ne-Hi, Bloodiest, ShowYouSuck, Lifted Bells, and Al Scorch appearing throughout the weekend. The festival includes a load of beer and food, plus arts and crafts vendors and the requisite Family Fun Fest, which hosts kid-friendly activities like face painting, pony rides, and children’s music.
