Re: “Bash on Wabash

Sponsored by the Greater South Loop Association, the fifth annual Bash on Wabash runs this Saturday and Sunday on Wabash between 13th and 14th. The festival hosts two days of rock, soul, alt-country, and blues music, and in addition to the usual arts-and-crafts booths and local food vendors there will be a kids' area with games, rides, and a climbing wall. The $5 requested gate donation will benefit the Guild for the Blind, Columbia College, and the GSLA. For more info call 773-868-3010 or visit chicagoevents.com.

Re: “Chicago Jazz Festival

The 20th and 25th birthdays of the Chicago Jazz Festival passed without much hoopla, but for its 30th the Jazz Institute of Chicago has assembled the strongest fest lineup in many years, bookended by sets from two of the last bona fide living legends in jazz, Sonny Rollins and Ornette Coleman. The festival has also commissioned new work from no fewer than four important envelope-pushing artists—trumpeter Dave Douglas, pianist Vijay Iyer, bandleader Gerald Wilson, and trombonist T.S. Galloway—and Galloway's piece, an homage to educator Walter Dyett, is a welcome change from the festival's usual ad hoc tribute bands.
