Known for its better-than-average street-festival fare—the West Loop restaurants serving food this year include De Cero, Market, Veerasway, and One SixtyBlue—the Taste of Randolph Street also presents music on two stages at 900 W. Randolph, Fri-Sun 6/18-6/20. The festival's west stage (at Randolph and May) features mostly indie rock, including local and national acts like Lucero, One Eskimo, and Mucca Pazza on Saturday and Superchunk, Califone, and Headlights on Sunday. The bookings on the east stage (at Peoria) are more eclectic, with an emphasis on world-music fusion, and include locals Bandoleros, Funkadesi, and Lubriphonic, as well as a Saturday DJ set from Cheb i Sabbah. Local artists, boutiques, and other vendors (Tucker Pup's, Merit School of Music, Big City Swing) will also be on hand. Festival hours are 5-11 PM on Friday, 2-11 PM on Saturday, and 2-10 PM on Sunday. Admission is a $10 suggested donation. For more info, call 312-666-1991 or visit starevents.com or westloop.org.
