Awesome, I'm coming in town for the marathon. Might be worth adding a day on the front end for this depending on the deets

I got a bunch of nice slim fit slacks from eddie bauer that will custom hem them to the 1/4" and also any waist size for <$50 a piece. Definitely would recommend.

Interesting. Was kinda hoping for a bit more diversity but I'm likely only going to UM anyway

I feel like UM would probably do 1 night at the brawl room then hit Madison. Or vice versa. Play Mad town then back to Chicago. Thoughts?

I would be interested in coming out for a UM/Spafford weekend.  Pretty close to Phish Halloween though and I'm strongly considering that.

My current predicament. Can't do both the Big Weekend UM shows and do Phish at Allstate as well. Decisions...

I just realized Phish Halloween conflicts with another trip I already had planned.  Back in the running for this.

Following the model of a city takeover, the Big Weekend offers fans the opportunity to attend one show, or several shows, throughout the weekend at the city’s finest live music venues.

**books shows at the Concord, Aragon, and Riv**

Why is this even an event? There's at least as much variety in the Chicago music scene every weekend. Is that the new thing, schedule a few concerts of similar bands on the same weekend and call it an event?
