I hope everyone’s ready to party in Pilsen tomorrow! This all-ages fest is going to feature a lot of workshops and live performances from rad bands. Bring your $15 down to Chitown Futbol at 2255 S Throop St (yes, it’s an indoor soccer facility that regularly hosts punk fests) and support the community.

Grosse Pointe, Supermagical This kegger house show promises a HELLO KITTY MOON BOUNCE. Seriously. If “kegs of beer” and “Hello Kitty moon bounce” aren’t enough for you: we have absolutely nothing in common. All the same, hopefully performances by garage punks Grosse Pointe and The Band Formerly Known as White Gold (who recently had a run-in with a band with the same name, hence the moniker switch) are enough to sweeten the deal for your miserable, fun-hating heart. Bring $5 for a bottomless solo cup and don’t puke in the moon bounce, jerk.
