Yep, that's me, back at my old stomping grounds in Chi-ca-go! There are many things I love about my hometown, and one of them is the annual two-day block party/festival at the Hideout. I was back there again the first week of September. I had an awesome spot for my booth; it felt like I was right backstage, with a birds-eye view of Neko Case, Mavis Staples, Superchunk, the Hold Steady and a bunch of other rockin' bands. Jam and jammin' — it was the best of both of my worlds!
