Kids 12 And Under Now FREE at North Coast Music Festival
Du-Jay, Sagezilla and our friend, Judah, hangin' at North Coast 2010 with Mat (AKA: Shreddy Shirt Boy)
Woo hoo! Our friends at North Coast listened to our pleas and have again raised their free kids policy to 12 and under, up from under 10!! Now all your under 13 punk kin are free with a paid adult admission.
Kids are expensive little monkeys as it is, so if you just blew your paycheck on back to school necessities, save that babysitter cash and bring 'em along for summer's last stand. Now families can walk together and rock together for 3 days of world class music, and save that xtra cash for the excellent food and merch. We can't wait to come out and play this weekend, and will be there to cover all 3 days this year.
Check in all week as we gear up for North Coast Music Festival #2--a music filled weekend, 2nd to none. Last night we interviewed the band, Great Divide, and we'll be running that video this week, and a big photo recap from the pit at their House of Blues show earlier this summer. They're movin' on up. Last year they played North Coast's local stage, but they're stoked to be back with a main stage spot this time around, Sunday at 1:30pm.
We also have aphoto filled feature on Rubblebucket and a huge recap from the first year of North Coast,brimming with pit photos from Friday's excellent line up, and a whole cast of crowd characters.
Play along with Chi-Town's own rock fest where's Waldo game, Spot Shreddy Shirt Boy. Click HERE for the details. We've recently spotted Shreddy Shirt Boy at Lollapalooza, The Folk and Roots Fest and Summer Camp Music Festival. How 'bout you? Send us your phone videos or stills of your Shreddy Shirt Boy spotting and be entered to win your own copy of the following DVDs: The Jesus Lizard Club, Live From Tokyo (a documentary about Underground Music), and Iggy and The Stooges "Raw Power Live".
You rock North Coast! ChiIL Mama highly recommends you for your sweet line up and your family friendly policies.
