Everyone loves a good music festival. Lollapalooza, Summerfest, Pitchfork, Walkarusa, Coachella – all great places to hear great music. The Music Box Theatre and WBEZ Chicago’s Sound Opinions have an indoor option for you that helps you avoid sunburn and heatstroke and will take you on a journey of music and film from the past 40+ years! The Third Annual Summer Music Festival will rock your face off.
Sound Opinions is co-presenting the 3rd annual Music Box Theatre Summer Music Film Festival from June 28-July 2, 2013. It’s five days and nights of great music movies, featuring everything from breakdancing (Wildstyle) to Detroit punk (A Band Called Death) to the most epic use of air guitar in cinematic history (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure). Join hosts Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot for the opening night kick-off on Friday June 28th. Following a reception from 6-7pm, Jim and Greg will introduce a screening of the highly-anticipated new documentary Ain’t in it for My Health, an intimate portrait of the late rock legend Levon Helm. Then hop on a train in 1970 with Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead and Buddy Guy in Festival Express.

It’s a party on Southport! Take public transit and say hello to our awesome MBT volunteers at the gates! Remember, if you are coming to the MBT you can say that when you enter and you won’t have to pay any entrance fee to get into Summer on Southport!
