The Annual Hideout's Block Party has become the highly anticipated end of summer event. Up and coming bands and legendary performers, meet on the street and present break-out performances. Proceeds go to support P.L.A.Y., Tuesday's Child, and Literacy Works.

This year's festival will include; Eleventh Dream Day (Sat.4:00), Freakwater (Fri.8:45), and the premiere of Kevin O'Donnell's Ensemble General (Sat.3:00) all performing new material. A rare appearance of The Lamentations (Fri.7:30), and the Autumn Defense (Fri.7:00) with John Stirratt and Pat Sansone, both of Wilco, slipping in a special set. Bonus we believe Laurie Stirratt may perform too.

None of the bands performing are on tour. They are coming to Chicago for the express purpose to play at this event. The greatest anticipation is the reunion after 22 years of the influential New York pop-punk band, The dB's (Sat.6pm). Its four members, are all successful today in various bands.

Saturday will also include The Sam Roberts Band (Sat.5pm), the hugely successful Canadian band, in a rare stateside appearance.

Chicago's hottest new bands, The M's (Sat. 7:45), The Ponys (Sat. 7:00) and The Redwalls (Sat. 8:30) will return from their worldwide tours to rock the hometown crowd. NOMO (Sat. 9:15) here for Chicago's World Music Festival will play a once only show with Chicago's venerable Fred Anderson,a founding member of the AACM.

The Hideout is considered one of Chicago's best live music venues by Rolling Stone, Spin, Stuff, Fortune, The Tribune, The Sun-Times, The Reader, New City, Chicago Magazine, The Daily Herald, The Pioneer Press, WXRT, WLUW, WNUR, and others. The Hideout Block Party often makes the year end "Best of" lists. This year's line-up has already been called one of the best in years.

With the great critical and popular success of this years Intonation Festival, and Lollapalooza, come and see the festival that has helped to keep Chicago on the cutting edge musical map since 1996.
