Dave Matthews Band
Theo Epstein and his lieutenants don’t look like baseball executives – more like luxury-box fans at a Dave Matthews concert – but their presence is about to bring an ironic turn to the north side.
Music along Chicago’s lakefront is nothing new–Lollapalooza has called Grant Park home for over five years–but this weekend it’s the Southeast Side that’s playing host to a concert fest.
A three-day music festival headlined by Dave Matthews Band will showcase a south lakefront area ripe for redevelopment. But neighbors wonder if the area can handle parking, traffic and crowds.
A long-vacant site on the South Lakefront will be the site of a concert by the Dave Matthews Band this summer, and eventually, a brand new city neighborhood.
