Around Town with Gabe & DL Hopkins (July 4, 2013 Week & Weekend)

On this week’s Around Town show, Vocalo’s Senior Hip Hop Correspondent Gabe Mendoza and D.L. Hopkins give you the deets on where to find racks on racks on racks (of ribs that is). The Naperville Ribfest and the Windy City Ribfest in Uptown are two of the many events taking place this Fourth of July weekend.

Save room for Belizean cuisine, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, reggae and more at the African Caribbean Festival of Life at Union Park. Move your body to house music at the Chosen Few Old School Reunion Picnic in Jackson Park. Electronic music fanatics, head to the Wavefront Music Festival at Montrose Beach. Be advised: Leave the pyrotechnics to the professionals and watch the Fourth of July Fireworks display at Navy Pier.

Tune in for more information including details on where to watch live performances by hip hop turntablist Kid Capri, rappers Fabolous and Young Jeezy, and Chicago’s own DJ Timbuck2 and emerging soul vocalist Lili K.
