Around Town with Gabe Mendoza & DL Hopkins (North Coast Weekend)

North CoastThe unofficial end to summer goes out with a bang, and it’s not solely from the Labor Day weekend fireworks. Wu-Tang Clan performs its game-changing 36 Chambers album at North Coast Music Festival at Union Park. From hip hop to be bop—the Chicago Jazz Festival comes together at Millennium Park. Pack your wet napkins for the Windy City Barbecue Classic, a barbecue benefit festival at Soldier Field. Listen in to Vocalo’s senior hip hop correspondent Gabe Mendoza and co-host D.L. Hopkins on this week’s Around Town for the scoop on these goings ons and other top weekend picks (Events and links below).
