She&Him ... and Everyone Else in Chicago

One of the best things about Chicago in the summer is the opportunity to go to free music concerts. There are street fairs, radio-sponsored mid-day concerts, and various music series at my favorite venue, Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.

On Monday, as part of the Downtown Sounds series, the performers were She&Him. Well, She and Him and every other Chicagoan seemed to show up. I'd never seen the Pritzker Pavilion at standing-room only capacity. The crowd around us seemed to be generally well-behaved and the sound system did allow a great listening experience whether you were on the grass or off in the sidelines.

Welcome Summer!

Sounds like fun! It does look quite different than when I saw it in December.

Two summers ago there was a huge standing room only crowd to hear Vittorio Grigolo sing with the Grant Park Orchestra. The Director said it was the largest crowd ever.
