I'll be there (neighbor Oprah probably won't)

Seldom in life is one able to enjoy an experience as satisfying as rocking out while dining on local food and drinks in the summertime. Denizens of Chi City can do just that at next month's 12th Annual Taste of Randolph Street, in the trendy West Loop.

The three-day street fest has improved on last year's solid lineup (Mike Doughty, Drive-By Truckers, Delta Spirit) with headliners The Hold Steady, the increasingly Beach Boysesque Dr. Dog, DC's These United States, '90s hometown heroes Urge Overkill, and curiosity/supergroup (members of Smashing Pumpkins, Hanson, Cheap Trick, Fountains of Wayne) Tinted Windows.

Admission is a suggested donation of $10 to the West Loop Community Organization. Pretty sweet.

I'm pretty excited myself. Can't get enough live Hold Steady.
