Time Out says

Haven't made it to a bonafide Chicago block party yet this year? You'll get your chance to celebrate in the streets at Goose Island's annual end-of-the-summer soirée on the pavement outside of its Fulton Street brewery. The 312 Block Party brings together a stacked lineup of performers, food truck fare and plenty of beer (for just $5 a pop)—and your $10 donation at the gate supports local charities. This year's lineup includes acts like includes garage punk rockers White Reaper, genre-bending Colombian group Bomba Estéreo and alt-folk band Deer Tick, among others. With so much great music and cheap beer on tap, the 312 Block Party usually fills up quickly, so we recommend arriving early (the fest's entrance is at Fulton St and Wolcott Ave) and have a few drinks while you wait for your favorite act to play.
