If the Pitchfork Music Festival lineup doesn't satisfy your hunger for extended instrumental arrangements and spontaneous improvisation, perhaps three nights with jam band titans Phish will do the trick. Fronted by Trey Anastasio (who acted as frontman of the Grateful Dead during the group's Fare Thee Well concerts at Soldier Field), the Vermont group's concerts are typically a potent cocktail of guitar solos and thick clouds of pot smoke. While the hipsters are in Union Park swaying to LCD Soundsystem, the hippies will be taking over Northerly Island.
