What began as a scrappy punk festival in 2005 has now expanded to three days of music, carnival rides and more in Humboldt Park, headlined this year by Rise Against, Weezer, The National, The Cure and others.

    Weekend's best bet: Where's the Band? Tour at the Ottobar
    During pop-punk's heyday (late '90s/early '00s), part of the fun of being a fan was hearing tour announcements. You'd hope the stars might align to get, say, Hot Rod Circuit, Alkaline Trio and Dashboard Confessional on the same bill (Vagrant Across...
