One of our favorite performances last year was at the Edgewater Arts Festival. We’re happy to report we’ll be returning to their stage again this year! They have an excellent lineup of artists and musicians, and it should be fun. Check it out!

The ChickenFat crew loves playing summer festivals. We had a tremendous time a few weeks ago at the Glenwood Ave Arts Festival, and we’re excited to be playing two more before summer is over: the Lakeview East Festival of the Arts and the Edgewater Arts Festival. Both festivals have tons of great bands, plus you get to support local visual artists!
