The Dust-Up, Chicago's newest music festival

While the summer is nearing an end, a new festival will extend it just a bit longer.

Wicker Park taco-and-booze haven Big Star, in conjunction with the Metro and Tecate, will launch its first annual music festival Sept. 8 called The Dust-Up.

The first installment of the annual concert series will feature Disappears, Andre Williams & The Goldstars, Old Baby, Quarter Mile Thunder and Chicago-Americana-blues group The Jeff Walroth Band.

These live musicians will take the stage beginning at 4 p.m., while DJs and a record fair will kick off the event at noon, including booths from Numero Group, Bloodshot and Kranky Records.

The Dust-Up will take place in Big Star's parking lot, at 1531 N. Damen Ave., and will be free to the public with beer available outside.

    Lure of $20,000 reward led to charges in cop killing, defense says

    Timothy Herring was a "coldblooded" executioner who killed a Chicago police officer and another man to avoid returning to prison, prosecutors told jurors Monday, but Herring's lawyer said her client was wrongly identified as the killer by people hungry for a $20,000 reward.
