Gozamos is super geeked to be a media sponsor for the Milwaukee Avenue Arts Festival this year. If you haven’t been to this northwest-side festival, you don’t know what you’re missing. Rather than go through a long list of words trying to convince you to come out and support, I’ll just leave you with the hefty fill of bands listed just for the festival concerts. This doesn’t include the incredible galleries and oodles of other chances for good old street fair fun. For full events, check out the website. Some of this year’s curated bands were hand picked from my new faves, the hotties over at Chicago Mixtape* so pay attention the asterisk.
