The ninth season of Vans House Parties series at House of Vans Chicago (113 N Elizabeth St) kicked off last week with a bang when rapper Vince Staples took the stage. But coming up this Saturday, June 15, legendary alt rock band The Breeders will perform.
The Vans House Parties series will also continue its tradition with the headlining artist acting as a curator, hand-picking all supporting talent and will be creating a personalized visual art experience for fans. This year, that experience will be expanded to include interactive art takeovers, immersive installations, murals and more. Additionally, to support and elevate Vans’ commitment to emerging talent, one burgeoning musician will be chosen by the headliner to open each Vans House Party show.
Check out the schedule!

I’m actually kinda impressed…
Today marks the opening of the Field Museum Dig Site, a pop-up experience at 333 N. Michigan Avenue. The storefront has been transformed into a replica dig site, complete with casts of real dinosaur bones and the actual tools that Field Museum scientists use in their fieldwork.
“Since we can’t bring everybody in Chicago to a dinosaur dig site, we wanted to bring a dig site to them,” says Stacy Dilling, the museum’s Marketing and Advertising Director. “With this pop-up, we’re having a little fun and giving people a glimpse into the world of our scientists.”
Since the pop-up opened on April 1, the Field first announced it on Twitter as a real paleontological site; the first letter of each word in the press release spelled out “April Fools’ Day.” But while the bones aren’t real, Dilling notes that the pop-up’s message is.
The pop-up is free and open to the public every day from April 1 through June 30, from 11am to 7pm Monday-Saturday and 11am-6pm on Sundays. On weekends, Field Museum volunteers will be on hand to show visitors specimens from behind the scenes in the museum’s collections.
