Every Summer in Chicago we take to the streets, enjoying the sun and fun which is so brief in our wintry city. And a big part of that is great live music, often in our wonderful open air spaces. So, this week’s Beat Latino shares the music of Chicago’s Summer 2013! We have visitors from all around the globe, with tunes and grooves from Afro-Mexican son jarocho to Chicano Rock to Venezuelan psychedelic pop! Come spend some time with Chicago’s 2013  summertime tunes!
