Summer has a tendency to slip by. Suddenly it’s late August, you never made it to the pool, you’re not tan, and you didn’t do half of the summer activities you dreamed about when it was snowing. Don’t let that happen to you! #SpartMyInterest is here to tell you about the most interesting things happening in the region, and Kelly got the low down on the upcoming Deutschtown Music Festival in the North Side, July 12-14. It’s a jam-packed festival weekend and is sure to leave you summer-satisfied.
