Festing is Besting

by Nikki Hartel

Chicago has got to be one of the best cities to live in during the summer. Great weather, beaches, out door eating and drinking, and my favorite, street festivals. Attending summer festivals is a staple activity while living in Chicago. I attended Do-Division and saw this HAWT punk-rock band, Le Butcherettes. I also hit up Sausage Fest in Wrigleyville where I saw the lively Aussie electronic rockers, Art vs. Science. The food is pretty spectacular too.

I have always had a passion for live music. During undergrad, I headed a student organization called POP Entertainment where I booked shows at Michigan State University (MSU). I also worked at Meridian Entertainment Group where I helped organize and promote concerts. In addition to being heavily involved in the music scene, I devoted quite a bit of time working at MSU as a student fundraiser. I started as a telemarketer and was promoted several times to become the Promotions Manager. Nikki Hartel, aemm.mam@colum.edu
