CHICAGO — A.V. Fest/Hideout Block Party is offering free admission and beer to volunteers who don't mind guarding a recycling bin for a few hours.
The Bucktown music fest, sponsored by the Hideout and The Onion's A.V. Club, takes place Sept. 6 and 7 and features Young the Giant, Neko Case and Mavis Staples.
Volunteers are needed to man recycling stations, which are sponsored by The 606 and Bloomingdale Trail. Volunteers "will assist attendees in using the recycling bins properly," in exchange for free admission to both days of the fest (worth $70) and two beer tickets.
Some shifts are already filled, but volunteers can still sign up for 7 to 10 p.m. Sept. 6 and 6 to 9 p.m. Sept. 7.
Also playing at the block party is The Hold Steady, The Walkmen, Trampled by Turtles, SuperChunk, The Both (Aimee Mann and Ted Leo), Jon Langford, Girls Group, Guitarkestra, and Nude Beach.
