Continental Festival Gets Name, Line-Up

2007_05_continental_dj.jpgWe mentioned The Continental was putting together a little festival to give back to the community it calls home, and now we've got what seems to be a pretty full line-up along with a name for the event. Lots of Chicagoist favorites (a few who have even played showcases Chicagoist has organized in the past) dot the Switchyard Festival bill and it seems to be a pretty solid, locally based line-up. We're looking forward to this one! (Full disclosure, this writer DJs at The Continental, and one of the bands includes a Chicagoist writer, but we think everyone can agree that the line-up below has a little something for everyone!)
