Labor Day weekend is a time when friends and families gather for one last hoorah to end the summer before a combination work, school, and winter weather take over our minds. For the last  two years, the good people at React have flexed their might in and supplied Chicago with a proper way to bring an end to summer time fun. If Spring Awakening was the kick-off, then North Coast Music Festival is surely the last hoorah as the 3rd annual event happens once again Union Park. If 3 days of live music with some of the best bands/dj’s in the world, late night after shows at the Crème de la Crème of this cities music venues, and having a mandatory (for some of us) recovery day is how you’d like to go out for the  summer 2012, then grab your pass/ticket now and lets celebrate Summers Last Stand!
