Frankie Knuckles Memorial on Michigan Avenue
In a summer that seemed to be defined by house music, the city’s tribute to house’s founding co-father Frankie Knuckles was the culmination of all celebrations. Just a free dance party in Millennium Park under the Bean where the whole city was invited and the whole city seemed to come. And as everything from Teddy Pendergrass’ “You Can’t Hide From Yourself” to Dennis Ferrer’s “Hey Hey” played in honor of the man that introduced so many to what their (our) lives would become, everybody just danced.
