Calexico, whose most recent Chicago show was Cultivate Festival in October, have been tapped by Death Cab For Cutie to open their Taste of Chicago show at the Petrillo Music Shell on July 12. Ticketing info is still forthcoming.

The Chipotle-organized Cultivate Festival is set to take place on October 1st, from 11AM - 7PM in Chicago's Lincoln Park. The 100% FREE festival's aim is to "bring together food, famers, chefs, though leaders, and musicians."
Featuring a Brewers Hall, Chefs Tent, Artisans Hall, Kids Area, and Music Stage, Cultivate has a bit to offer to everyone.
The somewhat-stacked musical lineup will feature: Calexico, Mayer Hawthorne, White Rabbits, The Rural Alberta Advantage, and last but not least The Cave Singers.
