Milwaukee Pridefest has one of the best queer music line-ups in the country - I caught The Shondes, Nicole Reynolds, Ellis, Martine Locke, and Che Arthur . And that was just a taste of the amazing three-stage, three day event. Chicago Pridefest (coming up next weekend) does have the Joans, but then fills the stages with cover bands and straight dance artists. (although to be fair I must add that the three headliners at Milwaukee Pridefest were all straight).
