Saw this on NextDoor just now, happening on the 19th:
Join us at Gompers Park for a FREE night out of live Latin music and dancing from 5:30pm to 7:00pm. Bring the whole family - and a picnic, too!

The Gompers Park Advisory Council will offer a musical instrument craft for the children to make and take home. Don't miss this special night out in our unique, urban oasis - Gompers Park! 
According to the Chicago Park District website, the band playing will be the all-female Puerto Rican ensemble Las BomPleneras.  Their Facebook page is here, and if that doesn't excite the feminist in you, check out this YouTube video of their performance from Old Town Folk and Roots Music Festival in 2011.
