Get your blankets and picnic baskets ready: Chill on the Hill is gearing up for the Great Milwaukee Summer, revealing its schedule and lineup of music acts for 2022.

Hosted on Tuesday nights throughout the summer in Humboldt Park, the beloved Bay View live free music series brings in an impressive lineup of local music acts to its bandshell, ranging as usual across all sorts of genres – from rock to R&B, local staples to up-and-comers. A plethora of food trucks and beverage options also surround the neighborhood hangout, which returned to the stage last summer after having to cancel its 2020 plans due to COVID-19.

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
