Mad Decent Block Party Chicago (PHOTOS)

Nestled along a two-block stretch in the West Loop, Mad Decent Block Party made its Chicago debut to a rapturous reception.

Over capacity and gate crashing brought the party to a halt halfway through the day, but I did manage to catch a few DJ sets and lots of happy people who enjoyed the event before it was overwhelmed by the crowds.
