September Shows In Chicago

It's really hard to find a good website that details all of the worthwhile shows going on in Chicago and I usually just scramble from one venue site to another. Well those days are over (at least for you). I've detailed below a lot of the shows that will be turning up in September. It's not as unbelievable as October is looking....nearly a good show every night with an encore of Art Brut and the Hold Steady at the Metro on Halloween (I'm thinking a Franz Nikolay costume could be pretty great). Still, September is looking good.....seems a lot of bands want to hit the city before the weather goes south. So here you go:

Alex said...

Agreed. And it's a sad sad shame Mystery Jets and Jamie T are no longer touring together. And thanks for the heads up on the Jamie T show at Schubas, not sure how I missed it.

Hey, awesome for you to do this-I will have to check you out more often. Would love to see The Cure. Have seen Beastie Boys (opened for Madonna in '85 or so)... sooo old I am!

Anyway, Thanks!
