April Shows in Chicago

I was kind enough to pen a quick listing of shows in Chicago for this month and I don't even live here anymore. You're welcome. I think concert season has officially begun again; see below for yourself. April will not be a letdown, unlike Juno (I finally just saw that movie. What a disappointing, overrated piece of crap that turned out to be.) Listings for the other cities coming soon.
