Saturday the 18th in Chicago, where to go?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Dave Grossman, Jun 16, 2005.


  1. I moved to California from the Chicago area in 1998. I'm going back to visit for the weekend and I want to check out a show Saturday night. I'm not sure what clubs are around anymore and what kind of music they have.

    Anybody have a gig in Chicago on Saturday? Or, other recommendations as to where to go? I like all kinds of music. (er, almost all) (well, some)

    Thanks,

    Dave

    My two favorite Chicago clubs are Buddy Guys blues club and Jazz Showcase and excellent smoke free jazz club that usually has some great acts. Enjoy, it's a fun town.

    I'll be at the backroom, a jazz club at oak and rush street (1007 n.rush) with a band called systems 7 playing a mix of jazz and R&B 9-1:30.it's a little $$$$ and a little smokey but it should be a fun gig

    Hmm, check out www.metromix.com They have all the venues, shows listed in Chicago and then some. Don't forget to check out Navy Pier just for fun.

    Hey Dave,

    Taste of Randolph Street Festival is going on this weekend. My Morning Jacket is playing there on the 18th. Chicago's summer street fests are a ton of fun.

    I'd say come to my gig on Saturday, but it's a private party for 500 bikers.

    Unless you bring your leathers, then you could probably sneak in :bag:
