If you like music, it's another good weekend to see great artists perform live in Chicago...
Buddy Guy is in town for his annual string of live shows at his South Loop club, Buddy Guy's Legends... if you've never seen this blues treasure perform live, you should! You'll laugh, sing along and dance, plus you'll see where all the guitar greats get their licks from! Buddy's in town through the month of January with different acts every show. Tonight's show (Saturday) is sold out, but you can catch him just about every other performance this month... get your tickets and info here.
Hip hop superstar Talib Kweli is performing at the West Loop's City Winery for one sold out show tonight (Saturday)... but the wait list is open if you want to try your luck! Check out show and venue info here.
If jazz is more your style, catch trumpeter Roy Hargrove and his quintet while he's at the legendary Jazz Showcase this weekend. Even if you don't know his name, you've probably heard the Grammy winner's work with Common, Erykah Badu and D'Angelo. He's playing two shows tonight (Saturday) and one late afternoon set on Sunday... tickets and info here.
Have fun... and don't you ever let me hear you say you don't have anything to do!
