This Week in Great Music: 3/19 – 3/25

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got a busy week this week.  As you read this, I’ll be in Nashville for a romp through the historic Ryman Theatre, but when I return to Chicago, I hit the ground running with shows for most of the rest of the week: Milk Carton Kids on Tuesday, Megafaun on Wednesday, and a road trip up to Milwaukee on Saturday for more Andrew Bird.  It’s almost like Christmas!
