This Week in Great Music: 8/9 – 8/15

After three days of Lollapalooza, I kind of don’t want to think about music right now. Fortunately for those of us who are sort of burnt out at the moment, there’s not a lot going on. I’ll be at the Rufus Wainwright show on Friday. I’m not in love with his new album, but as a Rufus (and Martha) fangirl, I’ll go to the concert all the same.

Tweet I suppose the holiday weekend makes for a slow concert week.  The most exciting stuff is happening over at the Taste of Chicago, really.  On Saturday, I’ll be heading to a super-secret location for a teeny-tiny show by Rocky Votolato, who is doing a series of living room concerts…

Saturday also has some strong line-ups of local bands, both at Bottom Lounge and at the Beat Kitchen.
