Holy October, Batman

Posted by Bobby

I find myself a little panicked. There is so much going on in Chicago in October. I mean, really, it's a little ridiculous. Don't you hate feeling like you missed something? And isn't most of what is advertised to us intended to make us feel just that, like you're missing out? Something that helps me is seeing all of the options laid out in a nice, neat row. Below is list (a long list) of shows happening here in Chicago this month. It's in chronological order and I recommend each one. I'm going to get to as many of these as possible, so check back for show reviews. In the meantime, this is just a quick list of things I think you should be excited about. If I could, I'd give it to you written on a piece of loose leaf paper. Enjoy the fall and go see some music!
