Go to There: November 20 - 26

Tuesday, November 20th: James Iha at Schubas (8 PM, 21+, $15)
The former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist released Look to the Sky earlier this year, which seemingly flew under the radar. The singer / songwriter is growing out of Corgan's shadow, although not necessarily escaping a certain "90s" sound to the record.

Wednesday, November 21st: Soup and Bread Sandy Benefit at the Hideout (5 PM, more details here)
It’s back! The weekly series isn’t coming back proper til next year, but enjoy some local food for a good cause before whatever over-indulgent Blackout Wednesday plans you have.

Thursday, November 22nd: Hannibal Buress at Schubas (9 PM, 18+, $25)
Not much is happening tonight (duh), but Hannibal Buress is one seriously funny guy. He’s moved to NYC but seeing him a few weeks ago at Ace Bar proves he’s got nothing but love for his hometown.

Friday, November 23rd: Chance the Rapper at Metro (7 PM, AA, $9 adv / $12 dos)
We don’t always plug hip-hop on this site, so you know it’s something special when we do. Chance the Rapper is one of the youngest and freshest voices coming up in this city. His mixtape 10 Day is up for a free download here.

Saturday, November 24th: Turbo Fruits, White Mystery at Hideout (9 PM, 21+, $10)
Obviously Chicago’s got a great garage rock scene, with White Mystery at the helm. So why not pair them with one of the best to come out of Nashville’s equally volatile scene?

Sunday, November 25th: Windy City Rock/Rock For Kids Benefit at the Empty Bottle (6 PM, 21+, $5-15 suggested donation)
We have (well, Gene has) put together a stellar lineup for this one folks. You’ve read us gush over the Hecks, Rambos, and Tiny Fireflies, and we’re looking to get a great introduction to Panda Riot, We Repel Each Other, Shiloh and Massive Ego (former Snacks / Close Hits). Another fantastic evening, for a great cause.

Monday, November 26th: King Khan and the BBQ Show at the Empty Bottle (9:30 PM, 21+, $13)
If you don’t know anything about King Khan, then a live show is most definitely the place to start. Raucous and weird, the duo is back together; this is gonna give you an energetic kick to start off your week.
