'Security' check
The Security Project, a group consisting of former members of Peter Gabriel's band and King Crimson, will stop in the suburbs this weekend. The band features Jerry Marotta, Josh Gleason and Larry Fast, all former Gabriel backers, as well as Trey Gunn of King Crimson. They'll be exploring many of the songs from Gabriel's adventurous 1982 record "Security," which included the hit "Shock the Monkey." The band will also perform other material, including other Gabriel songs.
8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8, at the Arcada Theater, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles. Tickets start at $29. Go to

Local Taxi
Suburban pop-punk band AM Taxi will perform this weekend in the city. AM Taxi includes Adam Krier and Jason Schultejann, both former members of DuPage County band Lucky Boys Confusion. The band is making a name for itself with a driving sound and energetic stage presence.
9 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at Subterranean, 2011 W. North Ave., Chicago. The Kickback, Chasing Mars and Dan Wade are also on the bill. $12. Go to


New pop queen
For years, the pop music world has looked for a successor to Madonna -- someone just as smart, provocative, sexy and enduring. Enter Lady Gaga. More creative and daring than Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and even Beyoncé, Lady Gaga seems to be headed for a Madonna-like career. She adds touches of disco, electronic music and rock to her state-of-the-art dance pop. Her videos are surreal and flamboyant. Her lyrics touch on themes of personal and sexual liberation. (She's been particularly outspoken on the subject of gay rights.) Time will tell if Lady Gaga can match Madonna's staying power, but at this point, it looks like a good bet. She brings her "Born This Way Ball" to Chicago for two nights next week.
7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, and Thursday, Feb. 14, at the United Center, 1901 W. Madison St., Chicago. Tickets start at $49.50. Go to
