Boz Scaggs -- the singer, songwriter and musician who delivered a number of soulful pop hits in the 1970s -- will make a stop in the suburbs this weekend. Scaggs has remained active since his commercial heyday, recording new material and touring extensively.
8 p.m. Friday, April 12, at the Arcada Theatre, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles. Tickets start at $59. Go to oshows.com.
Libertyville native Ike Reilly and his band, the Ike Reilly Assassination, are in the midst of a performance "residency" at Chicago's Schuba's Tavern. The band will play on Sunday and then three additional times this spring -- April 28, May 12 and May 26. The band is putting the finishing touches on its sixth full-length album, and fans will get previews of the new songs at all the Schuba's shows. This is a great chance to see a local favorite in one of Chicago's best rock venues.
8 p.m. Sunday, April 14, at Schuba's Tavern, 3159 N. Southport, Chicago. $10. Go to schubas.com.
That was fast
If you were planning to go to Lollapalooza this year, I hope you acted quickly. All three-day and single-day tickets for the massive Grant Park music festival are sold out; the single-day tickets went on sale April 3 and were gone within hours! All hope is not lost, though. If you want to make a vacation of it (and have deep pockets), travel packages that include three nights at a downtown hotel are still available, but they start at $1,599. Lollapalooza runs Aug 2-4, and this year's lineup includes major acts like the Cure and Mumford & Sons along with suburban-rooted groups like Wild Belle and the Orwells.
For more on the lineup, schedule and travel packages, go to lollapalooza.com.
