Start it up

The miracles of nature who make up the Rolling Stones are shaking their retirement-age hips this weekend during two shows in Chicago. The band is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a mammoth (and expensive) tour. On the one hand, you have to wonder if this might be the last go-round for the legendary band, but on the other, haven't we been wondering that for decades? Mick and the boys show no signs of packing it in, and these shows promise to be full of energetic renditions of classics like "Satisfaction," "Honky Tonk Women" and "Wild Horses."

Honoring Chicago

Musicians from the Windy City's rock 'n' roll past will appear on stage this weekend to pay tribute to the music of Chicago -- both the city and the classic band that took its name. Danny Seraphine, co-founder and former drummer of the band Chicago, will perform with his current band, CTA (California Transit Authority). Also on hand will be 25 or 6 to 4, an acclaimed tribute band that meticulously re-creates the music of Chicago. Finally, former Chicago vocalist Bill Champlin and former Buckinghams vocalist Dennis Tufano will make special appearances.

8 p.m. Friday, May 31, at the Arcada Theatre, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles. Tickets start at $39. Go to oshows.com.

See the Trio

Alkaline Trio burst out of the suburb of McHenry in the mid-1990s with a punk-edged rock sound and became one of the key signifiers of the Chicago-area scene. The band released its ninth record, "My Shame is True," earlier this year to strong reviews. The band is performing this weekend at the Metro, part of that venerable rock club's 30th anniversary celebration.

9 p.m. Friday, May 31, at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St., Chicago. $31. Go to metrochicago.com.
