Saying goodbye
Local H, the acclaimed rock band that emerged from the Lake County suburbs in the mid-1990s, will perform this weekend in the city, the first Chicago date since drummer Brian St. Clair announced he will be leaving the band later this fall. St. Clair is joined in Local H by singer-guitarist Scott Lucas, and the duo is touring in the wake of its acclaimed album "Hallelujah! I'm a Bum," which came out late last year. Local H is known for scorching live shows, and given that this will be a "farewell" show of sorts for St. Clair, the intensity will likely be kicked up a notch.
7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at Metro, 3730 N. Clark St., Chicago. $15. Go to metrochicago.com.

From the heart
Jonny Lang, a blues singer and guitarist who has recorded with some of the biggest names in the business, will make a stop in the suburbs shortly before his new solo album, "Fight For My Soul," hits stores. (The release date is Sept. 17.) In addition to his own work, Lang has toured with Eric Clapton, Aerosmith, B.B. King and others.
8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Arcada Theater, 105 E. Main St., St. Charles. Tickets start at $39. Go to oshows.com.

Block party!
The annual Hideout Block Party has become a fantastic end-of-summer tradition. The music venue opens its grounds up to multiple bands over two days, then provides plenty of food, drink and children's activities to make it a family-friendly event. Partnering with the AV Club this year, the Hideout has secured an eclectic lineup that includes alt-country favorite Neko Case, indie-rock legends Superchunk, gospel/r&b singer Mavis Staples and many more. This is one of the city's best outdoor music events -- not too big and not too small, with a friendly, relaxed vibe. Check it out.
The Hideout Block Party runs Friday evening, Sept. 6, and all day Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia, Chicago. Tickets start at $35. Go to hideoutchicago.com for schedule and ticket information.
