* Robbie Fulks fills in for Tom Skilling, who will be in Austin.

* The Hideout holds a block party to raise money for the city to buy more salt.

* The Old Town School of Folk Music opens a pop-up school teaching drill in Naperville.

* R. Kelly headlines a panel on how disgusting he is.

* Billy Corgan plays an eight-hour show at his tea shop interpreting Highland Park's zoning ordinance.

* Jeff Tweedy hosts another fundraiser for Rahm Emanuel because the mayor "embodies all the best qualities of rock and roll, interpersonal communication and poetic living that I've always sung about."

* Chief Keef emerges from rehab, plays first show as $hief Keef.

* Jon Langford plays in 24 of his bands in 24 hours.

* Billy Corgan plays an eight-hour show at his tea shop interpreting his record contract.
