And for what it's worth, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, New Kids On The Block, One Direction and 98 Degrees were in town last week, as well as all the acts who played Taste of Chicago, including Robert Plant, and the AmericanaramA tour featuring Bob Dylan, Wilco, My Morning Jacket and Richard Thompson hit town, and there are the usual neighborhood festivals and, still, any show you can see in a local club is probably better than them all. Just sayin', huge musical summer.
