The Week In Chicago Rock

You shoulda been there.

1. Dan Navarro at SPACE in Evanston on Sunday night.


2. Twin Hits at the Beat Kitchen on Wednesday night.


3. Yoko and the Oh No's at the Beat Kitchen on Wednesday night.


4. Savage Sister at Subterranean on Sunday night.


5. Spoon at Lollapalooza on Saturday night.

A.V. Club: "One of the sadder experiences of my Lollapalooza was watching Spoon, not because the band didn't bring their all, but because the crowd was largely full of bored teens waiting for the old guys to finish their set so Calvin Harris could start spinning his shit. The portion of the crowd who cared about Spoon was maybe 40 percent of the total crowd, and that number kept getting smaller as more and more scantily clad young people in various degrees of culturally appropriative outfits pushed through the crowd to camp out near the Bud Light stage."


6. Cherry Glazerr at Beat Kitchen on Wednesday night.


7. Wooden Shjips at Millennium Park on Monday night.


8. Trombone Shorty at the Vic on Sunday night.


9. Culture Profetica at the Old Town School on Wednesday night.


10. Stooges Brass Band at City Winery on Wednesday night.


11. Tori Amos at the Chicago Theatre on Tuesday night.

Legaspi: "Straddling the bench between her Bösendorfer piano, a keyboard, and for several songs an organ, Tori Amos' tour stop at Chicago Theatre on Tuesday marked a return to early form. There was no backing band, no orchestra. It was simply she, her supple-to-defiant vocals and her music in a performance that was at turns intimate, vulnerable, intense and, for the most part, engrossing."
