5. Eminem & Rihanna at Lollapalooza on Friday night.

Guarino: "The singer was not on the bill, but they are scheduled to co-headline a short stadium tour this summer starting next week. On Friday, Rihanna sang the hooks on three songs: 'Love the Way You Lie,' 'The Monster' and 'Stan,' the 1999 hit that catapulted him to fame. She and the Detroit rapper didn't interact much during their mini-set - he bounded back and forth during her vocal interludes.

"Otherwise, Eminem presented a vintage oldies set, introduced with a video that updated the audience with his long-running (and now, quite moldy) narrative involving a stalker fan."

13. Oneida at the Empty Bottle on Wednesday night.

Loerzel: "[W]hat a joy it was to see these New York musicians playing in Chicago again, making their first appearance here in several years.

"Since the Krautrock-influenced group finished its epic 'Thank Your Parents' trilogy of albums, it has released two records: Absolute II in 2011 and A List of Burning Mountains in 2012 - instrumental recordings with long passages of quiet punctuated by jarring blasts of noise and percussion.

"Joined by James McNew of Yo La Tengo on bass, Oneida played some of that sort of stuff during its show last week, but it also delivered some of the Oneida pieces that more closely resemble actual songs - ending with one of its most lively, riveting numbers, the 2006 song 'Up With People.' Audience members pogoed to the insistent beat."
