chicago music venues, live and loud - the way it should be We love live music. And every morning we wake up in one of the greatest musical cities in the world. From funk to pop, indie rock to classical and everything in between (and we mean...everything), live music in Chicago is amazing. Feel the intimate vibe at The Metro, where indie and alternative bands rock out. Head to favorites like Lincoln Hall or Aragon Ballroom and catch acts like Green Day and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley. Or go where the ambiance is as inspiring as the music, like the Chicago or Riviera Theaters and The Vic.
