In other news, the annual Chicago Bluegrass & Blues Festival at the Congress Theater celebrates its third year by expanding into a three-day event and hosting shows at Double Door and Lincoln Hall. Only a few acts have been confirmed thus far, including headliners Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals. I can only assume that some bluegrass and/or blues will appear in the lineup at some point.
Highlights this week also include Raekwon at the Logan Square Auditorium, Vincent Gallo's Rriiccee at Lincoln Hall, Mavis Staples at Park West, and a New Year's Eve show with Yeasayer and Health at Metro.
