Here is another reason why we need to (via Chicago Magazine):
Quieter than the Green Mill and less touristy than Andy’s, this intimate South Loop venue is a haven for die-hards. The steep cover ($20) gets you up close with performers such as the Grammy-winning bassist Esperanza Spalding and the progressive New Orleans trumpeter Nicholas Payton.Speaking of live music that we love, Lollapalooza is apparently a very tough (and now expensive) ticket to get. Can anyone hook your favorite blog up with a ticket or two (FYI - this is our shameless attempt to not pay out the wazoo for tickets)?
