This Week’s Summer Concerts

By Mike Fourcher | Wednesday, August 17, 2011

JT and The Clouds most recent album is Caledonia. From the band's website.

Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. is the last summer concert of the season at the Northcenter Town Square, 4100 N. Damen Ave. Tonight’s band, J.T. and The Clouds will play a set of their blues and folk inflected music before heading over to play at Shuba’s later in the evening. The Tribune said they play, “just plain beautiful music, beautifully played and presented with heart and soul.”

As has become his custom, Northcenter Chamber Exec. Dir. Garrett FitzGerald is promising a gourmet meal to early attendees. Tonight: Curry Goat and grilled plantains.

Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. Giddings Plaza, 4733 N. Lincoln Ave., will host some rockabilly music with the Possum Hollow Boys for the Lincoln Square Chamber’s summer concert series.

On Sunday night in Manor Park, 4626 N. Manor Ave., the Horner Park Advisory Council will host a double header with Bossa Tres’ Brazilian music at 5:00 p.m. and then the Midwest Young Artists at 7:00 p.m.

And we just have to preview this: Next Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in the Welles Park Gazebo will be Cobalt and the Hired Guns, a Chicago band that’s just dying to break through. Listen to their single, “You left your sweater,” and you’ll believe.

    Isn’t it amazing how many wonderful live music options are right here in the neighborhood in summertime? Thanks so much, CSJ, for rounding them up each week for us. Makes it near impossible to stay at home even one night a week!
