Not only does Roscoe Village’s Beat Kitchen offer up $6 tickets for its family-friendly Sunday concerts, but it has that beer you love in stock. (Beat that, rest of the weekend plans!)
The place where you can get your banjo on with the best of ‘em is the exact same spot to experience some of the city’s coolest concerts with your offspring, Old Town School of Folk Music. (Don’t even pretend you’re doing it for the kids.)
Turns out that the best place for reading is also the best place for getting your rock n’ roll on. Many of Chicagoland’s public libraries feature live performances by beloved children’s artists, but Bolingbrook’s Fountaindale Public Library takes it up a notch—its 7,000-square-foot media center encourages budding musicians to immerse themselves in the creation of their own jams.
