We’re not quite to the end of 2014, but my concert calendar is empty and I don’t plan on hitting any more shows. It’s been a great year, with lots of big acts making their way through Chicago. Some smaller acts make the list as well, but in my mind they should be way more popular so consider this a heads up: If you aren’t already listening to them, you should be.
Side note: Four of these videos were shot by me, and one features me for a brief moment. Can you guess which ones are which?
