As usual, August begins with the tail end of Lollapalooza, where the Foo Fighters will close out the four-day Chicago summer music festival with some sure-to-be-massive sing-alongs. The assortment of concerts in Chicago only gets more interesting from there, with local venues begin hosting more shows as more touring acts begin hitting the road. This month, you can catch Patti Smith headlining the Out of Space festival in Evanston, Weezer (and Green Day and Fall Out Boy) at Wrigley Field, Chroemo DJing at Sound-Bar and Wilco joining Sleater-Kinney for a co-headling gig at Pritzker Pavilion. Plus, local acts like Liam Kazar, Ohmme, Whitney and Maco Sika return to venues throughout the city, while the Millennium Park Summer Music Series kicks off with a string of shows at Prtizker Pavilion! It's time to fill your calendar with some of the best concerts in Chicago in August.
