We're pretty sure that winter is (finally) behind us, so why not celebrate the arrival of spring by having a meal at an an outdoor restaurant, taking a walk in one of Chicago's best parks and enjoying some live music. April is packed with worthwhile shows, including an evening with Spiritualized at the Vic, the return of singer-songwriter Neko Case and an over-the-top appearance from operatic rockers Muse at the United Center. Plus, local hip-hop phenom Ric Wilson headlines Bottom Lounge, folk legend Billy Bragg surveys his catalog at Lincoln Hall and the Misfits reunite (again) at Allstate Arena. You'll find all of these artists and more among April's best concerts in Chicago.
