September might be one of the biggest months for concerts in Chicago since 2019, thanks to a long list of summer music festivals, some stadium tours and plenty of shows at Chicago music venues. Thsi month you can head to Pitchfork Music Festival to see St. Vincent and Phoebe Bridgers, or swing by Riot Fest for nostalgic sets from the Smashing Pumpkins and Devo. Plus, the Hyde Park Jazz Fest returns with two days of outdoor concerts, Tame Impala headlines the United Center and the Empty Bottle puts together a tribute to the synth album Plantasia that takes place throughout the Garfield Park Conservatory.
