September may signal the end of summer, but it's summer nonetheless—our favorite outdoor restaurants are still open and it's not chilly enough to don a winter coat just yet. It's your last chance to go to a summer music festival before the weather takes a turn for the frigid, so take advantage of long afternoons at Riot Fest, Chicago Jazz Festival, World Music Festival and Hyde Park Jazz Fest. If you're looking for big shows, you can catch hometown hero Chance the Rapper headlining the United Center, two "Good As Hell" performances from Lizzo at the Aragon Ballroom and folk singers the Avett Brothers at Northerly Island. Check out all of our favorite September concerts in Chicago.
