It's almost a wrap on 2019, but some of the best concerts in Chicago take place on the final evening of the year. If don't feel like spending the night at New Year's Eve parties but can't imagine staying in, you can always head to Chicago's best music venues to ring in 2020 at a New Year's Eve concert. This year, stoner-metal act Sleep brings sludgy riffs to Thalia Hall, party animal Andrew W.K. headlines the Concord Music Hall and a stacked lineup of DJs gets behind the decks at Smart Bar. Find the best year-end rock, hip-hop and electronic shows with our guide to the Chicago New Year's Eve concert lineup.
