One of my favorite places is The Back Room for Jazz.

They just opened their new place at 937 N. Rush St.. They feature live music 7 nights a week. I posted a link to their Facebook page below which gives you all of their upcoming events.

Mayne Stage is an excellent venue for live music and entertainments... great food and drink too!. Coincidentally, am headed there tonight to see a live production of Rocky Horror Picture Show at midnight.

Metro Mix is a great resource for Chicago nightlife and entertainment. If you ever want up-to-date information about upcoming events then check them out. Red Eye also offers great insight on entertainment in Chicago.

Chicago is really one of the best live music cities around. There are many live music venues all over the city. One of my favorite is a great place in Wicker Park called Subterranean (http://subt.net). It has very good site lines and acoustics with a diverse music line up. I hope you like it!

Good afternoon Sweetaj,

Not going to throw a bunch of crap at your wall. What type of music do you like? I myself see a lot of live music of all types and am happy to help. Let me know.

Lots and lots to do, see and hear in Rogers Park. We have more than 10 live theater locations, Music at the Mayne Stage on Morse, Heartland, Dukes Bar(http://www.facebook.com/pages/Chicago-IL/Dukes-Bar/156207381065764), No Exit all on Glenwood, just to name a few. You will want to subscribe to the Rogers Park Happenings at info@rogers-park.com and the 49th ward news letter at http://www.ward49.com/. Both very informative.

Just across the border in Edgewater there is live music at Uncommon Ground where there is music almost every night. http://www.uncommonground.com/pages/calendar/52.php.

Evanston's Space, http://www.evanstonspace.com has nightly music and many discounts at http://www.goldstar.com/events/evanston-il/live-music-at-spa… Don't miss the food at the Union Pizzeria (way more than pizza).

That should get you started.
