This small, neighborhood concert venue is a favorite for indie rock, country, and folk fans. In an intimate hall, with room for just 165 concert-goers, every single seat is a winner here, and acts fill the stage 7 nights a week, with tickets usually going for less than $20. Some are big names, like Train and Neko Case, while others have gotten discovered by Chicagoans here. The on-site restaurant, Harmony Grill, is packed before and after each show, serving up way better-than-average bar food and a solid Midwest-centric beer list.
