North Coast and Riot Fest dominated
the first half of Chicago's music calendar in September, but the latter half of
the month which bridges into October offers a fresh season's worth of treasures. At the end of Riot Fest
comes the last breath of summer: the air begins to nibble, though not yet bite,
driving local musicians and music-lovers into the comfort of cozy cafés,
underground bars, and other warm and intimate spaces.
