Where can we hear The Killers??

We are visiting Chicago in a couple of weeks and staying near the Magnificent Mile. It's a very specific question, but does anybody know where we are most likely to hear bands like The Killers being played? They are our favourite band (we wouldn't have met if it wasn't for them!) and it would really help to make the trip special. Thanks!

The killers played at lollapalooza last summer......and arnt on tour now, are you asking where to see bands who sound like them? Or to go to a bar that plays rock music?

Sorry, we don't mean live, we just mean bars or clubs that play indie rock music such as the killers!

For live music check out the Elbo Room, Martyrs, Double Door and Lincoln Hall.

check out who is playing at the empty bottle, schubas, the hideout, metro, beat kitchen, bottom lounge, reggies, abby pub, or even house of blue.

You'll be spending a bit of time going to the websites of each of the various venues. There are easier ways to search.

1) If it's more immediate to when you are visiting, you can check the entertainment calendars (Music) of the major news publications in the area: Chicago Tribune; Chicago Sun-Times; and/or The Chicago Reader (Chicago's free weekly) for who's appearing where.

2) If there is a more substantial amount of time yet before your visit, you can check the websites of the promoters. The largest independent promoter in the U.S. is based in Chicago: Jam Productions. You can also check Live Nation's (associated with Ticket Master) website and refine your search to Chicago.

3) I hope that you don't mind my mentioning this for the case of others: If there is a quite large amount of time before the visit (meaning months), you would again go to the entertainment sections of the various news sources. However, instead of checking the calendar, you would keep an eye on announcements of upcoming shows. This is particularly the case when you are looking at a major concert or event (such as Lollapalooza).

Again, we dont want to SEE the band playing live, just want to know of a bar or club that plays that sort of music via the sound system so we can hear them!

Understood, Charlotte. We are giving you the tools to do the proper research for LIVE bands.

Are you speaking of just DJ music?
