Rock band Chevelle will be hitting the stage Thursday, April 17th at House of Blues Chicago. Past musicians such as The Who, Al Green, and Pearl Jam have graced the same stage years ago. This standing room venue makes it easy to see your favorite artist for an affordable price, and at close proximity.
Chevelle has been promoting their new album with their most recent popular single, “Take Out the Gunman.” Due to their popularity the April 17th show will probably sell out, but lucky for you Chevelle will also be playing another show Friday, April 18th at House of Blues Chicago.

Ghostbusters actor Harold Ramis has died. He was 69 years old.
His death was caused by complications related to autoimmune inflammatory Vasculitis, a condition Ramis battled for four years.
Ramis died Monday morning in his Chicago-area home, his agency said.
He will be dearly missed.
For 40 years, Ramis was a leading figure in comedy. A veteran of the Second City troupe in his hometown of Chicago, he was a writer for "SCTV" and wrote or co-wrote the scripts for National Lampoon's Animal House (1978), Caddyshack (1980), Stripes (1981), Ghostbusters (1984), Groundhog Day (1993), and Analyze This (1999) .
Rest in Peace Harold Ramin.
Every year, the Grammys can always be counted on to be jam packed with some of the most spectacular performances and surprising award wins of the year, and 2014's show was nothing short of just that. This year, the 56th annual Grammy Awards proved to be a celebration of music past, present, and future, with host LL Cool J guiding the night through it's incredibly diverse music collaborations and dynamic performances. It was only right, then, for the Queen B herself, Beyonce, and music mogul husband Jay Z to start the show off right with a slick and sexy performance of 'Drunk In Love' that made sure everybody was going to "be all night."
