It’s a trifecta of up-and-coming, nominated and award-winning artists!
Bring in the funk . . .
. . . for Grammy-nominated R&B artist (and BET reality-TV star) Keyshia Cole, who takes over the Chicago Theatre (175 N. State) at 8 tonight; $49.50-$88. (312) 559-1212.
Bring in the noise . . .
. . . for hip hop wizard Drake (who also played Jimmy Brooks on “Degrassi: The Next Generation”). He takes the stage at the House of Blues (329 N. Dearborn) for an 18-and-over show at 11:30 p.m. Tickets: $25-$50. (312) 559-1212.
Cue the irony . . .
. . . as Academy-Award winning comedian Steven Wright brings his lethargic, deadpan comedic stylings to the Vic Theatre (3145 N. Sheffield) at 8 p.m for an 18-and-over show. Tickets: $36. (312) 559-1212.
