RODRIGO Y GABRIELA
It’s worth springing for seats near the stage to fully appreciate this adroit guitar duo, whose rapid-fire flamenco strumming would resemble a hummingbird’s flight pattern—if hummingbirds knew how to rock.
4/12 The Mexican duo takes a brilliant left turn here, performing with CUBA, a large Havana-based ensemble. The result is a hot dish of Latin jazz piano, tumultuous rhythms, and blazing horn fanfares. At 7:30. Sold out. Chicago Theatre, 175 N State. ticketmaster.com.
