RONNIE BAKER BROOKS

2/13 at 8 This Chicago blues guitarist (and son of elder bluesman Lonnie Brooks) was reared on Buddy Guy, Muddy Waters, and B.B. King. Brooks’s style skews a bit noisier (more Hendrix than Hooker), but the blues-in-blood influence is hard to miss. $15–$35. SPACE, 1245 Chicago, Evanston. ticketweb.com

CORKY SIEGEL’S CHAMBER BLUES

2/6 at 8 Founded by Siegel-Schwall frontman Corky Siegel in 1987, Chamber Blues is exactly what it sounds like: a classically trained string ensemble playing 12-bar standards behind Corky Siegel’s famed harmonica. Because who said blues was only for guitarists? $20–$40. SPACE, 1245 Chicago, Evanston. ticketweb.com

 

ANDERSON EAST

2/21 at 8 This soul-by-way-of-country singer has spent his short career skirting the line between Nashville’s blues and honky-tonk scenes, but his major label debut LP, Delilah, is decidedly indebted to the former. $10. SPACE, 1245 Chicago, Evanston. ticketweb.com
