Overview

One of the legendary centers of the blues, Chicago even has its own blues subgenre, "Chicago blues." Unbeknownst to many, it is also the birthplace of house music (courtesy of legendary DJ Frankie Knuckles), a jazz mecca, and the home to a rich club scene and innumerable labels dedicated to everything from soul, hip hop, and gospel to Latino and indie rock. Like other guides in the highly regarded series, Waking Up in Chicago profiles the artists, clubs, labels, and locales on the cutting edge of the city's music scene. A map indicating music hot spots, recommendations on city sights and eating out, and travel and accommodation details help visitors make the most of their trip.
