A rescheduled Morrissey: After tending to his ailing mother in October, Morrissey finally makes up for his missed show that's essentially slated to be a career retrospective. But even without new material, Moz is a force to be reckoned with, from his pioneering days fronting indie icons The Smiths through an illustrious solo career that soared to even higher heights in the mid-2000s following his return from reclusiveness. Saturday, January 26 at Chicago Theatre:

Lucinda Williams Lucinda Williams Lucinda Williams Lucinda Williams Lucinda Williams

Lucinda stripped down: Normally Lucinda Williams can be seen at spacious theatres or even alternative country-leaning festivals, so it's a true treat to see her in the intimate confines of City Winery. In keeping with the cozy feel of the venue, the guitar slinger strips down her sound with tunes off 2011's masterpiece "Blessed," plus plenty from the 1998 breakthrough "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road." Sunday, January 27 and Monday, January 28 at City Winery:

Sixpence None The Richer Sixpence None The Richer Sixpence None The Richer Sixpence None The Richer Sixpence None The Richer

Sixpence at Space: Throughout the 1990s, Sixpence None The Richer steadily ascended the indie rock ranks before finally exploding with the smash single "Kiss Me." After a handful of other hits, the group called it quits at the height of fame, but has since reunited for a tour and the new album "Lost In Transition," which marks its first all new long player in ten years. Sunday, January 27 at Space:

Music sounds better when you're lounging on a Comfy Supersac!
