JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound
JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound have been making a splash all year, getting the thumbs up for their cover of Wilco's "I Am Trying to Break Your Heart," making the summer festival circuit and opening for Mavis Staples. So why not close out the year with their punk-tinged soul?
Why go: We can't get enough of Uptown Sound's "Want More," the band's Bloodshot Records debut, a funky garage rock party.
Reconsider: You're going to wait and see after this breakout year.
9 p.m. at Mayne Stage, 1328 W. Morse Ave.; $45 (18+); 866-468-3401, ticketweb.com
