Empty Out Your Wallet

2007_10_11_hallandoates.jpgWe hope you're ready to hop to it because this week's EOYW includes shows that have tickets going on sale within the next 24 hours. Get ready to spend some quality time sitting in the Ticketmaster queue.

You may tell your friends your love for this duo is just a guilty pleasure, but the music of Hall and Oates isn't merely ironic. Although this upcoming show is part of the Home for Christmas tour, in support of the recently re-released holiday album of the same name, we're pretty sure you'll hear some of your favorite hits as well. Just pray you're not standing next to the guy screaming, "play 'Rich Girl!'"
UIC Pavillion, November 30, 8 p.m., $37.50-$75, all ages. On sale Saturday.

It's never too early to make your fancy-pants NYE plans, and if you're dying to ring in the new year with Spoon, get your clicking finger ready.
Metro, December 31, 9 p.m., $76, 18+. On sale today at noon.

Kid Rock's new album is titled Rock n Roll Jesus. Yes, that's right. Kid Rock is a martyr for the rock. Whatever.
Aragon, November 10, 8 p.m., $40.50, all ages. On sale Saturday.

Bob Schneider: jam band guitarist to some, singer/songwriter genius to others. You make the call.
Schubas, December 4 & 5, 8 p.m., $20, 21+. On sale Saturday.
