Chicago's snowballing new music scene won't let summer - the usual downtime for musicians - slow it down. Tonight is the premiere of Dusk Variations, a new series of four free contemporary music concerts at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park.

Tonight's concert, called ChicagoCentric, features a few of Chicago's best new music groups playing an eclectic program. We'll keep this short and sweet so you can make sure you can be downtown and armed with a bottle of wine by 6:30 p.m.

Weather forecast: Bananas! Clear and warm. Enjoy it while you can.
