(My theme for the A-Z challenge is places, things and people around Chicago)
For V, I asked Tom to write the post on the Vic Theatre as he has seen about half a dozen shows there.
The Vic Theatre is located in the Lake View neighborhood of Chicago. Mainly used as a live music venue now, the theater was a live Vaudeville venue when it opened in 1912. The building has gone through some renovation over the years, but most of the original interior is still intact. With a capacity of 1300 and great acoustics and sight lines it makes for a nice intimate place to catch a band. Comic Jim Gaffigan and Indie rock band Wilco have recorded live DVDs there. Recent acts to play the Vic have included Courtney Love and The Black Crowes.
