Here are his other picks for next week:
• Josh Groban returns to Chicago on Sunday. The singer, impressed with the Apollo Chorus after his summer show at Ravinia, invited the choir to join him again. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.
On Friday at the Vic, power pop band Fountains of Wayne make a Chicago stop in support of their latest album “Sky Full of Holes.”
Margaret Cho brings her latest standup show “Mother” to the Chicago Theatre Saturday night. No word if she’ll ride her motorcycle to the gig.
