A man and woman were stabbed at a punk concert Tuesday night at Northerly Island.

A 34-year-old woman and a 29-year-old man got into an argument with another male about 9:30 p.m. at a bar inside Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island, Chicago Police said.

The argument spilled into the venue, where the male pulled a knife and stabbed the man in the neck and face, police said. The woman suffered a cut to her abdomen. They were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where their conditions stabilized.

The male was taken into custody and charges were pending, police said. A knife was recovered.

The Dropkick Murphys and Rancid were playing a show at the venue, according to their websites.
