Snowmageddon! Snowpocalypse! Snotorious B.I.G.! SnOMG! But will the concert go on?

If you are a dedicated rock ‘n’ roller and will not be deterred from your pursuits by a little wisp of snow, here’s what we know about shows scheduled over the next few days, and I’ll update this post with any other related news:

The only rock show canceled thus far due to the blizzard, which is blowing in now, is the Buckcherry concert scheduled tonight at the Congress Theatre. The venue indicates the show will be rescheduled, and Congress PR says fans should hold onto their tickets for news of a new date.

The Jazz Showcase has canceled Wednesday night’s Billie Holiday tribute show with Joan Collaso.

[UPDATED 6:05 p.m.] Other promoters and venues we’ve checked with seem undaunted:

  • Shelby Lynne is still up for playing tonight at Evanston’s S.P.A.C.E. for those brave enough to venture out. If that changes, the venue will email ticketholders.
  • Chicago’s Scott Lucas & the Married Men and Danish singer-songwriter Tina Dico are still on at Schubas, tonight and Thursday respectively.
  • Sallah tonight and Ode tomorrow at the Empty Bottle, still on.
  • Tonight’s Mar Caribe show at the Hideout is canceled (they’ll be back March 1) as well as tomorrow night’s Soup and Bread event, but the rest of the week’s slate is still on.
  • As far as we know, the farewell tour stop by New Orleans mainstays the Radiators is still on Thursday-Saturday at FitzGerald’s in Berwyn.

By Thursday and especially Friday, things get cooking, with Yo La Tengo, the Decemberists, Poi Dog Pondering and more, but by then we’ll all be wondering what all this fuss was about, right?

Keep an eye on things here throughout tonight and tomorrow. And here’s a list of other closures ’round town.
