Known to Chicagoans as the Vic, this larger-size club is easy to get to via train and hosts a variety of rock acts (we’ve seen everything from Sonic Youth to Julian Casablancas here). It has a good number of 18-and-older and all-ages shows. If you’re 21, be sure to also check out Brew and View, where movies are shown and the heckles from the audience are usually more entertaining than what’s onscreen.
