Upcoming shows that should sell out, part 2

The next few months are going to get serious, folks. A lot of great acts are playing in this great city. Many have already sold out—Amos Lee, Mumford & Sons, and Umphree's McGee have sold out single shows at Lincoln Hall, while The xx have already sold out two at the venue. Some acts have been kind enough to add another date in Chicago, such as Passion Pit and Rogue Wave.

The list of shows to get your tickets to sooner-than-later is huge, so huge that I am breaking it up into two separate posts. To say all of these shows will sell out is ludicrous, but they will all be hot tickets, and better-safe-than-sorry and all that. This is for the bigger venues, either in size or prestige. And if you're wondering why you don't see a band like Vampire Weekend on here, it's because the tickets already sold out. If you're wondering how a band like Spoon hasn't already sold out the Aragon, well, that's a good question.
