Howard board, superintendent in legal battle as they run county school system

Joe Pug at Wicker Park Fest

Sure, the singer-songwriter just packed up for new digs in Austin, Texas, but he's only been gone a few months -- so who's to say that the move is even permanent? Surely not anyone who has heard Pug's intimate new album, "The Great Despiser," which draws from Chicago's polemic folk tradition but skews it for a contemporary NPR audience. Pug'll rile you up then soothe you back down. July 29, Milwaukee Avenue from North to Paulina avenues. $5;
