Way to go Chicago. Now that the Sun-Times is on the case, and it makes the second page of the Sunday morning paper, what kind of concert venue is going to put their neck on the line and host hip-hop concerts in Chicago? I’m hoping our days aren’t numbered, but what kind of incentive would a respectable venue have to do these events if all they get is bad press and people are scared to come out in fear of getting shot in the ass?

A 21-year-old man was shot in the buttocks outside the downtown House of Blues after a hip-hop show.
That shooting happened just before 4 a.m., as more than 1,000 people were leaving the concert venue at 329 N. Dearborn. A show by hip-hop acts Drake and Sly Polaroid began at 11:30 p.m. Friday.
The victim was involved in an “altercation” with someone who displayed a handgun, then shot the man and fled, said Chicago Police spokesman John Mirabelli. The victim, who was not identified, was listed in stable condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Detectives are investigating the case, and no one was in custody as of Saturday evening, police said.
