Today is a day for grilling, Arrested Development, and rest. But of course, Chicago’s live-music scene never sleeps. That’s why you have Soundboard.

Tonight, French technical death-metal group Gorod takes over Reggie’s Rock Club. Anti-Flag brings its activist punk to Beat Kitchen with openers Swellers, Worship This!, and Hostage Calm. And those looking for a more traditional Memorial Day experience can take in some complimentary barbecue and Virtue Cider at City Winery to the fiddles and banjos of Gangstagrass, the Whistle Pigs, and the Bubbly Creek Bluegrass Band.

On Tuesday, Reggie’s hosts Kanye’s newest production protege, Travi$ Scott, opening for Casey Veggies. Plus Summer Family Love Triangle headlines at Subterranean for a night of psychedelia that includes Red Threads and Cold Country. And Macy Gray plays City Winery on both Tuesday and Wednesday.
