Hundreds of music industry folks descend on the city's music venues tonight through Saturday to catch dozens of local and regional acts hoping to hit the big time. That's right, it's Mobfest weekend again. Illinois Entertainer has more info, and The Reader has the schedule; get out there and catch the next Kill Hannah or Disturbed.
