Poor Tito Jackson. Despite all the weirdness in his family, he's still singled out for having a funny name. Nevermind that he's in the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame, nevermind that he's built a successful career in the blues, he's (snicker) Tito! Anyway, you can catch the lead guitarist of the Jackson Five perform at 6:45pm this Sunday at Fitzgerald's American Music Festival, along with Waco Brothers and the Chicago Jazz Orchestra, among others. Check out the full schedule for the four-day fest, which kicks off Thursday.
