I've got a whole city to hold down

Review the reviews

"The Vines [show] this weekend was the worst show I've seen in years," Daily Herald popscribe Mark Guarino said in an e-mail to Chicagomuzikblog. "Never been to a show where just 20 minutes into it, half the audience is out the door."

On that note, let's sort through the weekend's clips, starting with Guarino's published piece on that Vines debacle at the Vic.

And while we're at it, here's Trib freelancer Bob Gendron on the Vines, too.

Also from the Trib: Greg Kot on Al Green at HOB and freelancer Matthew Lurie on R. Kelly at Allstate Arena.

The Sun-Times' platoon of professional showgoers, it seems, took the weekend off.
