Liz Phair performs on the first day of Riot Fest in 2018.
My Phair Lady
Chicago’s own has been touring to celebrate the 25th anniversary of her quintessential album “Exile in Guyville,” and she was actually just in the city to perform at Riot Fest, where she sounded fantastic. This weekend, she’ll return for a pair of shows Saturday and Sunday at Metro (3730 N. Clark St.), which should lend a better atmosphere than the wide-open fields of Douglas Park. Speedy Ortiz will open the 9 p.m. Saturday show (sold out), while the 8 p.m. Sunday show is Phair-only. Tickets: $30-$35. metrochicago.com
