City Winery Chicago, the local outpost of the New York-based wine/food/music space masterminded by Knitting Factory founder Michael Dorf, opens in August at 1200 W. Randolph. Today the venue—booked by Colleen Miller, who programmed most of the shows at the Old Town School of Folk Music for the past 17 years—announced its initial schedule. Comedian Lewis Black inaugurates City Winery Chicago beginning August 15 with a five-night run, but by far the majority of the bookings are music (apart from wine-oriented events). The fare is mostly middle-of-the-road pop rock, with a nice smattering of international music, jazz, blues, soul, and folk that's not too different from the sort of stuff Miller brought to OTS. After the jump you can check out most of the schedule, which runs through the end of the year. Tickets to all shows go on sale Monday, June 11.
