Lee DeWyze

"American Idol" Season 9 winner Lee DeWyze will perform as part of Viper Alley's anniversary celebration. Like Viper Alley, DeWyze, from Mount Prospect, only recently jumped into the music industry waters but both seem headed in the right direction. DeWyze with his first headlining club tour in 2011, and Viper Alley with a diverse lineup from cover bands, country and rock to pop and R&B (check out Viper's schedule at viper-alley.com). Why go: Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger Tour" at The Venue is sold out, but you still want your "Idol." Reconsider: DeWyze is no Clarkson, Chris Daughtry or Carrie Underwood. Yet. Details: 7 p.m. Saturday at Viper Alley, 275 Parkway Drive, Lincolnshire; $20-$100 (all ages); 866-468-3401, ticketweb.com
