Theo Epstein is taking his biannual benefit concert with him to Chicago.

The former Red Sox general manager and current Cubs team president will hold a concert benefiting Cubs charities and Epstein's Foundation To Be Named Later on June 14 at the Metro music venue in Chicago's Wrigleyville. The show will be headlined by The Smashing Pumpkins and will also feature The Figgs, Jenny Dee and the Deelinquents, and members of Buffalo Tom. Comedians Mike O'Malley, Jeff Garlin and Joel Murray will serve as the evening's emcees

Hot Stove Cool Music was founded in 2000 by former Boston Globe baseball writer Peter Gammons and former Boston Herald writer Jeff Horrigan. The event has raised more than $5 million for Epstein's foundation and the Jimmy Fund. Tickets are $50 and can be purchased on the venue's website. The concert is the night before the Cubs and Red Sox start a weekend series at Wrigley Field.

The last Hot Stove, Cool Music Boston event was held in January, and there are plans to continue to have a Boston show once a year.
