Looking for the rockingest places in Chicago

I'll be heading to Chicago this weekend for a vacationy weekend in a new city. I've got an armload of plans for various things to see and do (including the Wax Trax popup shop), but I also wouldn't mind doing some shopping while I'm down there. Suggestions for an alt-culture excursion?

What is Chicago's analog of Carytown in Richmond, or South Street in Philly, or St. Marks Place in NYC? Basically, where are the punk and metalhead record shops and divey bars? I see 'The Alley' is on North Clark, but I'm not sure if that's a standalone place or in the heart of a similar stretch of surrounding shops. Who's got suggestions for a good neighborhood to do some gothy shopping?
