Act out your favorite movie scenes in front of a bar full of super awesome people and win prizes, like free passes to see The Punk Singer, a new documentary about Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre), and gift certificates from Odd Obsession Movies, Facets Multi-Media, and the Gene Siskel Film Center. 9pm-2am.
Sunday, November 24th: Negative Scanner at The Whistler (10pm, 21+, FREE)
Negative Scanner remind me a lot of tragically under-appreciated ’80s Chicago post-punks DA!, but heavier and a little more pissed off. The common thread is a great one though: both bands have a brooding magnetism about them and both feature incredibly powerful female lead singers. Come for the storm-cloud riffs, stay for Rebecca Valeriano-Flores’ haunting battle-cries.
With Le Tour. Showtime 9:30pm.
Chicago is a city of neighborhoods, and few things define a ‘hood more than its local watering hole. There’s always that one special spot that really just nails it every time. Perfect drinks, great bartenders, fine music, lovely crowd, and such pleasing junk hanging on the walls.
Let’s do an experiment. Clear your thoughts and focus only on alcohol. Whisper to yourself right now: If I were in X neighborhood, I’d definitely get a drink at _____.
Quick, now, before you dash out the door to go for that beverage, find your choices on the list below. We’ll serve up your answers in our February issue’s blowout drinking guide!
